Hi hardwarians,

I hope you’re all enjoying the Summer and are taking advantage that your investors are at the Hamptons to get product out the door! We’re taking a break this month from the meetup, but we’ll be back in full force in September.

Just a few notices for you about what’s going on in the hardware scene this August:

  • Applications are now open for URBAN-X Cohort 02 – Build your urban focused hardware startup with MINI and SOSV HAX in their brand new location in Greenpoint Brooklyn this Fall. URBAN-X is focused on the convergence of Smart Cities, Connected Real Estate, Resilient Energy Systems, and the Future of Mobility, Big Data, and Digitalization of Urban Infrastructure. If you are feeling particularly community oriented, please click here to tweet to your followers:
  • Apply to pitch at this summer’s premier smart city event. On Tuesday August 16th BMW iVentures, URBAN-X by MINI and HAX, the Future Labs (formely known as NYU Incubators) will come together to host an event for entrepreneurs and engineers shaping the future of cities through technology. Focusing on the convergence of Smart Cities, the Future of Mobility, Data and Digitalization of Urban Infrastructure, we're looking for pre-seed to early growth stage startups and Founders to pitch their companies in front of an amazing line up of New York City municipal officials, Investors, BMW iVentures and URBAN-X.

We are a global community, with 45,000 users from over 45 countries, including engineers from India, Nepal and the Philippines who are eager to meet like-minded people to work with them on their innovative projects. Check out this inspiring article in The Memo about one of users, a young Nepali engineer who built a solar-powered charger and torchlight he named "Nepal's Light" for his quake-ravaged village.We built this platform for people like you - highly motivated makers - and we urge you to register an account today at and join our passionate maker community!
