Do Lab helps both start up companies and entrepreneurs

Start up lab free of charge to Geekdom members

SAN ANTONIO – Equipment such as 3D printers, laser machines and computers are available to Geekdom members for free use in a new maker space called the "Do Lab."

The Do Lab is located inside of Geekdom and helps businesses by allowing them to use their equipment.

Drue Placette and Dale Bracey created the place to give people resources for their business.

"My goal is help foster and enable entrepreneurs and people looking for jobs," Placette said.

Entrepreneur Placette founded Do Lab, a maker space lab full of equipment he collected over the years.

"One day, it just kind of all came together, our visions, our views, the availability of the space, and we jumped on the opportunity," Bracey said.

Do Lab is free of charge for Geekdom members, however they hope to expand to others by creating workshops across the community. ​
