WARNING: This is a Ship article about a Startup Pirates event. Seafaring references and metaphors will be all over it. Proceed at your own peril and try not to get sea sick.
It gathers experienced seamen with backgrounds in Design, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics or Computer Science, or pirates who just have ideas to create unique hardware products. They will be together from 12 to 19 December at the Startup Campus (Rua Rodrigo da Fonseca, 11, Lisbon)!
The focus will be in projects for the following seas: Industry and Robotics, Telecommunications and IoT, Wearables, Energy and Transportation and, last but not least, Security and Defense.
It will be a week-long intensive bootcamp with talks about several topics: entrepreneurship, prototyping, specialized workshops in 3d printing and micro-controllers and mentoring sessions.
And if you want to see the cool stuff that comes out of this event we invite you all to join us and experience the Demo Day on December 19. We will be able to watch the team’s presentations about the projects they’re developing and maybe even see some cool prototypes! 😉
The Demo Day will start at 14h and will be held at Microsoft Portugal headquarters.
Make sure you follow us on Twitter as we will be showing you a sneak peak of the projects during the next week. We will also be live tweeting the Demo Day on Saturday, December 19.
Your trip through the never sailed seas of hardware starts here! – Their words, not ours.
But we could have written that as well, easily. 😉
