Some of San Francisco’s most beloved small businesses are artisan manufacturers. Yet some city policies make it more difficult for these small businesses to stay in San Francisco. What should we be doing to encourage artisan manufacturing inside the city limits? Come hear insights on this topic from Kate Sofis of SFMade, Christina Olague of the San Francisco Planning Commission, Janet Clyde of the Small Business Commission and representatives from Timbuk2 and Jack and Jason’s Pancakes.

Special thanks to TechShop for hosting the event!
