City of Chandler Mayor, Kevin Hartke, addressing attendees at the makerspace.
The Chandler makerspace run by TechShop until it went bankrupt has reopened after Arizona State University stepped in to help serve entrepreneurs, artists and others who had lost a place to create products and other work. The makerspace at 249 E. Chicago St. in the ASU Chandler Innovation Center closed in November 2017 and TechShop Inc. filed for bankruptcy in February of last year. Arizona State University “worked through the bankruptcy process to acquire the equipment and reopen the makerspace for the public, as well as for Arizona State University,” said Ji Mi Choi, ASU associate vice-president in charge of the university’s Knowledge Enterprise Development Leading Entrepreneurship + Innovation initiative.
