Description

Manufacturing and selling hardware is a proven business practice but proprietary is the default setting. However, there are distinct advantages to open sourcing hardware destined for sale and distribution.

This session will discuss those advantages on a level playing field with the risks. It will also cover methods for leveraging the community to turn consumers into collaborative product development partners. Embracing open source hardware as a business can be a powerful driver for success.

Presented live at FITC Amsterdam 2014 on Feb 24-25, 2014
