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.

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.

What does this mean for makers? Maker businesses? Companies in the maker space? More on that soon – we’ll be talking about this on MakerBusiness on Adafruitdaily.com !


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.
