SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Advancements in open source hardware, do-it-yourself tools and crowdfunding have made it almost too easy to launch a hardware startup. And while some ideas beat the odds, most never make it past the initial prototyping or first funding round.

Together, Hackster and Dragon Innovation are going to help makers beat the odds and turn their ideas into successful businesses.
