We'll be hacking at the AS220 Labs, a hackerspace where tools, technology and inspiration abound. With no less than 10 top quality watering holes within spitting distance, power breaks and refueling will be done in Providence style (that is, deliciously).
Never played with the Netduino? This open source electronics platform uses the .NET Micro Framework and features a 32-bit micro controller and a rich development environment that's fully open to users. Use the design files and sample projects to learn and be inspired, then remix 'em until you get what you want, how you want it.
Need more? Kippkitts will be on hand as a sponsor to provide their open source hardware kits for the hackathon. Kippkitts enable devices to heat, cool, measure, move, and control things around you. KippKitts products currently include low-voltage, high-efficiency vapor cycle heat pumps, remote controlled battery powered solenoids, high-power PID servo actuators, and Netduino compatible shields for motor control, temperature management, lighting control, wireless interfaces, among other cool things.
Come get your geek on. Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
When & Where
RevUp by Betaspring is the first accelerator for “revenue-first” companies–ventures where growth through revenue is the primary goal. RevUp companies receive $75,000 in growth capital and immersion in a three-month program focused on accelerating customer acquisition and revenue. Unlike most accelerators, RevUp does not take equity. Instead, companies return the investment as a percentage of revenue over a 36-month period.
RevUp builds on Betaspring’s history and experience accelerating 90 companies and managing a portfolio that’s raised $50MM in follow-on funding.
