Event Description

Join us for a very special edition of Hardware Massive Shenzhen before Chinese New Year. We have industry experts from the 4 main stages of a hardware startup (development, funding, manufacturing, marketing) who will give in-depth advice to 3 local hardware startups. 

This will be a great chance for everyone to learn from the leading industry leaders in what to do (and not do) in the various stages of a startup.
