New Lab, the 84,000-square-foot Navy Yard facility that’s aiming to become a hardware hub, just opened this summer and here’s one of its first offerings: a crash course in building your own hardware company.
Seattle-based Hardware Workshop will be holding a session at New Lab on September 29 and 30. The two-day workshop is geared toward founders who want to turn their ideas into actual hardware products. One panel during the workshop includes a heavyweight lineup of maker entrepreneurs, including Adafruit founder Limor “Ladyada” Fried, Boxee cofounder Idan Cohen and R/GA’s former vice president of product innovation Jeff Mancini.
The workshop costs $75. In addition to 12 hours of instruction, it includes breakfast and lunch on both days, as well as a closing happy hour. Those interested in participating must first apply on Hardware Workshop’s site.Read Complete Article
