Born to scale: Turning product idea into business

Starting a hardware business can be hard only if you are starting this journey alone or you don’t have any direction. Unlike any other software companies, physical product startups face many challenges from how to turn a product hobby into a scalable business, finding necessary suppliers, raise money for their invention, set up mass production and deliver the product to consumers on time.

With this event we will try to answer the common question – how to turn your product idea into viable business. We will talk about the following points:

Part 1: From prototype to business

  • Steps to starting a hardware startup
  • Product-Market fit: who wants your product and why?
  • Design for manufacture: what to remember when designing a product for scalability?

Part 2: Introduction to CRL Hardware Accelerator

  • Programme details
  • Application process
  • Q&A with CRL startups from the first cohort

We are excited to welcome hardware enthusiasts for a night full of free pizza and drinks! Great thank you to Machines Room for hosting us.
