INNOVATION TOURS

We take hardware innovators, engineers, and entrepreneurs on curated, immersive tours designed to demystify manufacturing and the hardware supply chain by providing insights into what it takes to design and deliver a hardware product at scale. 

 

We visit hardware innovation ecosystem hotspots to build connections, encounter new ideas, explore possibilities and take advantage of expert knowledge, with the aim of demystifying manufacturing to help hardware innovators gain the tools, networks, and confidence needed to build their hardware supply chain.
