We're a group for all things hardware startups. The purpose of this group is to bring together folks interested in building businesses around physical technology products - to grow the Austin hardware community, raise awareness of hardware startups and resources, and learn from each other and those who have done it before.
We meet monthly at Capital Factory on 3rd Thursdays at 6:30pm. The format of the meetup usually has a featured speaker accompanied by hardware startup demos or pitches about anything hardware you're involved with. Send me an email if you want to demo! We get fed pizza and beer thanks to great sponsors. Email us if you want to be one!
If you are building hardware technology products in Austin, you're not alone. Join the revolution and start something amazing!
If your company would like to sponsor this meetup in the future, contact the organizer at forest [at] AustinHardwareStartup.com
