Thursday, March 23: HardTech Summit

The HardTech Summit, evolving from mHUB's annual Product Showcase and Demo Day, gathers regional stakeholders in technology, manufacturing, government, and economic development to discuss the state of US innovation around physical product development and related industries. The day includes remarks from state and city officials, conversations between corporate and institutional research leaders, and a keynote from a thought-provoking founder or leader in hardtech. Alongside its program of speakers, this event showcases startups leading in healthcare, advanced manufacturing, and climate and energy, giving them the stage to pitch and share their solutions. The Fourth Revolution Awards winners will also be announced during the event.

Concurrent with the event’s stage program, mHUB opens its prototyping labs for all startup members to demo their products to attendees. Over 50 startups display and introduce their technology in an exhibition-style portion of the program. Visitors can chat with founders and test products within mHUB’s core facility for product development.
