Maker’s Row is an online marketplace launched in November 2012 that connects American manufacturers with small, medium-sized, and product-based businesses. The site lists more than 1,400 manufacturers. Makers Row was co-founded by Matthew Burnett, Tanya Menendez and Scott Weiner. Burnett, an industrial designer, previously owned and operated a watch line and a fashion line of leather goods. In early 2011, Burnett partnered with Tanya Menendez, then a Goldman Sachs analyst, to manage sales and operations at the fashion line. While working on the fashion line, Menendez came up with the idea to create a resource that would bring factories in the United States online in one place to make American factories more accessible. In May 2012, the Burnett and Menendez applied to The Brooklyn Beta Summer Camp where they would meet Scott Weiner, who was chosen to be the founding technical lead for the group. On July 19, 2013 Makers Row announced 1 million in seed funding.
