About this Event

The Calgary Innovation Coalition (CIC), SAIT, Fuse 33 and Protospace are looking to support "HardTech" (an accumulation of different complex mechanical, electronic, or electrical technologies to form an innovative physical product with capability for exponential growth and market uptake) Startups with their development and testing of their product ideas. "HardTech" startups face different challenges compared to their software counterparts to bring an idea to market. The Make it Lunch Series aims to connect those in the ecosystem that need support with those with experience to share. Join us each month as we cover different topics from market and customer discovery, basic fabrication techniques, design, prototyping, testing, manufacturing, and more. Every session will have open time for discussion and networking for anyone that either needs support or has support to offer.
