Feeling entrepreneurial? Developing an electronic product is never easy. Technical challenges (both hardware and software), supplier issues, and government rules and regulations are typically factors to consider. And if you add a global pandemic to the mix, the entire process can seem downright impossible. Fortunately, Elektor is here to help.

In the webinar, “Electronic Product Development in 2020 and Beyond,” Elektor engineers Clemens Valens and Stuart Cording will speak with Jason Long (Founder, Engenuics Technologies) and Ruben van der Vleuten (Cofounder, FROLIC studio) about the challenges associated with developing electronic products during difficult times. Register now to hear these talented innovators discuss their technical experiences and share their insights about the future of electronic product design.
