Going back to the roots of the Silicon Forest: Hardware renaissance sparks electronic systems pitch competition
While there are any number of amazing things happening in the Portland startup scene with Web and mobile, the glimmers of a hardware renaissance are upon us. And that harkens back to the days that when the Silicon Forest garnered its moniker.
The Silicon Forest isn’t just about web and mobile apps – it’s about building electronic systems too. If you’re working on a startup that requires designing and building an electronic system, here’s a chance to get some exposure, and perhaps win some prize money.
What’s at stake? $1,000 being put up by OTBC and electronics manufacturing company Axiom Electronics – and some valuable feedback on your technology approach and your business model.
