Promoting or selling a product or service at the Faire?
I DO plan to sell merchandise (items I’ve created myselF) as a “For Profit” maker.
I plan to promote my Startup or Company’s product at the Faire, but, will NOT be selling products at the event.
I DO NOT intend to sell merchandise or promote a product.
The fee for Tinkerers is $50, Not-for-Profits is $100, For Profit (under $1 million annual revenue) is $250 and For Profit ($1 million or more annual revenue) is $500, which will be invoiced in advance and payable prior to receiving your Maker credentials. We believe that Makers who may receive a financial benefit from the Westport Mini Maker Faire should contribute to producing the event.
