LYNDONVILLE — The Northeast Kingdom might soon have an incubator space for entrepreneurs and hobbyists who want to invent or create mechanical or electronic devices.
Similar clubs have been popping up around the country and elsewhere in Vermont. The project, or group, is sometimes called a “maker space.” One opened last week in Burlington called the Generator.
Three men who dreamed up the idea for the local group, which they call the Foundry, did an interview to explain the concept last week.
“We want to make an incubation zone,” said Jim Schenck, an engineer for a manufacturing company in Lisbon, New Hampshire. He and two friends, Thomas Bishop of Waterford and Greg Shoppe, who has an online promotion company called Graph Genius Inc., started talking about the idea and decided to see what others thought.
