New York, NY
Hope you're enjoying the week and looking forward to our upcoming meetup, which will have Dragon Innovation talk about the transition in manufacturing and it's new crowdfunding site, as well as some cool startups hitting the NY scene.
I wanted to mention some things going on:
- MakeSimplyX Education, our generous meetup sponsors, will be hosting a second workshop on PCB Techniques which will take place on Monday, October 28th, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM. Whether you’re going to work with PCBs yourself or to have someone else do the heavy lifting, this workshop will teach the essentials that you need to either get started, buy services, or manage someone doing it for you. Use discount code HWM13OCT for $10 off. And our very own Jonathan Hirschman will be the teacher, so what more could you ask for?
- TOMORROW October 11th is the deadline to apply for the R/GA Accelerator for connected devices so get those applications in soon!
- Let's show some love to MYBELL, a NY startup making a customizable bicycle bell by our very own Peter Pottier who presented a few months back. They are currently competing in 2 national competitions and they need your vote! (1) Engadget’s Insert Coin, which looks to help make an inventors dream a reality (deadline today). If you vote for MYBELL we will be able to debut this product at Engadget’s Expand conference in November, win cash prizes, and get a lot of press. Please vote for MYBELL by clicking on this sentence, which is a link. (2) Miller Lite’s Tap the Future. Your votes can help them win $10K, which will help make MYBELL a reality. Just click on this sentence, which is a link to vote for MYBELL. Please vote and help them out!
- I Heart Engineering, a Brooklyn based robotics startup that pitched at the meetup a few months ago is announcing an excess inventory auction and open house - you can get great robotics parts as well as tools and components for a great price. Learn more here.
That's all for now! See you in a couple of weeks!
