Hardwired NYC #2

  • This location is shown only to members

We have amazing speakers for this second Hardwired NYC from the worlds of 3D printing, internet of things and wearable computing.

Jenny Lawton, President, MakerBot.  MakerBot was just acquired by Stratasys in June for $403 million in stock.  MakerBot is the leader in desktop 3D printing. MakerBot reports that during the first quarter of 2013, the company generated $11.5 million in total revenue, compared to $15.7 million for all of 2012., MakerBot's online content portal for the sharing of user-generated digital design content, has more than 90,000 3D product files available for sharing, and generates more than 500,000 unique visitors and 1,000,000 downloads each month.

Mike Harris, CEO, ZonoffZonoff is the technology that connects the Internet of Things to everyone. As the “brains” of the Connected Home, Zonoff provides a comprehensive software platform that enables partners such as electronic device makers, service providers and retailers to deliver new products and services to the consumer mass market. The Zonoff Connected Home Platform consists of Home, Cloud, and App software and powers  everything from entry level point solutions to comprehensive home automation, remote control, energy management, and safety monitoring. Zonoff also provides ongoing revenue opportunities for its channel partners as consumer’s expand and upgrade their home.

Brian Langel, Co-Fonder and CTO, Dash. A recent graduate of Techstars NYC 2013's class, Dash connects your car to your phone, enabling smarter everyday driving.  Dash helps you make the roads safer, more affordable and much more social.

Ryan Rzepecki, Founder and CEO, Social Bicycles.  Social Bicycles is a transportation technology company that provides bikesharing equipment and hosted software. Traditional bikeshare programs like CitiBike require a network of kiosks and docking stations. This infrastructure takes up a lot of public space and costs over $5000/bike. Instead of using 'smart racks', Social Bicycles builds 'smart bikes'. Each bike has an integrated GPS/GSM enabled lock that works with regular bike racks. Users can reserve bikes through the web, a mobile app, or on the bike itself. This approach eliminates the specialized infrastructure and is 1/4 the cost of existing solutions. Social Bicycles offers an integrated system and produces the bicycles, locking system, electronics, and the web/mobile software used by riders and system administrators. The NYC-based company has 4 pilots that have launched this year, including one across the river in Hoboken, New Jersey. In addition, the company has won large municipal contracts for Tampa and Phoenix set to launch this winter.

    Excellent presentation by Zanoff, SOBI and makerbot and good demos. The venue was great. Thanks for arranging this Matt. I liked the technical queries answered by the presenters after the session. May be, next time, we can cover them during the demos
