It's time for another Hardware Startup Meetup! This time we'll be hosting the event at Bloomberg Beta, an early stage VC fund from Bloomberg LP. The space is located at Pier 3 on the Embarcadero in San Francisco.
Our sponsor this month is Dragon Innovation who work with hardware startups to bring them from prototype to high volume production. They're the folks behind some of the best known hardware startups in the scene: Makerbot, Pebble, Romotive, Sifteo, Orbotix and many more. We're excited to have them come in to tell us all about how they do their thing!
Space is tight (and so is security), so we'll need you to sign-up quick and if you don't get a spot we won't be able to have anyone crash. So be mindful of that. Also, when you sign-up there's a question asking for your first/last name + organization - make sure to fill that out because they need to know to let you in.
If you WANT TO DEMO - then we really want you! Use that link to put your name on the spreadsheet, and you're guaranteed a spot. Also, if you've already presented your project a bunch of times, we'd prefer you hold off until you have an update before you do a demo - so we can get new people doing pitches.
6pm - Door's Open, and we have beer and pizza
6:30pm - Pitches Start
7:15pm - Wrap up the Pitches, now more
9pm - We kick you out ;-)
Here's some other cool stuff going on in the Bay Area Hardware Scene:
- Bay Area Modular Electronics Meetup - Our own Nahid Alam started this group, and I'm excited to check it out!
- SF Internet of Things Meetup - If you can't get into our meetup - make sure to check out the SF IoT meetup on the 25th. They've got Hugo from ElectricImp coming out to talk connected devices.
- IEEE + Eric from Pebble - Eric Migicovsky will be talking about the Pebble story on July 23rd in Mountain View.
- r/HWStartups - As always - if you're looking for the latest in hardware startup news - check out our Hardware Startups sub-Reddit!
Let me know if there's anything I can help with, or if you want to help start something that's cool too!
