Dear hardwarians,

I hope you all enjoyed the meetup last week – what a great group of startups. In case you missed it, below is a recap. Our next meetup is on 4/6, so mark that date in your calendars!

  • We had Canary talk about their journey from prototype to a home security product that’s in more than 7000 retail stores.
  • Eight makes a mattress cover that incorporates the most accurate sleep tracker on the market. They’re offering a discount code to the meetup group: HWARE40 for $40 which must be redeemed by April 1st. They are also looking for a Head of Hardware, and an Electrical Engineering contractor to improve schematics/layouts with few incremental changes and component swaps, design test jigs and make appropriate changes to support the certification process.
  • Qleek demonstrated their modern take on creating a mixing tape, a beautiful custom made physical bookmark for your digital content.
  • Thanks to our amazing sponsors: Canary, UL and their startup program, and Bolt, the seed stage VC focused on hardware. Check out their toolbox blog posts for entrepreneurs.
