April 6, 2015 | By | No Comments

In ThingsCon related news, over at Imperica, Matt Muir has interviewed our friend and keynote speaker Warren Ellis (see all speakers) as he’s getting ready for his trip to ThingsCon. They chatted about #iot, connected products, and all the fun ways they can fail:

Joining the Highway1 Ambassador Program

March 25, 2015 | By |

Highway1 is one of the best hardware accelerators out there. Part of global producat development and supply chain PCH, Highway1 is focused on early seed stage hardware startups helping them develop their idea from prototype to manufacturable, scalable product.

I’m happy to announce that the good folks over at Highway1 kindly asked me to join as an ambassador alongside an great group of inspiring people. Needless to say, I’ll be keeping my eyes open primarily for European startups that might stand to profit from working with Highway1. It’s a great way to help hardware startups get faster from idea to market.

Full disclosure: Highway1 has in the past sponsored and otherwise supported events of mine, like ThingsCon.
