Author: Nikolina Zeljko | Category: Events | Posted: 16.10.2015
Our Hardware Startups event is getting closer (Oct 29), and thus we have more information for you. If you want to learn how to run and organize your own hardware startup, then you definitely shouldn't miss this event. First, we want to brag a little with our keynote speakers, and we really gathered a great team from all areas related to hardware startups. After the event official opening, a representative of Microsoft BiH, Admir Tuzovic, will present the ways that Microsoft technology can be used to launch HW startup. If you regularly follow SPARK, then you are already familiar with the work of our startup NHome, whose team member and web developer Ivan Filipovic will share what his average day at SPARK looks like. Next on the schedule is our guest from Estonia, Alexander Tõnnisson, founder of hardware startup accelerator BuildIt. Stevica Kuharski from Croatia will share his experience with robotics, as he’s the one who developed first Croatian home robot Alamo (Ombotics). We will end this event with a panel discussion on the topic “Hardware Compared to Software Startups”, and other than keynote speakers, the discussion will be attended by representatives of IT faculties in Mostar Emina Junuz (FIT) and Tomislav Volarić (FPMOZ).
