HAX at IFA 2017

HAX is at IFA 2017 in Berlin this year with 20 of it’s alumni teams from the Seed Stage Program and the Growth Stage Program. IFA is a great opportunity for our teams to explore the European market as they continue to expand their global reach. However, as it is a region composed of many countries with their own languages and laws, the EU can be a difficult market to enter and navigate for international teams not familiar with the local landscapes. For this, we’ve spent the past 5 days meeting with retail partners, distributors, and investors from all over Europe!

HAX also hosted a happy hour in downtown Berlin with Kickstarter and German Hardware Startups. It was a great opportunity to make connections with the hardware community all over the world and enjoy a night on the town together! We’ve had a super successful conference so far and are ready to see our teams and their products spread throughout Europe!

Team Updates:

Secope (S-9) has a new Italian customer, which purchased 1K units of their connected breathalyzer.
