When we at Make Good opened our doors in 2010, a core part of our vision was to represent the remarkable artisans, makers, creators and designers on both sides of our border. Inspired by what we recognized as a “conversation” of creativity and innovation happening in both San Diego and Tijuana—an ethos that transcended our militarized border wall—we sought to represent makers from both cities. The creativity and innovation among this group transcended the border, so we figured we needed to do likewise.
Six years have passed since Make Good opened, and this trans-border practice has taken us down amazing paths and introduced to equally amazing and inspiring people, many of who have become our dear friends.
Today, we’re excited to announce what we see as a natural expression of this idea of transcending borders. Make Good is partnering with the San Diego Diplomacy Council to host a bright young entrepreneur from Latin America, Marcos Meza. Part of the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative funded by the U.S. State Department, Marcos’ line of business is similar to ours, and he’ll be working with us for a month, learning about what we do and bringing some of his own insight to the table. If you stop in the shop in October/November, make sure and say hello to Marcos!
