Silicon Vikings: Women in Wearables



  • Women in Wearables:
    An evening dedicated to the innovative work of women in hardware and the wearable technology industry.

    Please join us on March 5th at StartupHouse in San Francisco as we showcase the work of 4 women making a statement in the wearable market.

    Wearables are rapidly evolving from single-function, hard-to-connect, dumb devices to what we believe will be increasingly become multifunction, always-connected, smart/aware devices. The market for such technology — including smartwatches, fitness monitors, shoes and headsets — could according to the experts jump tenfold to as much as $50 billion in the next two to three years.

    This will be a relaxed, casual and informative evening for sharing experiences. The presentations will be about how the speakers faced challenges and overcame them. They will share insights about working in the industry and each will give a forecast for the future of the wearable industry. After sharing their experiences the speakers will then all join a panel that will be open for questions from the moderator and the audience.

    The event is hosted by StartupHouse. They offer a shared-desk workspace for entrepreneurs, early stage startups and their teams. StartupHouse is located at 934 Howard St San Francisco, right at the intersection of Mary St that we share with TechShop and Tempest Bar. The building used to be the headquarters of Good Vibrations, so we like to think we are continuing on with making some Good Vibes.
