I hope you’ve already signed up to our 17th HW meetup happening this Monday at our new venue Microsoft in Times Square. We are going to have some pretty impressive startups presenting and a great crowd! It’s been a while so here are your hardware related announcements for this week!
Events and Announcements
1) Techcrunch Disrupt in NY is doing a hardware exhibition called Hardware Alley for startups in the space, to take place on May 7th. I’ve heard these are a really good showcase for your startup so you may want to consider becoming an exhibitor.
2) Many of you may have heard that Shoplocket got recently acquired by PCH International. One of the interesting things coming out of this acquisition is a blog called Blueprint. It has great articles about building hardware startups, and has interviews with hardware superstars and a great resources section. Happy reading!
3) Heidi Anderson, a member of this meetup and an employee at ITAC, a non-profit organization that helps companies manufacture in the US, has just created a meetup called Urban Manufacturing. They plan to do talks about manufacturing (no surprise there) as well as factory tours in the city and other great events.
1) Canary, the NY based home security startup that pitched at the meetup a while back, recently raised $10M and are hiring like crazy. The founders are awesome and it's one of the few startups I know that have beautiful design in their DNA. Here is the list of job openings they have!
2) On April 24th NY Tech Day is happening – it’s a one-day job fair for startups. I went last year and it’s got a good presence of hardware startups looking to hire folks like you! It’s free to attend, and if you’re hiring there is a fee but this could be a good way to get exposed to a bunch of people.
3) A consumer healthcare tech startup at the Zahn Center is looking to fill three positions this summer: an electrical engineer, a mechanical engineer as well as an iOS developer. They are looking for a freelancer or a Summer intern. The startup is developing some pretty amazing technology and the founders are great!
4) Bolt, the awesome hardware incubator based in Boston is looking to add one talented generalist to their team. This role includes a mix of prototype engineering, shop management, and community building and is a great opportunity to see how hardware gets from prototype to production.
