Sunshine Labs was formally started in January 2014, when two community members found their small businesses had outgrown their garages and local hackerspaces (FamiLAB and Melbourne Makerspace). They joined together to form a shared workspace and design consulting firm, and began providing the community with the opportunity to use shared equipment and workspace to develop their own projects.
We are still evolving. While we no longer offer coworking space and equipment rental/access at the former two locations in Longwood and Melbourne, we still provide consultation and referral services to the community, along with prototyping services.
Members and non-members can schedule appointments and meet with experienced engineers and business owners. At the (free!) initial consultation meeting, SL (Sunshine Labs) helps form an idea of what is needed to get the client’s idea manufactured, and presents a plan of how to coordinate production among SL members, along with the associated costs.
We are makers, inventors, and creatives, and love to help others with their ideas. Contact us and we can meet with you!
