HWTrekHWTrek is revolutionizing the way hardware is brought to market.  The company recently announced the debut of its enhanced community platform – an easy-to-use, open and neutral digital medium that unites hardware inventors, design and manufacturing experts and financial backers to foster innovation and cross-functional communication in order to bring next-generation hardware dreams to fruition.  The global platform is specifically designed to provide its participating individuals and companies with the tools necessary to achieve their goals, while also offering an opportunity for its network on industry experts to showcase and demo their solutions; examples of these include xBeacon and the Zigbee Solution.

The HWTrek community platform simplifies the go to market process for inventors in the consumer hardware space, helping them to develop, fund and showcase their latest technologies and solutions.  Participating inventors in the wearable, sports, toys/games, cameras/AV, family and home automation, mobile device accessories, auto, health and science categories can leverage HWTrek’s platform to bring their ideas to reality in five simple steps: create, collaborate, source, crowdfund and build.

After submitting an innovative idea, inventors can leverage HWTrek’s direct channels to access successful executives in technology design, marketing and intellectual property, as well as 130+ HWTrek experts from top manufacturers in Asia, to collaborate on product design, production costs, materials, and more.  Inventors can then work with the expert community to create successful crowdfunding campaigns that allow them access to capital to fund the cost of building the invention through local venture capitalists, seed capital or pre-A funding.  Once inventors have reached their funding goals, they can once again collaborate with community to build and trademark their products.

Over 400 hardware designs have been featured on HWTrek’s innovative platform since its initial launch in September 2013; and in the wake of the platform’s success, many have flourished.  One example is BeLuvv, who leveraged the platform to successfully raise $11,235, 113% of its target funding goal, for its wearable device called Guardian.
