Hardware Hacking: From DIY to Revenue

Everyone talks about software, so this panel will look at how to launch a HARDWARE company. Conventional wisdom is that hardware is hard, but there's a growing community of makers turning their ideas into businesses, and a proliferation of resources to help them do it. Panel experts will discuss their experience at each step of the process, from initial idea to fundraising to taking the product to market.
