The Business Case for Open Source Hardware
February 24 2014, 12:30 - 1:15pm


Manufacturing and selling hardware is a proven business practice but proprietary is the default setting. However, there are distinct advantages to open sourcing hardware destined for sale and distribution.

This session will discuss those advantages on a level playing field with the risks. It will also cover methods for leveraging the community to turn consumers into collaborative product development partners. Embracing open source hardware as a business can be a powerful driver for success.
