Valispace raises $2.4M lead by JOIN Capital to become the ‘Github for hardware’

Hardware engineering is mostly document-based. A typical satellite might be described in several hundred thousand PDF documents, spreadsheets, simulation files and more; all potentially inconsistent between each other. This can lead to costly mistakes. NASA lost a $125 million Mars orbiter because one engineering team used metric units while another used English units, for instance. Germany-HQ’d Valispace, which also has offices in Portugal, dubs itself as “Github for hardware”. In other words, ...

Brandless? Branded? Which is Better?

— Mark Prus, Principal Nameflash About two and a half years ago, Brandless was launched. The company sold “unbranded” household, personal care, baby, and pet products on the cheap and was viewed as a breakthrough in the “anti-branding” movement. Today, Brandless is dead.
