Bre Pettis Joins Speaker Roster at Hardware Innovation Workshop in New York

SEBASTOPOL, CA -- (Marketwired) -- Aug 27, 2013 -- Bre Pettis, CEO and founder of MakerBot® joins an all-star lineup of speakers for the MAKE Hardware Innovation Workshop on September 18 in Queens, NY. Boasting a distinctly east coast flavor, the New York version of the popular maker pro event will add an industrial design session to the agenda, feature investors from New York and New England venture firms, as well as local hardware startups and early stage products.

"Hosting this event in New York gives us an opportunity to frame it from the perspective of the maker pro ecosystem that is firmly establishing itself across the boroughs from Manhattan to Brooklyn to Queens," said Dale Dougherty, CEO and founder of Maker Media, and publisher of MAKE magazine. "Having Bre join us underscores the role that 3D printing has played in dominating the landscape here, and creating an epicenter for maker tools and technology innovation."

Held at the New York Hall of Science (site of World Maker Faire the following weekend), the one-day event will again focus on the business of making, featuring innovative hardware products and startups, and the companies and services that constitute a growing ecosystem for getting products made and to market.

Over thirty speakers with expertise in digital fabrication and manufacturing, 3D printing, and industrial design will share the stage during the course of the day. Sessions will also feature leading firms from the investment world who focus on hardware innovation, as well as individuals from incubators and accelerators who specialize in startups with early-stage hardware products and devices.

Themes and topics for the Workshop include:

  • The Evolution of Microcontrollers as Development Platforms
  • The Year of the Sensor
  • The Design Advantage
  • Trends in 3D Printing
  • Maker To Market
  • The Hardware VCs Invest in and Why
  • Case Studies in Success
