Description

iHola Barcelona! We are excited to announce our very first Hardware Massive event in Barcelona, with featured speaker Cecilia Tham.

Cecilia is the founder & director of MOB - Makers of Barcelona, a collaborative community and facility for the innovative, creative, and entrepreneurial in Barcelona. She is also the founder of FabCafe Barcelona, a new concept coffee shop that combines an innovative use for digital fabrication tools such as laser cutters, 3D printers, and plotters, in an everyday environment such as the coffee shop. www.mob-barcelona.com

Cecilia's talk will be about the current Hardware Revolution. She will discuss how low-cost technology and the open source/hardware movement is creating a paradigm shift that is allowing us individuals to innovate at a rate never before seen in history.

There will also be an opening remark from Greg Fisher, the founder of Hardware Massive, who is flying in from San Francisco for the event. Greg Fisher is the CEO of Berkeley Sourcing Group, a turnkey manufacturing services provider for small businesses manufacturing overseas. He has worked with over 600 customers during that time and had the privilege to learn first hand what works (and what doesn't!) when it comes to small businesses taking new products to market and how to manage the manufacturing relationships and processes in China. www.berkeleysg.com
