Are you developing a hardware product and facing some challenges? Are you interested in how to get to the first prototype and later to the first production line? Wondering what are the most common mistakes in hardware product development? Wondering how to get investors and reduce the initial capital? Find out all this and more at the 2nd HardwareSTART informal Hardware Community meeting.


Usually, the first thing that happens is the idea, then the enthusiasm and the first step towards entrepreneurship - product development, which can be very difficult.


To make product development in your business faster, with fewer complications and the right help, attend a free seminar to find out:

  • What are the most common mistakes in hardware product development.
  • How to get to the first prototype and later to the first production line.
  • Which support environments can help you develop your product and how to access them.
  • How to reduce your initial investment and how to get to the first machines.
  • How to access investors and when you really need them.
  • General advice, contacts and guidance.


All questions will be answered by Jernej Ženko, CTO of Katapult and founder of the startup GridTech, where they have successfully developed and are already successfully selling the ElderOn adaptive security system for optimising care in nursing homes.
