Here's what some of our students are saying about our programs: 
"The Madesmith Incubator really helped me nail down the essence of my brand and its importance.  It helped me shift from just selling product, to selling a change to a more sustainable lifestyle.  It also helped me in a very simple day to day way by making clear where and what I should be investing my time in and resources in.  And finally, through the case studies and the office hours, it helped me to feel good about my business and the amount of growth I can successfully manage." - Jennifer Connor, Pennyroyal Design (Sonoma, CA)
