You have a hardware idea and want to build a startup around it. You know some of the initial steps you need to take, but surely there are more details you might not be aware of. What are the things to prioritize in the beginning versus later on? When is the right time to grow your team? Are patents right for you? What should you expect when it comes to fundraising vs. bootstrapping? How do you define success? This workshop is designed to intimately discuss all the gory details of building a hardware-focused startup, pitfalls to avoid, strategies to pursue, how to assess the growth metrics, and much more. The topic segments will include Legal & IP, Finance & Fundraising, HR, Sales, Manufacturing, Regulations, Logistics, Marketing, and Expectations.
