Meet the Makers
Who has what it takes to win a purchase order from the SFU Spirit Shop?
The time has come to introduce the #MadeBySFU competitors. And we have to say, they’re a talented bunch! From vibrant artwork to sustainable fashion, this year’s competitors are truly passionate about their products.
We are excited to be hosting the #MadeBySFU competition online again this year. Ultimately, we held on to the core of #MadeBySFU which is to celebrate product entrepreneurs. In a year where small businesses are disproportionately impacted by COVID-19, we hope the competition can shine a light on the amazing entrepreneurs at SFU and give them encouragement in this time.
We found ways to pivot the competition and bring the marketplace online. You will be able to shop thier products at the marketplace day on October 28! Register here!
Without further ado, let’s meet the makers of #MadeBySFU 2021!
