Pittsburgh Hardware Startup Meetup - Inaugural Meeting!

This is the kick-off meeting of the Pittsburgh Hardware Startup Meetup. Here's a loose agenda:

6:00pm - Hellos / Pizza / Meet cool people

6:30pm - Quick product demos / pitches / lightning talks (~2 minutes each)

7:00pm-ish - Pitches end, talk with everyone.

9:00pm - The official event ends, and we go to our respective bars of choice (Harvard & Highland is close and a personal favorite)

Demos
If you'd like to demo, sign up on the Demo Spreadsheet.
Demos should be 2 minutes and no powerpoint, etc - just you, a microphone and hopefully your prototype/product.

I'm super excited about the great hardware startups we have here in Pittsburgh. Please help get the word out about the first meetup and follow @PghHWStartups for the latest updates. Let me know if there's anything I can help with and I hope to see you on April 23rd!

    WOW, who knew! I was amazed at the depth and breadth of hardware technology being developed here, and we only saw a small part of what's out there. NOTE to attendees - have business cards; print your own for under $20. Also, work a little on an elevator pitch; be able to give a quick overview when someone asks, "What are you working on?"

    Can't wait for next meetup!!
