“To help inventors of physical products realize their ideas to market
so they can change the world one hardware at a time."
Here at Sydney Hardware Incubator, our program includes tailored learning experiences for early stage ideas of physical products in a wide variety of industries and based on a deep understanding of the business world. With a wealth of experience and an impressive list of mentors and directors, Sydney Hardware Incubator provides an unmatched experience for those with untapped potential.
This Part time (every Saturday 6-7 hours) 25-week program is designed for promising early stage-hardware startups whose Founders are driven, who have identified and can demonstrate market need, whose invention is meaningful and that would benefit from having access to a cutting-edge prototyping facility and specialised industry mentors to develop polished MVP's they can test with early stage customers in their relevant industry.
By completing this program, participants will be best prepared to undertake industry trials and start collecting accurate data on the benefits and scope of use of their products. This program is designed to address the gaps present within existing industry-specific accelerator programs that are not able to adequately assist startups throughout their product development stages.
The program provides the ideal platform to make the transition from an early-stage project to a full-scale business opportunity. The Program achieves this by addressing all critical stages needed to launch a new product and business in the market.
Sydney Hardware Incubator is located in Marrickville Maker Space & Co. where we have access to wood working, metal working, pottery, ceramic, SLA & FDM 3d printing, metal workshop, and Electronics Lab to build your product.
