Event Details

Join the Accelerator Centre and product development leaders from across the region for this event series on DFx methodologies featuring lessons learned from the founders who have been there before. 

With an increased demand for IoT devices, there is a new wave of hardware startups coming to the Region of Waterloo. Historically, designing a product for manufacturability, durability, safety, and usability was a significant challenge for hardware companies – proper procedure and best practices came far too late in the process and resulted in lost time and money.

Join us for a single session, or register for the full series of pannel discussions.
