Building a VC-investable Hardware Startup
Wednesday, May 13, 1:50 pm to 2:10 pm in Theater
Building a hardware start-up is hard, and building interest from investors is even harder. While many companies launch new products on Kickstarter or Indiegogo, few go on to raise VC money and build rapidly growing business. Avidan Ross runs Lion Wells Capital, the only early-stage venture fund focused solely on hardware start-ups and connected devices. Join Avidan and Zach Supalla (CEO of Spark IO, one of Lion Wells Capital’s portfolio companies) as they discuss Avidan’s investment thesis and the characteristics necessary to build a hardware start-up that appeals to investors.
