Hey Hardwarians! It's time for another SF Hardware Startup Meetup!
Our sponsor this month is Indiegogo - who you all know as a preeminent crowdfunding platform, and more specifically they're really into doing hardware projects through their site. Kate Drane, hardware entrepreneur herself and Indiegogo's head of hardware, will be coming out to talk with us about what she's seeing in the space and how they see it shaping up.
The event is hosted by Runway Incubator who are a startup incubator with an awesome space inside the Twitter building on Market St., and they even have Skycatch - their own resident hardware startup. (Looking to add more)
DEMOS - If you've got a prototype to show us, or if you just want to talk about what you're working on, use this sign-up sheet to grab your spot! The format is 2 minutes maximum (hard stop): no projector, no slides. It's just you + a prototype and a microphone! Remember, people who've never demoed get preference over those that have already! Also, be there at 6pm sharp to secure your spot!
Volunteers - If you'd like to volunteer at this meetup, sign up here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1cX8FsEQ3kZBT00J0JjD1Ow9oik7Gu_riqZyADvzvoQk/viewform
- Hackbright Academy is putting on: Silicon Chef a female-centric hardware hackathon.
- RoboBusiness is Oct 23-25th, if you have robophilia like I do, it should be a good time!
As always, let me know if I can help, or if you want to! Especially if you've got sponsors or venues you can connect us to!
