SolderWorks LLC, a business-focused hardware and software engineering consultancy located in Westminster, CO, announces the creation of a new strategic role intended to amplify part of its core mission and vision. SolderWorks names Chris Meyer—formerly Head of Developer Experience at Misty Robotics—as its first Head of Innovation.
SolderWorks founder Rich Walsh stated, “With the acceleration we see happening across the IoT sector, we chose Chris to lead our Innovation Program because our company is starting to see strong scale in the coming year.” Walsh continued, “Considering our growth goals, we were very targeted in selecting a talented and experienced resource like Chris.”
Chris Meyer joins SolderWorks with distinguished experience and involvement in the startup community and as one of the best assets in the State when combining his expertise in the hardware and IoT industry. In his previous positions with Sphero and Misty Robotics, he traversed through extensive productization timelines with these successful and notable startup companies.
While SolderWorks is primarily established as an engineering consultancy, a key initiative is their Innovation Program, which provides grant-based office space membership to hardware startups along the Colorado Front Range. Members receive access to industry tools, lab space, and a handpicked industry ecosystem at no cost to the startup while utilizing the resources needed to nurture and incubate their ideas. This philanthropic offering is one of many objectives at SolderWorks, and the Company looks to Chris Meyer to enhance the energy around the organization as well as the innovative technology and relationships produced by this growing ecosystem.
Chris Meyer stated, “I’m extremely pleased to be joining SolderWorks at such an exciting time. The need for resources that extend beyond just hardware or software in the IoT, Robotics, and Edge Computing industries is accelerating, and to join a team that is uniquely positioned to help entrepreneurs be a part of that growth is a fantastic opportunity.”
