About the meetup
Hardware community gathering “Building a hardware business: success stories and new ideas" 24-25 November in Druskininkai & online.
The hardware business context has always been challenging, and it's not getting any easier now: scalability, sustainability, design, infrastructure, and much more are needed to keep up with trends, budget and time.
The main idea of the meetup for our Hardware Ecosystem Community, organized by Bridgio Tech Accelerator & Tech Zity with the support of Independent Design House & Electronics Manufacturing Service DANNIE.CC is to discover the challenges of building a hardware business today by covering two aspects:
executives of successful hardware companies will share their insights and experiences.

Having helped create over a hundred new products, some of which have failed and some have sold millions of copies, we've formulated a few principles that help increase the chances of success for new developments.
Our five principles for new product development
About Sintecs: key facts, expertise, projects; mixed business model: outsourcing various HW services, own products; distributorship of Siemens EDA, software for engineers; flexible in operations; targeted sales; quality and security as key values
Success stories: Sintecs success insights
Science Institute; long-term results/ personal challenges in startup company/ Automotive B2B business from top to bottom; rebranding and new ways to design the product/ RnD house from scratch; unique expertise/ demanding B2B clients – the way to improve product quality/ success story during the components crisis.
My way from science to business – insights and learned lessons

A deep-dive into the battery-swapping drone docking station DBOX
Challenges of coupling light from laser diodes to optical fibers and to photodiodes.
Capturing light to fiber
AISPECO manufactures sensor controllers, which are then put in highly hazardous environments - helicopters, airplanes and cars. Through the development of our startup we have started with fully outsourced hardware team, which seemed to be great idea at first (and still is), but there are some unique attributes which need to be taken into account if you plan to replicate it. We will share our story of great times and bad.
