Getting your stuff built: how to shop, conduct business, stay alive, and eat your way through Shenzhen

Posted on Friday, June 8th, 2012 in hacks by DP

When we Bob at the Shenzhen Maker Fair he was learning to get his portable scoreboard manufactured. He’s been blogging about his experience in China, and documented the steps he took to get his project up and running.

In 2012 I was chosen for the first year of HAXLR8R, a Chinese hardware startup accelerator to work on my product, the Portable Electronic Scoreboard. I had never been to China, and Shenzhen and Hong Kong are a mecca for electronics products. I created this blog to document my travel there and observations and lessons about working in manufacturing in China. I know that a lot of people go over there to work, but I couldn’t find the details about what steps are necessary; everything from finding an apartment and getting a phone to ordering food to getting around, to making contacts or working with local businesses.
