Event description

Description

We are excited to announce our final meetup of the year at Haymarket HQ! There will be a focus on Asia, and how strengthening ties with our close neighbours can be beneficial for hardware startups.
During the night we will:

- Hear from Forcite Helmet Systems and Tekuma, two hardware startups, find out about their product and how an engagement with Asia has been advantageous

- Hear from Haymarket HQ, a not-for-profit startup hub that supports entrepreneurs who want to grow into Asia and the Shenzen Economic Trade Office, an Australian based free business service provider representing the city of Shenzen.

- Engage in a networking session after talks, where you can have some drinks, pizza and get to know fellow hardware and deep tech entrepreneurs.

Boyadgis has raised two seed investments totaling $1.1 million from angel groups in Australia and the U.S.


Michael Griffin and Annette McClelland - Tekuma

Michael Griffin & Annette McClelland are the techie & hustler of drone controller startup, Tekuma. Tekuma is developing a one-handed controller for drones that frees up the other hand to focus on the peripheral (usually the camera). Their controller reduces the time, cost & personnel required to fly. It is intuitive, robust & universal. Tekuma went through the UTS:Hatchery+ (Accelerate) program last year and have spent most of 2017 in China doing innovation/entrepreneurship tours, tradeshows, and factory visits. Last week they came back to Sydney after appearing on 'The Next Unicorn' in Shanghai (a Chinese reality TV show compared to Shark Tank vs The Apprentice).
