A word from the Author

Hi, I'm Mathilde Berchon

I started MakingSociety back in 2011 to help makers turning pro. Since then, I met hundreds of hardware founders, attended many events in many countries. I was based in San Francisco, CA, for 4 years and saw the rise of the hardware startup movement first hand.

I am now location independent and change country every month or so. It allows me to meet makers pro around the world and provide valuable and unique information to help the hardware community take shape.

I hope you'll enjoy this guide, which has been 6 months in the making. Please feel free to contact me for any comment or suggestion! I wish you the best.
