Thank you all for coming at our last event! It was great to hear some good startup insights from BERG and Blocks and to discover more about HereEast future London's hub for hardware startups.
But ... I know you want more! *SURPRISE*: we organised another event next week with a very special guest, a hardware startups rockstar: Brady Forrest the Vice-President of Highway1 incubator in San Francisco.
We are going to leave plenty of time for Q&A and for you to have a chat with Brady after his talk. Ready? Specs of the evening below.

They are launching their product on Kickstarter next month and they are ready to demo at HS-LAB!
Cliq: "Cliq is a touch sensitive smartphone case that puts the things you need most at the tip of your fingers. It can shortcut just about anything on your phone, from a dedicated camera button, to full music control, or calling the people you need most. It's completely wireless, you'll never need to charge it, and you can customise the three buttons to carry out up to six commands."
