About the Newsletter

Open Science Shop also just launched a newsletter which we think could be of interest to the IO Rodeo community as well. The newsletter will be covering specific topics or resources related to running an open hardware science business. The email newsletters can also be viewed on the blog site where they will be publicly accessible. Posts will be shared generally every other Friday and you can sign-up at the link below!
