About us.

Who we are AIMS@ is an open-access hands-on workstation of Aster Innovation Company Limited @. AIMs has started its journey in 2019 to explore the invisible idea to visible prototype and product making through fabrication tools. AIMs is free to access to public makers with membership is accompanied by a change in the relationship between public-private organizations and users in order to promote the women empowerment of the inhabitants of Bangladesh to these fabrication practices. We strongly believe in and practice in-field and practical solutions with local inputs. AIMS believes that understanding, tinkering, and innovating with technologies around us favors the idea of an active user who makes use of the technologies for his/her own purposes, instead of being a passive consumer of such technologies. Moreover, AIMS focuses on learning-by-doing, on STEM subjects with prototyping, and on making designs that can help to foster a link between education, innovation, and industry, as well as real-world applications. Last but not least, AIMS-maker-space aimed also be as a hub that creates a conducive environment as an incubator for future social innovations and business start-ups.
