Strings of companies hopped on the smart device bandwagon to tap this burgeoning sector. But many of them find it is difficult to get funds and find a trusted manufacturer to bring the ideas for their carefully-designed products into life, especially when there are higher demands for product quality and cost control in mass production.

HWTrek (Hardware Trek), a Taiwan-based global community for digital electronics, aims to address these problems by providing a crowdfunding platform where it also pairs manufacturers with project creators to help navigate the complexities of bringing new hardware to market.
