Day Two of the NAM’s State of Manufacturing Tour 2018 took us to MakeTime Inc., a manufacturing software companythat helps manufacturers make money off of their idle equipment by matching them with other manufacturers who can utilize it.

One thing that struck us most about MakeTime Inc. was their workforce: their start-up vibe office was full of young, diverse employees passionate both about technology, manufacturing and how their work is helping others.
