Get Free Support and Find Funding — Apply Now
You can speed your time to market with the NextCorps’ Manufacturing Accelerator. This is one of the few programs in the nation that helps startups get support and find funding to move concepts into mass production.
It’s a fact that 97% of hardware startups fail because they underestimate development costs and select the wrong partners and resources.
If you have a new technology, NextCorps’ Manufacturing Accelerator can help you avoid common pitfalls and costly mistakes. This program helps you reduce the risk, waste, and cost associated with getting hardware from prototype to production. The free program is designed for early- to growth-stage companies. Through this program, you will be introduced to a simplified approach to Manufacturing Readiness Levels* (MRL), along with the resources, funding opportunities, and manufacturers that can help you refine your product design so that it’s ready to mass produce.
You will learn how to:
+ Access local/state grants and potential investors to raise funds for commercializing your technology in New York State.
+ Optimize your manufacturing roadmap with engaged mentors who will review your plans, help identify potential risks, and keep you on track.
+ Connect with vetted manufacturers, designers, and supply chain experts committed to working with startups.
+ Strengthen all aspects of your business as you progress through instructional sessions.
Applications are now being accepted through March 27.
