Avnet Acquires Hackster, Focuses on Hardware Startups.

The combination of Hackster.io with Avnet’s recently launched MakerSource resource directory and acquisition of Premier Farnell’s element 14 community will allow start-ups to design and create new ideas, then quickly find the resources to support them as they prepare to take their product to market.

Read more on MAKE and Business Wire.


Kicking off Maker Business Monday! Avent now has the element 14 community as well as hackster.io. Back in October Avent announced element 14 (Premier Farnell). Hackaday (and Tindie) was acquired by SupplyFrame, and a looooong time ago Instructables was acquired by AutoDesk.

IT’S A MAKER ROLL UP YA’LL.
