• Next #TindieChat on May 2 : Crowd Funding

    Tindie4 days ago 1 comment

    Tuesday May 2nd @ 1pm PST. Join this project to take part.

    Some sellers test their ideas on Tindie and build up to doing a crowd funding campaign, or complete a campaign and then come over to Tindie to sell excess inventory or second runs. Either way, there's a lot of great options for bringing your project to market.

    We've got @Zach Dunham joining us for May's TindieChat. He's the Design & Technology Outreach Lead at Kickstarter and has a background in hardware and audio arts. He'd love to hear your experiences and can answer any questions that you might have about launching a campaign.

    Also, @Jasmine Brackett from Tindie will be the host and can also provide advice for anyone wondering what to do after their campaigns and selling on TIndie.

    Maybe you've had an incredibly successful campaign and have advice for others? We'd love to hear your tips in this TIndieChat!

    You can post questions in advance on this doc. They can be for Zach, the Tindie Team, or the community in general.


  • Hardware meetup in Nottingham, UK - 14th March

    Tindie seller @Spencer is starting a monthly meetup in Nottingham. We're sure it will be a fantastic opportunity for hardware entrepreneurs and maker types in the area to share ideas over a beer or two.

    What: Nottingham Hardware Meetup

    Where: Malt Cross, 16 Saint James's Street, Nottingham

    When: Tue, March 14, 2017. 7:30 PM – 10:30 PM GMT

    Register here:

    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/nottinghams-first-monthly-hardware-meetup-tickets-32241135103

    Description from the eventbrite page:

    • Are you an independant electronics engineer?
    • Do you listen to The Amp Hour podcast?
    • Have you got an amusing story about getting the wrong components from China?
    • Do you have an opion about which is the best PCB fab house?
    • Have you ever sold anything on Tindie?

    If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then why not come along to Nottinghams first Monthly Hardware Meetup on 14th March at the Malt Cross! Bring along your favorite project/hack/kit, some interesting stories that non-hardware types find boring, and a few quid for some of the awesome real ales that the Malt Cross has to offer.

    We've got an upstairs section of this wonderful Victorian Music Hall reserved from 7:30pm, so grab yourself a pint and wander up. You might also want to check out the fantastic menu too.

    The event is completely free to attend (excluding beer or food!), but I've chosen to list it on Eventbrite so that I've got an idea of how many people to expect, and also putting all this info in a 140 character tweet is just not going to work out well!
