HOW IT WORKS

1: APPLY

If you are a hardware startup, meaning if you make a physical product, you can apply. We are looking for promising startups that will benefit highly from the program. Specifically, we’re capable of helping startups with issues related to design for manufacturing, part sourcing, partner selection, productization, reliability, legal, marketing, etc.

2: SELECT

We will begin by assessing the startups during the onboarding period, once we know what they have, and what they don’t have, we will then prioritize issues, and bring in the appropriate expertise, mentor or bridge an appropriate connection to address these issues.

3: ACCELERATE

Work at Europe’s biggest (and best) coworking space: Betahaus for the duration of the program. Get top notch mentorship from specialists in the areas of Legal Issues, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Prototyping, Business Modeling and many more. We connect with manufacturers and teach how to work with them and manage the manufacturing process.

4: LAUNCH

Our aim is for all teams that by the end of our full acceleration program they get funding by traditional or crowdfunding terms, or start their own manufacturing run!
