Applications for the Rev Hardware Accelerator 2018 cohort are now open! Innovators and inventors with ideas for solving a real-world problem with a hardware product should apply now.
Accepted teams get the unique opportunity to spend 11 weeks taking a deep dive into prototyping and customer discovery. With guidance from experienced entrepreneurship mentors and a team of technical instructors, teams will use Rev’s purpose-build prototyping lab to create a minimum viable prototype. At the same time, teams will explore the business aspects of their idea, speak with real customers, and create a validated business model.
The results will be shared at Hardware Demo Day 2018, where teams can network with the regional startup community to share technologically viable, economically feasible prototypes. Upon completion of our program, Hardware Alums are positioned to recruit team members, bring on partners, work with contract manufacturers, and pitch to investors.
We encourage teams with a diverse, complementary skill set — ideally combining technical skills, an eye for design, and business savvy – to apply for this competitive program. Teams of all backgrounds and experience levels are welcome; successful alums have ranged from 16 to 60+.
Apply here for Rev’s Hardware Accelerator 2018. Applications close February 15, 2018.
