What we’re about
NYC has countless tech meet-ups and events, but where's all the hardware love? We want to bring together a strong community of folks eager to build businesses with physical products, be it a cold fusion engine or a bionic fork. Whether you're an engineer, designer, CEO, investor, or anyone interested in being a part of the hardware start-up eco-system, come join us and let's create an amazing addition to the tech scene in the Big Apple.
We're always looking for community partners, if you'd like to get involved (speaker, space, sponsor) please fill out this form!
