The SEMA Garage is seeking SEMA-member input for a special project, “They All Started in a Garage,” to celebrate industry innovators who began in a garage and grew their business into a legacy name or brand.
If you have a suggestion for an industry pioneer, icon or current innovator who started this way, please take a moment to submit their name to Mike Spagnola, SEMA vice president of OEM and product development programs. Simply state the company’s name, founder, date of startup and a brief description of their story. The staff of the SEMA Garage will take it from there.
“While we aren’t yet ready to disclose the exact nature of this project, we can say it will become a recognizable feature of the new SEMA Garage,” said Spagnola. “We envision it not only as a tribute to the innovators and risk-takers who helped build and continue to drive our industry, but as an inspiration to others seeking to bring their own ground-breaking ideas to fruition.”
All suggestions should be submitted by August 7. Further details about the project will be announced in upcoming editions of SEMA eNews.
