I want to enter an accelerator program from Cisco for innovative hardware venture.
There are some fantastic sites that you should review.
Create your business profiles and clearly define what you're looking for. Share your background and your passion.
Couple years ago I had a product Idea related to Timer module with LCD display for food industry...
Being a software gut I knew squat about hardware...
Couple years later I saw similar products make big bucks in market..
Like mentioned in the previous comment, you can get in touch with cofounders online..
- Go to hardware meetups
- Checkout school projects and DYI projects and reach out to them if they are interested
- Find passionate people on Quora or blogs who has SME on the topic.
I have my own vetting framework I use to find people to work with..
If you are based of big cities, it is much easy to find the people. It is more important to find the right people. Attitude matters more than skill :-)
Let me know if you wish to talk !
Hi, I'm a scientist, engineer, founder, and advisor of several tech startups. You should look up local universities and email their CS/EEE programs. You could even possibly go there in person and put up a sign on a bulletin board. Alternatively, look up local 'hacker' / maker spaces that may exist in your area (see here: https://wiki.hackerspaces.org/List_of_Hacker_Spaces). There may also be Meetups in your area on CS/EEE topics, go there and network with attendees (www.meetup.com). If you'd like further advice I'd be happy to talk with you.
