The Hardware Startup Weekend is a 54-hour event where developers, designers, marketers, product managers and startup enthusiasts come together to share ideas, form teams, build products and launch startups.The unique aspect of this event is giving participants the opportunity to engage with a wide variety of cutting-edge prototyping technologies to be able to develop physical products with 54-hours.
The event will kick off with a networking session followed by a pitching session, a popular voting session and a team creation session, all of which will take place on a Friday afternoon. The assembled teams will then have until Sunday afternoon to research, validate and prototype their ideas before pitching them in front of a panel of judges.
During the weekend, a range of mentors will be available to provide ongoing advice and assistance to the teams. Following the final pitches, the best teams will be presented with awards and prizes.
This is a great opportunity to meet new people, develop ideas and learn about the startup ecosystem!
