Highway1, the hardware incubator founded by Irish manufacturing giant PCH, is offering its next class of startups $50,000 in seed money, up from $20,000, and has moved into larger digs in the Potrero Hill area of San Francisco. It also opened the application process for its fall program (for more on the program read our story on its launch), so ship yours in before June 20 if you have a hot hardware startup idea you want to bring to reality. Based on the number of hardware ideas in my inbox, hundreds will likely enter and 15 will be chosen.
There’s a new San Francisco hardware incubator on the scene with a four-month program and deep ties to manufacturing in China. Meet Highway1, an incubator backed by China’s PCH International.
