LONDON’S HOME FOR INNOVATIVE HARDWARE STARTUPS
Central Research Laboratory (CRL) is about doing extraordinary things – making extraordinary products, starting extraordinary businesses and giving ambitious teams an extraordinary place, with everything they need to bring their innovations to the marketplace.
What makes CRL unique is that it’s designed to support entrepreneurs at every stage of their journey – from concept development, through prototyping, first batch production and beyond – with mentoring and investment provided along the way.
We also have a strong commitment to collaboration and community. Our programme of mentoring, technical advice, exhibitions and events is just as important as our prototyping labs and workspace.
I represent Central Research Laboratory (CRL), London’s new 9-month hardware accelerator for startups that design and make physical products, launching the programme in late September.
We help early stage startups take their product ideas and turn them into scalable businesses. We cover business model, prototyping, design for manufacture and a chance to get funding for up to £100k. Startups will receive £5k grant on entry plus a 2-week manufacture trip to Shenzhen, China.
We are building the community around hardware and would like to explore the relationship with your company. If you wish to discuss in more detail please do let me know and I would be happy to explain more about CRL and the programme.
