Revitalizing Local Manufacturing through the DesignHouse Process, featuring Paul Hatch, founder of DesignHouse

Catalyst Connection is proud to present Paul Hatch, President of Teams Design and founder of DesignHouse in Chicago.  Join us at AlphaLab Gear for an interactive event focusing on ways to ignite innovation in small manufacturing.

DesignHouse Jams offer an engaging opportunity for participants to network and explore the competitive advantage of combining Design Thinking with local manufacturing. On September 8th, we will explore Cygnus Manufacturing Company (CMC) and their plethora of metal machining capabilities. Your participation will expand your design skills and your ideas will build innovation in the local manufacturing sector strengthening your community.

At DesignHouse we reverse the design process, beginning with existing manufacturing capabilities to create ideas and opportunities around local machines and materials. This revolutionary process leads to new employment in our local communities, creates environmentally sustainable supply chains, and strengthens our communities by building the local economy.

Come join the community—whether you are a maker, designer, engineer, marketer or innovator—network and collaborate for this good cause. Attendance is limited to 50 and tickets are $25 or $10 with student ID. Please contact Lynn at [email protected] with proof of ID for student code.

Get your tickets here!

Additional thanks to Citizens Bank, Innovation Works, and Buchanan Ingersoll for sponsoring this event!
