•Speaker #1: Florian Simmendinger - CEO & Founder of Soundbrenner
Topic: "How to Get from 0 to 1: Starting a Hardware Company from Idea to Manufacturing"

Soundbrenner builds a platform that empowers musicians to master rhythm better and faster than ever before. At the heart of this platform is the Soundbrenner Pulse, a smart vibrating metronome. It's the world’s first wearable device for musicians. With it, musicians no longer have to listen to the rhythm, for the first time they can actually feel the rhythm as they play music. The Soundbrenner Pulse works hand in hand with our mobile app for iOS and Android as well as our DAW plugin for desktop computers.

Florian will discuss the goal of creating & validating a compelling product concept, and figuring out how to sell it, and the key ingredients & requirements in your hardware startup. You need to be good at following the 20/80 rule and staying focused. It's not about passion, its about determination!

•Speaker #2: Nick Zieber - Strategic Partnerships Manager at WHub
Talk Topic: "Discovering Hong Kong Startups"
