Event Details

In the age of "capital efficient" Web startups, who's innovating the next generation of hardware devices that capitalize on cloud services and deliver new freedoms and functionalities to consumers and businesses?  Two factors challenge the hardware startup:  an anti-hardware bias of many mainstream investors and a derth of U.S.-based prototyping and manufacturing facilities.    Is hardware innovation destined to be left to the big guys and moved off shore?  

The best-selling author of 23 original computer software titles, including the Where in the World is Carmen SanDeigo series, Lauren Elliot has been building technology businesses for more than 25 years.  He has founded seven startups in the media and Internet space, and has most recently turned his attention of hardware with his latest venture, SeePort, a cloud-based social vidoephone company.

In building this new company, Lauren is rethinking the dynamics of starting and building a hardware-centric business.  Join him for this lunch-time Founders' Forum conversation exploring the future of hardware startups and the challenge of hardware creation in the United States.

This brown-bag lunchtime conversation is limited to  20.  Beverages will be provided.
