Under his leadership, TechShop revenue grew 20-fold in five years, and multiple new locations have opened across the U.S. Mark has held executive positions at such firms as Kinko’s, Avery Dennison, and Health Net. His book, The Maker Movement Manifesto, was released in 2013.

In this podcast, Mark talks about the power of the Maker Movement, and how this changes not just the way consumers buy goods, but also how brands will market to them. He discusses why key forces converging make this the ideal time for the next creative revolution to take hold, and why it’s likely this may be even bigger than the Internet.
