Vocademy – “The Place to Learn and Make Anything” – opened its doors on October 6, at a grand opening celebration. Vocademy is a resource for facility for hands-on learning and training in areas such as printing, machinery, woodworking, electronics, sewing, and others.
Vocademy used crowdsourced funding through Fundable.com, and reached 155% of their fundraising goal in 4 days. For several years, Vocademy operated out of a small 1,500 square foot facility. With a goal of becoming a place where individuals could learn and practice hands-on learning, their funding helped them move into a new 15,000 square foot facility, upgrade where needed, and purchase equipment. Their new facility is located at 1635 Spruce Street in Riverside, 92507.
