Digi-Key Puts Startups Front and Center at CES
12/27/2019 | By David Sandys
Eureka Park is one of those places you have to see to believe. Rows and rows of small booths housing thousands of startups and entrepreneurs. It is like a direct line into the lifeblood of innovation. At Digi-Key we thrive on being a part of each technical hardware-based startups journey. For us, being able to see these dreams come to fruition is an unbelievable culmination of determination, talent, passion and grit and it is part of our DNA. Each year more and more startups make their pilgrimage to take part of Eureka Park and our excitement to see those, many who we have supported and worked closely with over the years, is second to none.
For startups this year at CES, Digi-Key has a couple unique activities. First, Digi-Key will be formally launching our Startups Survival Guide at the Startups Magazine booth. The guide was created in conjunction with Startups Magazine and follows the same 'Design Roadmap' on Maker.io our website made for startups. In it you will find success criteria, success stories and pitfalls to avoid for every stage along a startups journey including Concept/Ideation, Research, Evaluation, Design, Prototyping, Funding, Marketing, Production, Distribution and Support. People can get an electronic version from our website at startups.digikey.com or at the Startups Magazine CES booth in Eureka Park, Tech West, Sands Expo Level 1 Booth 51253.
