    Hi David and Co. This group sounds amazing and just what I was looking for. I've worked in the crowdfunding space for the last 3 years but I'm now really interested in working on my own hardware startup.

    I'm sorry I missed you guy's the first meetup but I hope to meet you all soon. Seth

      David, do you want a startup that it is "london based "?. i might ask in Makespace where there is a potential and it is based in Cambridge.

      November 13, 2013

    • David B.

      Yes please!

    I wouldn't mind talking about what I do - which is make guitar effects pedals ( ). It's not a start-up, strictly speaking - but it sure feels like one a lot of the time!

    • David B.

      Hi David, thanks for getting in touch. We already have 3 speakers for the first meetup, but I put you in the list in case someone drop out. Also you are very welcome to speak at our second meetup.

    Hi all,

    Thanks everyone for joining the group and welcome to HS-Lab.

    I am now organising venue and speakers for our first meetup. If any of you would like to talk or suggest any other activity please get in touch.

    Now we also have
    TWITTER page:
    FACEBOOK page:
    And a blog/forum where to share news, knowledge and resources is on its way.

    Looking forward to meet you guys.

      David have you considered Google campus? They seem to host many meetups there and the startup theme of the group should be of interest. http://www.campuslond...­

    I'm working on guitar effects pedals, making new sounds, and some new ways of using/interacting with them.
