Description: For the last decade, investors, media, and those who follow technology have been focused almost entirely on software. More recently, the buzz has shifted from software to hardware and manufactured products. Ilana Diamond will discuss why Pittsburgh businesses are perfectly positioned to take advantage of the renewed interest in physical products, how small businesses & manufacturers can get involved, and what resources are available to help physical product founders get their products from idea to market.
