Not Everyone Can Be A Platform #makerbusiness

Not Everyone Can Be A Platform by Marc Barros.

I had the chance to attend the Hardware Innovations Workshop a few weeks back. It was both an eye opening and inspiring experience, reminding me that when I started Contour nine years ago, none of this community existed. The resources available now are unreal, enabling makers to bring new products to market faster and with less risk.

Despite all of this I left the event concerned.

I probably listened to six or seven companies and although each of them had a different focus there was a theme that didn’t change. Every one of them wanted to be a platform.
