Join Invest Southwest for its Improving Investability Workshop-How to Position your Hardware Startup to Scale, presented by Avnet. According to the Startup Genome Project, 70% of startups fail due to premature scaling, which means spending money on non-essential aspects of their business including infrastructure, hiring a large workforce, buying too much inventory, large marketing campaigns, perfecting a product, etc. Expert guest speakers and panel members will review the current market for hardware startups, how to improve the chances of success and funding, as well as how to overcome potential supply chain challenges and solutions. Following the workshop, there will be an optional brief showing of the planetarium.
