Each year, Made In Baltimore surveys our members to collect information about their businesses. We use this information to better understand the needs of Baltimore’s craft manufacturing sector, and to guide our programming and policy recommendations.
All businesses that hold the Made In Baltimore business certification (our members) were invited to complete the self-reported survey during the months of June & July 2021. 157 businesses responded to this survey (52% of certified businesses). With the exception of the ‘Trends’ section, all information presented reflects 2020 numbers.
This report is broken into three sections that reflect the key ‘vital signs’ of the MIB business community: People, Profits, and Production Space. Our goal is to track these metrics annually, providing insight into trends within Baltimore’s maker economy. This is MIB’s third annual member survey, and the first in which we have been able to analyze trends within the maker economy over time. This year’s new Trends section includes responses from the 73 businesses that have responded to all three annual surveys.
