San Diego’s MEGA Startup Weekend took place at the new San Diego Central Public Library in November.
This was the first event tackling hardware as well as software innovation. The MEGA SW blended entrepreneurial skills in web and mobile software development with new means of making: 3D printing, robotics, hackable hardware, and more. The venue was decked out with tools from laser cutters to soldering irons, small computers and smart sensors. The event in San Diego was also part of Global Startup Battle, a competition to inspire the entrepreneurs around the globe.
