HS LAB has the purpose of providing a platform to support the growth of the hardware startup ecosystem by facilitating knowledge exchange, partnerships and connections. We are a community of entrepreneurs, professional makers, investors, brands and industry experts with a specific focus on hardware entrepreneurship in the digital age. We aim to inspire and educate startuppers in London and internationally. Hardware is hard and we want to make it easier, building a community of friends which are willing to help each other to succeed.
We host monthly events in London where the community meet to network and listen to inspiring talks. The speakers are not only successful hardware founders but also innovators who are developing services for hardware startups. We cover many topics: from manufacturing and supply chain management to funding and Kickstarter strategies, from prototyping and incubation to distribution. Sharing tricks, tips and connections with each other.
