The Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Initiative

Strengthening regional connections, growing regional manufacturing

With its position at the epicenter of technology, design, and innovation, the Bay Area has the potential to shape the future of manufacturing. We must work together to ensure that our region seizes this opportunity to retain and create middle-class jobs for a more equitable Bay Area.

Join us. Be part of the resurgent Bay Area manufacturing economy.


Launched at the 2016 Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit, the Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Initiative (BAUM) is a three-year project to facilitate the creation of a well-defined and interconnected regional manufacturing ecosystem.

The 30 Bay Area partners include: Alameda, Antioch, Berkeley, Brentwood, Concord, Contra Costa County, Emeryville, Fairfield, Fremont, Hayward, Livermore, Milpitas, Morgan Hill, Napa, Newark, Oakland, Oakley, Petaluma, Pittsburg, Pleasanton, Richmond, San Francisco, San Jose, San Leandro, San Rafael, Santa Rosa, South San Francisco, Union City, Vacaville, and Vallejo.

At the Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit we highlight the strength, diversity, and versatility of manufacturing in the region with speakers ranging from artisan to cutting edge manufacturers and the cities and communities that nurture them.

This year, join over 400 stakeholders at the Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit to partner with this growing collaboration to cultivate local middle-income jobs and to create a diverse regional economy.

The Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit provides a unique opportunity for you to partner in this growing regional collaboration to advance the number of middle-income jobs and create a more equitable and diverse regional economy.

We invite you to sponsor the Bay Area Urban Manufacturing Summit, a celebration of local manufacturing and regional collaboration.
