Manufacturing can be one of the greatest challenges that any hardware startup encounters on their journey. That's why we are dedicating an entire evening covering three different aspects and approaches that are a must consider for anyone interested in or currently working on a hardware project!

For this event we are bringing in three experienced and exciting companies including a global network of 3D printing service providers, the industries 'go-to' for fast prototyping and low volume production as well as agile manufacturing experts.

Join us at Base King's Cross for a night full of free beer, pizza and hundreds of hardware enthusiasts!
