9th NY Hardware Startup Meetup

Hey guys,

Ever struggled with getting funding for your hardware startup? What stage should you be at to get VC funding? Don't know who the investors interested in hardware are? All these questions and more will be addressed in our next meetup, which will be around getting investor funding for your startup. We'll be having a panel discussion with early stage VCs who have invested in hardware companies, and that will be followed with 2 startup pitches, receiving questions and feedback from the VC panel.


6:30 - 7:00pm: arrival, pizza and beer

7:00 - 7:45pm: panel discussion with VCs:

Adam Enbar, Charles River Ventures (invested in Rethink Robotics and Pebble)

Matthew Witheiler, Flybridge Capital (invested in Digital Lumens)

Tom Loverro, RRE Ventures (invested in Makerbot)

Zack Schildhorn, Lux Capital (invested in Shapeways)

Ryan Armbrust, ff VC (invested in Interaxon)

7:45 - 8:00pm: Josh Stein from Adheretech to pitch

8:00 - 8:15pm: Pavel Khodorkovskiy from Enertiv

8:15 - 9:30pm: finish beer and networking

Looking forward to seeing you all there! Also, when you RSVP I will need you to include an email address, as NYC Alley requires it as part of the list for security.

      I'd be interested in meeting. I'm working with/advising a start-up called keen home (mykeenhome.com) that is developing a wireless connected HVAC vent for homes.
