ICYMI: Premier Farnell Extends Start-Up Support Ecosystem with Launch

Wednesday, February 7, 2018 6:12 am MST

While open source hardware and software technology have been credited with “democratizing innovation,” easy, cost- competitive access to the latest products and tech support remains a challenge for many makers and start-ups.

To bridge this gap, Premier Farnell has launched, a content-driven site filled with both educational and project-related materials that will allow visitors to “play, learn and create,” according to Steve Carr, global head of marketing at Premier Farnell and Farnell element14.

The site offers an array of technology choices, including the world’s most popular single board computers, like the Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone and BBC micro:bit to help customers jump start their projects. offers easy payment options that consumers are familiar with through PayPal or credit card (via PayPal), and free delivery for orders over £30 or €30.
