Meet the Expert

 

ABOUT THE TOPIC

With the advent of IoT and wearable devices, new business models are flourishing. Entrepreneurs might want to surf on these new trends and build a smart device. Hardware is hard, expensive and can go wrong quickly, but with the right methodology and by avoiding certain mistakes, it can become a fantastic opportunity. 

Sam will share his experience building Octopus by JOY, the first icon-based watch that empowers kids by teaching good habits and the concept of time.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Sam Hickmann is an entrepreneur based in San Francisco. He moved to the Bay in 2010 after having sold his first company in France. Proud father of 2, he’s now the co-founder & CEO of JOY, a company specialized in behavioral technologies for families.
