It's time for our last meetup of 2013! This has been a wild year for the meetup: we've more than doubled from just over 1000 members in January to over 2300 now. No denying this movement is a real (big) thing!
To help us celebrate, Highway1 is sponsoring our event, and also announcing that their Spring 2014 applications are open to find 15 hardware startups for their incubator in San Francisco. VP of Highway1, Brady Forrest, will be there telling us all about the program and great resources they offer.
Hosting us at their awesome / massive space in S. San Francisco is Counsyl who provide genomic analysis for big life-decisions (like pre-pregnancy testing), and do it with wildly cool automation.
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: just you + 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 want to volunteer, please sign-up here!
Getting there: The venue is in South San Francisco. It's quite a hike from the S. SF BART/Caltrain station, but if you'd like to carpool down - use the comment section of this Meetup event page to coordinate!
- Makers @ The Mint: Our own co-organizer Erik Katz is putting on a pop-up maker retail event this weekend (Nov 23-24) 11am-6pm at Mint Plaza in San Francisco. For more info: MakerNexus.com
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!
