“Software eats the world”, as one famous investor once said it. However, our Earth runs on resources and is based on atoms rather than bits. Our true progress therefore depends mainly on our producing, selling innovative physical products, that is hardware. Hardware is...different. Challenges abound in designing, manufacturing, getting funding, hiring, innovating, delivering to the customers. Resources are scattered around and only a few exist. Where do you get real, practical knowledge? This podcast is the first one for hardware entrepreneurs, where hardware entrepreneurs are interviewed from around the world, exceptional persons who founded startups or small and medium-sized enterprises. This show is for you with a desire to found and run a company in a global environment. Learn first-hand from hardware entrepreneurs who have already gone through the ups and downs of the business. During each episode the INDIVIDUAL stories are uncovered, following up with an ULTRAFAST round of questions at the end. Bringing you these stories is entrepreneur and cosmopolitan, Balint Horvath, based in Switzerland, the land of green pastures and fresh ideas.

Great podcast and great host!

Balint's interviews are thoughtful and informative. The Hardware Entrepreneur podcast was our startup's go-to source of industry insight when our questions required ground-level perspective. I highly recommend for anyone building a product or interested in the world of hardware development.

Glad I found this podcast

I found Balint’s podcast via Stephen Key. A very timely and helpful discovery as I’m in the midst of bringing 2 products to market. Going back to previous episodes has been like finding some hidden treasure. Great resources and insights that are coming in handy as I journey forward.

Passionate, engaging, conversation on science and entrepreneurship, especially the hardware aspects

Entrepreneurship and science are two of our times’ most intriguing and important topics, as well as sources of solutions to our most pressing global challenges. A few episodes in his podcast deal explictly with sustainable product creation. Few people understand both entrepreneurship and science. Fewer still can speak about them in accessible, friendly, still intelligent ways. Balint does.

If you care about entrepreneurship, especially from a scientific perspective and from a physical product -- i.e. hardware -- point of view, listen to Balint.
