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.

78th Hardware Meetup: Virtual Edition #14

Online event

It's time for another Hardware Meetup! Not to be deterred by our inability to assemble in person, we plan to build on the energy and inspiration on display at the last month's online event.

Special thanks to our sponsor Onshape (https://bit.ly/366REyL) for making this event possible. Onshape is a next-generation SaaS design platform that speeds up product development. It’s an all-in-one system that combines CAD, release management, workflow, collaboration, analytics, admin tools, and an API with more than 50 engineering applications. Onshape helps extended design teams work together faster and helps executives make better business decisions.

Here’s the rough agenda for the evening:

7:00 - 7:10pm Mix & mingle in topical breakout rooms

7:10 - 7:20pm Welcome notes
