Every maker needs a little help navigating the start up process. We've got a team of people ready and willing to help. 

We want The Loop to be a hub for makers all across Columbia and Boone County--and that includes making resources available to people regardless of where they are in the startup process. If you are a local maker, artisan, food producer, or small manufacturer please join our Makers Registry, a private listing, to receive updates on workshops, maker meetups, pop-up retail options and other promotional opportunities. To be listed publicly, all makers located in Columbia or Boone County are welcome to create a profile on our online Makers Directory.

Here are some additional recommendations for business coaching, networking, and more.
