This event is free, but you must register on the main event page at Hardware Massive to attend: https://hardwaremassive.com/events/2018/07/lean-startup-hardware-learnings-and-mistakes Ever wondered why so many hardware startups start brilliantly and look promising but end up failing? If you're looking to start your own hardware startup or are working on one, come meet our speakers who will talk about their experiences in launching ventures! Andrew and Heidi will cover their journeys from the leadership and design perspectives, respectively. It will be moderated by Amal, whose startup mistakes motivated him to organize this event. Speakers:

Andrew Ippoliti

Andrew is a software engineer with a Master's Degree in Electrical Engineering. He currently leads the development of desktop circuit board fabrication machines at BotFactory. Before he caught the entrepreneurial bug at BotFactory, he was a hardware designer for IBM. He is involved in some open source projects that span from graphics and games to devices that promote good mental health and hygiene. Talk Summary:

Andrew will be sharing his experience of being on the core team of a hardware startup for the past 5 years. He will share what they did wrong, what they learned and a few things that they didn't do too badly. Heidi Farrell

Heidi is a freelance design engineer who has led projects at startups and design firms in San Francisco, Stockholm and New York. Most recently, Heidi was a Senior Mechanical Engineer at Ringly, where she designed & manufactured smart jewelry, and a Senior Design Engineer at Smart Design, where she designed dozens of home goods for OXO. She is currently consulting with several NY hardware startups, including supporting the launch of the new Peloton treadmill. Heidi has a BS degree in Product Design from Stanford and lives in Brooklyn. Talk Summary:

It's shocking how few startups do user research well -- if at all -- yet it's absolutely critical to developing good hardware. In this talk, I'll share how I've borrowed techniques from Stanford's d.school and Smart's human-centered design practices to bring multidisciplinary teams into alignment and drive ambiguous projects forward.
