Description

We’re pleased to announce 3 outstanding speakers for a special event around everything hardware! Check out the lineup and see you there ;)


“How to create an automative company from nothing” by Mathieu Caudal, Co-Founder & Growth at UNU

How do you build something as ambitious as electric scooter when you have 0 money and experience? That’s what the guys from UNU did, head first and without second thoughts. Their co-founder Mathieu argues there’s actually a beauty to starting with very little, and he'll tell you why ;)

He’ll also discuss their decision to work with China for material sourcing, sharing the pros and cons that every hardware startup should keep in mind when faced with this choice.


"Raising a seed for hardware startups” by Alexis Houssou, Founder of Hardware Club

Raising seed money isn’t exactly rocket science - but don’t make your first round your last. How you do it can make the difference between a thriving company and a dead one in the long-run! Alexis will explain how to raise sustainably despite the particular challenges faced by hardware startups.

Former entrepreneur and financier, Alexis started Hardware Club in 2015 with a mission to support the best hardware startups worldwide using collaboration and network effects. Through its unique $30M community-based fund, Hardware Club invests in hardware startups in Europe and in the US at seed stage.

10 things I would tell myself starting off" by Tobias Eichenwald, CEO & Co-Founder of Senic

Senic set out on a mission to change our interaction with technology. This means building products that work invisibly in the background to make your everyday life easier. A simple goal, but a complex undertaking for the young Berlin team.

In this talk, Tobias looks back on the early days of Senic and lessons learned. From attending the YCombinator program to launching their first product Nuimo on Indiegogo, come hear their story from the inside!

We’re a long-term strategic investor that empowers entrepreneurs through education, services, and capital. Founded 4 years ago in France, we now have a portfolio of 600 startups. Raised €400M collectively for them so far. You may know some of them, like Algolia, Side.co, CaptainTrain, Star Of Service. And now we’ve also in London and Berlin!

The good thing about Berlin is that no other place in Europe combines the 3 main ingredients so well:
(1) talented entrepreneurs, developers & designers from eastern, southern and northern Europe
(2) a vibrant and easygoing lifestyle - way cheaper than London, way more open than Paris!
(3) a cosmopolitan and welcoming city that lets you feel like you’re part of it, even if you weren’t born here.

See you around!
