The Accelerators #makerbusinessmonday #makerbusiness
The Accelerators. There’s a new blog at WSJ about startups/enterpreneurship. One of the writers is Joanne Wilson, a leader in New York angel investment and friend to Ayah Bdeir! There’s lots of great stuff there including screencasts, Q&A, etc.
For people who are starting a business, or just thinking about starting a business, The Accelerators is anchored by contributions from a diverse group of mentors– successful entrepreneurs, angel investors and venture capitalists, and technology and business experts. The mentors will address a different question each week.
Each week on the Adafruit blog we post up about amazing companies, people and articles about being a MAKER and a business. Over the years we’ve shared how we run Adafruit, published code from our shopping cart system and given presentations on running an open-source hardware company. Every Monday we’re going to try to collect some of these resources and tag them #makerbusinessmonday & #makerbusiness they’re in our popular Maker Business category as well, enjoy!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
