Silicon Valley is THE hotbed for hardware startups, so we thought it time to bring a showcase-style Meetup to the South Bay/Peninsula! We're a proud offshoot of the SF Hardware Startup Meetup, but aside from the different locale, we want to emphasize products that are, above all, smart! This means things that think for themselves, use novel materials/design, or otherwise make our world a better, more connected place.

This Meetup aims to not only expose you to the newest of products, companies, concepts & technologies, but also connect experts with those seeking advisers, freelancers with employers, founders with partners & investors, and companies with their target markets. Think of it as an eclectic, multi-role job fair (if not for some elements of a county fair) with a focus on startups developing the Internet of Things, green tech, etc. All persons welcome.

Smarter Things events feature:

(1) a rapid-fire demo session by startups & founders in all stages of development

(2) efficient networking sessions before & after presentations

(3) free [pending] food and drinks
