HardwareStartupMeetup

The upcoming 4th event for the Hardware Startup Meetup will feature a discussion about the Mayor Bloomberg and Economy Development Corporation Competition (Adafruit is one of the industry leaders who will be assisting.)

4th Hardware Startup Meetup

  • Date: Monday, November 12, 2012
  • Time: 7:00 PM To 9:30 PM
  • Venue: NYU Poly Varick Street Incubator
  • Address: 137 Varick Street, 2nd floor, New York, NY
  • Price: $5.00/per person

It’s time for the next hardware startup meetup (sorry for the long time in coming), and we’re being hosted by NYU Poly’s awesome incubator on Varick street. As usual, we’ll have some pretty phenomenal speakers and some great startups pitching.

As you may know, Mayor Bloomberg and the EDC just launched a prototyping competition, where 6 lucky winning teams will get money, space, access to sponsored manufacturing and mentorship to accelerate to market. The press release is here. We’ll have Alison Hodgson and Miquela Craytor from the EDC explain the competition and take any questions.

On a similar note, Ben Einstein will be presenting Bolt, a new hardware accelerator to start in Boston. And we’ll have 2 amazing startup companies pitch.
