Open Works, a makerspace in Baltimore, attracts both hobbyists and entrepreneurs looking to rent studios, tools, and equipment.

As Open Works finishes its third year, Dr. Ron Williams of Coppin State University tells us about a new study tracing its impact on the city and state economy. Executive director Will Holman says job creation is a top priority. Read the report here.

Plus, Dominique Hellgeth of Greenmount Tile and Austin Brown of Global Air Media describe how they used resources of Open Works to grow their businesses.
