Solid State Startups - Saleae LLC

Saleae LLC is a Startup founded by two brothers, Joe and Mark. We make logic analyzers - test equipment for engineers and developers working on hardware projects.

We’ll talk about our humble beginnings, our biggest challenges, and what we’ve learned. It’s a story of a startup without funding on a quest to design a product that could be profitable from the beginning, at the lowest quantity possible, without significant capital upfront. The product was the Saleae Logic.

    This is my first meeting and really enjoyed it.
    Good to hear the real bootstrap things and the persistence of the founders and the fruit of their success.

    So great to hear the bootstrap story about hardware - innovation, disruptive pricing, courage, scappiness. Nice to talk to other attendees.

    This is the first time I attend the solid state startups meetup. Joe and Mark gave a nice talk and very frank and honest in sharing their story. Very well designed product with clear competitive advantage, wish they will grow fast to the next level and penetrate into broader market

    Too honest in their presentation... I would never talk about a wind down strategy - need a PR person to steer them. But with that honesty, makes me know that anyone working with them will be treated well. It seems like Saleae had a slow start but I see fruition in the near year as they leverage off their experience.
