We have already had an overwhelmingly positive response from the community regarding the opening of our very first HARDWARE.co Lab on January 20th, 2015.The HARDWARE.co Lab by Conrad at betahaus | Berlin is a resource for the tech community in Berlin regardless of skill level. There are a number of ways to take advantage of this space for HARDWARE.co and betahaus community members. For those of you waiting to see the space and already thinking about how you might use this great resource, we have put together a few ways you can get involved right now.
Here are three ways that people can use the space:
Apply for the HARDWARE.co Accelerator Program
The HARDWARE.co Accelerator program accepts early stage teams and individuals building great hardware products and startups. Over the 14-day free program, startups receive access to 50+ mentors to advise on business and hardware topics. The program culminates in a public demo day to pitch their idea to the community and a number of investors.
For the first time, HARDWARE.co Accelerator Teams will also enjoy full access to the HARDWARE.co Lab facilities as part of the program. This will include full access to the lab as a workspace, as well as contact with the Lab’s team to advise on prototyping, technical manufacturing and testing.
The application process for the accelerator is open until the 28th of January.
