Learn about the ATX startup and hardware scene with Josh Baer and Sam Spetalnick

  • Apr 21, 2014 · 4:30 PM
  • Capital Factory

This is a paid event - please purchase your ticket here.

Join us a special edition of Intro to the Austin Startup Scene with Joshua Baer and Hardware Scene with Sam Spetalnick!

Are you new to the Austin Startup Community? Thinking about moving here? Trying to figure out how to plug in? Come hear a comprehensive overview from one of the local community leaders and get a chance to introduce yourself and ask questions.

You'll learn where the entrepreneurs hang out, what investors are active in town, how to hire programmers, and more.

Hardware startups have their own set of risks and challenges – prototyping, capital intensive launches, and manufacturing risks to name a few. Fortunately, Austin’s hardware startup scene has been growing stronger for the last decade.

Sam Spetalnick will provide an overview of the resources available from communities and resources to designers and investors.

REMINDER: We have a limited number seats so - we are requiring that you purchase a ticket on Eventbrite - in order to attend. This will surely sell out like the last one did!

    Hey, all. One of the speakers said there'd be a link to the slides. Does anyone have that link?

    Awesome to hear about the goings on in the HW arena. The barrier to entry is higher than SW, but the potential value is just beginning to be noticed. Hopefully Austin will embrace it and carve a name as THE place to be if you want a product you can hold in your hand.

    Hi Guys,

    I am a private equity investor currently based in Melbourne but will likely move to Austin or similar in 12 months time.

    I will be going to China Shanghai and Chong Qing to meet my Chinese partners in 2 weeks.

    On the off chance that anyone is looking to set up something in Chonq Qing, China

    Very interested to set up viable projects for the city.

    Google Chongqing with its population of 30+ m. 

    Any interest to have a quick chat I am available on Skype (if you give me a heads up)
