Hardware Product Prototyping Accelerator is an intensive 2 week prototyping program for testing, refining, and improving your early prototype so that you can show to potential users (or investors) and give them a experience of what your product looks and feels like to use and get feedback. A prototype helps you determine if your product is addressing a real need and achieve the user goal.
Areas of Focus:
To build a hardware startup, you need diverse skillsets necessary to create, test and sell a product and it’s very unlikely these skills exist in a single person.
At Hardware Product Prototyping Accelerator, we combine the Makerspace infrastructure with rapid prototyping concepts, industry mentors and skillsets you need to successfully test, refine, and improve your early prototype.
During the Hardware Product Prototyping Acceleration you and your team will transform your idea or early prototype into a functioning product prototype that you can showcase with the target users/ customers.
Craft better solutions by learning from early, and inexpensive mistakes before you take the product to the market.
Validate the product faster driven by Lean tools and methodologies in order to validate in a cost effective/ cheaper manner.
Who are eligible to apply?
- Individuals or startups who are willing to transform their idea or early prototype into a functioning product prototype that can be showcased with the target users/ customers.
- Startups that are looking to validate their product faster driven by Lean tools and methodologies in order to validate in a cost effective/ cheaper manner.
- Hardware Startups that need Design and prototyping expertise.
Process of Application
Individuals and Startups can apply by filling this form. Only applications vetted by the CIE along with Collab House and TMOT shall be considered for the programme. The selected ideas from the application process will go through the prototyping programme.
A note on Hardware Product Prototyping
India has witnessed a surge in the startup sector with a recorded number of 19000 startups in 2016. Majority of the startups are in the consumer internet and financial services space. As most of the common problem statements out of which business cases and startups emerge as solutions are addressed, a new domain opens up for startups that employ rapid prototyping that allows to validate the product faster driven by Lean tools and methodologies in order to validate in a cost effective/ cheaper manner. “Hardware Product Prototyping Accelerator” would be a good place to start-off if you are dreaming to build the next Hardware Product or you are working on an idea that requires Rapid Prototyping Skills on Rapid Prototyping concepts, Product Design, Product Development, Industrial Design, Testing, Assembly, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering and Production Engineering.
