"HWTrek Asia Innovation Tour brought us out of our comfort zone which was needed to put all the supply chain into a perspective. This Tour is a must thing for a hardware entrepreneur who really wants to scale up."
"It was great getting to see some high end and top tier manufacturers and suppliers, for young companies like us, it was really hard to get noticed by them in the first place."
"There are so many companies that provide specialty services or total solution services, and it’s nearly impossible to understand how it all fits together from your desk at home. This Tour helped me understand all the key steps, how companies divide their expertise/services, and where options exist to specialize or combine services as needed."
"The factory visits were very informative. To understand exactly how our stuff is made and what we can do on our side to make manufacturing and the relationship with our manufacturers flow effortlessly. The Meetups are very useful and making it much easier to have our parts sourced. Also, the contact with other Creators has been very enlightening. Most of us face similar issues and the space to exchange information and ideas has been really useful for us."
"This is the the second time we’ve attended a HWTrek Meetup event. The last event was a success with over a thousand attendees and many overseas business opportunities. As soon as I heard that there’s a new HWTrek event, I immediately signed up. Talking to these companies gave us a lot of inspiration for the projects we’re working on and a glimpse of future industry trends to incorporate into our business strategy planning."
"Through attending the HWTrek Meetup, we met creators from around the world and got a real understanding of their projects and requirements. We also took away a new grasp of the latest industry trends. I think it really helped our factory to get a grasp of new manufacturing requirements."
"The HWTrek Meetup was a fantastic event. It brought us together with overseas businesses and we were able to discuss their latest projects and individual requirements. We were also able to meet and learn from other supply chain vendors."
"Delighted to be part of HWTrek family. It’s been great for us in terms of finding companies who are interested in retailing and selling their products in China. We have profiles on HWTrek and that helped us to connect with companies around the world."
