There is no “i” in team and there definitely isn’t an “i” in hardware. Hardware startups thrive because of team chemistry and deep skills across many disciplines. Your first ten hires must excel in at least seven disparate yet interconnected functions. As a hardware founder, you need a team that brings experience, different backgrounds, and radical transparency to help you succeed. That’s us; each of us has helped build startups and successful hardware products. We share your drive to change the world. We think like engineers because we are engineers and we are hardwired for hardware.
