Ever struggled with getting funding for your hardware startup? What stage should you be at to get VC funding? Don't know who the investors interested in hardware are? All these questions and more will be addressed in our next meetup, which will be around getting investor funding for your startup. We'll be having a panel discussion with early stage VCs who have invested in hardware companies, and that will be followed with 2 startup pitches, receiving questions and feedback from the VC panel.
