[YS Meetup] How to build hardware startups from India

Let’s admit it. Hardware is tough. Hardware has no set benchmarks (at least in India). Hardware requires you to put metal and wires together.  And putting together a team to make a real tangible hardware product is difficult.

But it’s 2014. Hardware is back. And ‘Hardware is Sexy’.

We, at YourStory have been noticing some very good hardware startups emerging from India. To list a few: Grey Orange Robotics, Wello, Ezetap, CarIQ, GetActive, CarIQ, GoQii, Lumos, Brahma3 and many more. We believe that this hardware revolution in India is here to stay. But discussions need to happen. And what better way to do that than bringing these people together.

YS Hardware Meetup

We invite all startuppers, founders, CEOs, techies, hardware geeks and anyone who has an interest in hardware and tech, to come together and share their big and small successes, failures, challenges and everyday aspirations in building hardware startups from India.

The team from DosaMatic – the world’s first automatic tabletop dosa-making machine, will be there to share their insights from building and manufacturing a completely ‘desi’, Made-in-India product.
