Episode 7: Community Spotlight – With Toolbox Co Founders Tom Simpson and Andy Barrett


Is Toolbox a Maker Space? A Business Incubator? Perhaps it’s just what Spokane needs- a little of both. We sit down with Tom Simpson and Andy Barrett, Co Founders of Spokane’s newest collaborative innovation center for manufacturing and product-based startups and entrepreneurs. Sitting across the lot from the Mckinstry Innovation Center, Toolbox is the newest hub for ideas to be created, iterated, and launched into reality. Tom and Andy share with us their reason for the concept, what businesses are currently in the space, and how to plug into the greater maker community hosted inside.
