DescriptionWe have a special treat this month as we host leading experts and veterans for a panel discussion about the plan and execution for hardware startups.
One of the biggest challenges hardware innovation faces is making sure you've created a plan that covers all the important details and with the right timeline. For a market with little room for error, unknown unknowns that cause delays, quality issues, or simply waste precious cash can quickly sink your business. In our discussion we'll discuss what the plan for new product introduction should consider, tools and tips to execute effectively, common mistakes, and secret nuggets of wisdom that can make all the difference.
Please join us to hear from our international thought leaders on the subject, meet potential partners, and get your questions answered.
