This month, the San Francisco Internet of Things Meetup event will feature three amazing IoT product success stories - the Pebble Smart Watch, the August Smart Lock, and the Misfit Shine!
During the panel interview we'll hear Kristen Culp (Pebble's VP of Operations), Jason Johnson (August's CEO), and Mo Abdoolcarim -(Misfit Wearable's Software Products Lead) talk about their behind-the-scenes stories in taking IoT products from concepts, through crowd-funding campaigns and to the hands of their eager fans. The discussion will cover strategies for running successful crowd-funding campaigns, challenges in scaling manufacturing and distribution strategies post crowd-funding.
We are super excited, and think it will be a great opportunity for aspiring hardware startups to know more about getting a product into the hands of the consumers. Join us to learn from these two highly talked-about companies in the IoT space!
