Startups that pursue hardware solutions to humanity’s big challenges face significant barriers of entry of their own. This event brings together thought-leaders, incubator mentors and start-ups who have walked this path to discuss how to prototype your robot, where to get tooling and expertise and who ask for help. It sets the foundations for a network of maker-spaces, incubators and startups who are going the hardware route to deliver transformative impact.

This event follows directly on from Calm Before The Swarm and joint tickets are available here.
