Membership Application

SFMade’s criteria for joining the Certified Local Manufacturer Program are:

  • Headquartered in San Francisco and/or has a registered business license in San Francisco;
  • Primarily design and manufacture a physical product (vs a digital product or a service);
  • Manufacture one or more products in San Francisco;
  • Have a San Francisco-based work force with the desire to grow over time;
  • Have one full time employee;
  • For manufacturers of consumer products: You must have one or more products for sale at a retail store or online.

Recognizing that companies who choose to manufacture locally sustain substantially higher costs as compared to other parts of the world – SFMade offers a “brand platform” to enable local manufacturers to identify and differentiate themselves, and to help consumers identify locally-made products. Our Certified Local Manufacturer Program provides certification of products that are made in San Francisco and offers local manufacturers access to a suite of tools designed to help them connect more powerfully with their customer base, including exclusive use of the trademarked SFMade logo and brand collateral; listing in the SFMade Directory and other shop local directories and search engines; and exclusive selling opportunities at SFMade hosted and other local events.

At this time there is no cost to join the Certified Local Manufacturer Program.
