I love Jens desire to help other entrepreneurs grow and prosper.
I obviously do too – and if I was independently wealthy, I would probably help people for free.
Jen shares how Makers Collective came to be, and how they continue to develop the ability to help entrepreneurs grow and expand their businesses.
Jen gives some insight into their annual Makers Summit and how they strive to give the “how”, not just the “what” so entrepreneurs take away actionable step and practical techniques.
Makers Collective is also the proud creator of the Indie Craft Parade which brings hundreds of vendors together for a 3-day showcase drawing thousands of potential shoppers from all over the Southern United States. Many makers get their start at this special event and go on to prosper in their business.

More about Jen
Jen Moreau hails from Greenville, South Carolina, where she is the community director for the Makers Collective, an organization that empowers creative entrepreneurs while cultivating a supportive community around them. As part of this mission, the Makers Collective hosts a number of annual events and local initiatives, including Indie Craft Parade and the Makers Summit. Indie Craft Parade is an artist and makers market which hosts the best handmade artisans from around the South, and the Makers Summit is a business conference for creative entrepreneurs.
Jen has been with the Makers Collective since 2010, after participating in the first Indie Craft Parade as an exhibitor. Her role in the Makers Collective includes staff organization and volunteer coordination as well as new community initiatives and general event administration with her co-directors, Erin Godbey and Elizabeth Ramos.
While not working for the Makers Collective, Jen can be found at Dapper Ink, a print and design company which she owns with her husband. She spends any free time reading nerdy books, experimenting in the kitchen, or exploring the great outdoors – usually hiking the Blue Ridge Mountains or paddling in Lake Jocassee.
