Join us for a night of discussions and demos about creative technology, with speakers from Grand St., Vers Audio and the Zahn Center. So much is changing in the world of hardware craftsmanship, and on June 6 we will explore the ongoing changes in creating new hardware and will touch on everything from prototyping to distribution, with three talks and plenty of time for Q+A and demos.
Grand St. (Amanda Peyton)
Grand St. is a new market and community for well-crafted personal technology. Their belief that a new era in electronics requires a new kind of store led them to creating an exciting market for creative technology. Having recently raised $1.3 million in venture financing, Grand St. is on their way to becoming the the crowd favorite one-stop shopping destination for all electronics wares.
Vers Audio (David Laituri)
Design, sustainability, and performance. Vers Audio is one of those rare companies that set out with a great mission and then followed through. Their goal is to create beautiful, well designed audio equipment without compromising on sound quality while putting sustainability at the forefront of their process. And if you think that sustainable wood, high fidelity audio and attention to design are enough, they go even further. They use screws instead of adhesives to add to the reusability and sustainability of their products and all of their packaging is made from recyclable materials.
