SF Hardware Startup Meetup, April 26th @ Runway Incubator

Hey Hardwarians!!!

It's time for another SF Hardware Startup Meetup Friday, April 26th, at 6PM! This time we're going to be at the Runway Incubator in the Twitter building on 1355 Market Street, and our sponsor this month is Bolt: a Boston-based accelerator program built just for hardware startups. Bolt provides on-site experts, a prototyping shop, help with manufacturing / commercialization, as well as seed money to help get your venture off the ground.

Bolt's Managing Director, Ben Einstein, will be there to kick-off the event by giving a talk about their program, upcoming cycle, and where he sees the hardware space going. To learn more, check out their site:

For the uninitiated, this event is all about bringing the hardware startup community closer together, and a big part of that is knowing what cool stuff is happening. The way we do that is by having 15-20 Lightning Demos that are a max of 2 minutes each at the beginning of the event, and then we let everyone get to talking with our speakers and each other.

If you'd like to do a demo: whether it's a fully-backed, VC-funded company, or an idea you think people should know about - please sign-up for a demo ASAP on our Demo Spreadsheet.

Event Schedule:

6PM: Doors Open; Food/Drink Arrives

6:30PM: Demos Start

7:15PM: Demos end; Talking begins

9PM: Nick kicks you out
