Here at Industrio we are committed to funding and building great products. But we do more than investing. We provide to you and your team a seed fund, professional prototyping development resources and strong manufacturing support.
ALL YOU NEED TO GROW
Industrio is focused on support pre-revenue hardware startups that are looking to grow and bring amazing products to market from Italy. Twice a year (in spring and autumn) we run a 5 months prototype-to-product program where we drive selected teams to achieve the most important things a hardware startup need to accomplish in the shorter time: business model, prototype, DFM, certification, go to market, fund raising. Also every week you will meet with our 40+ advisor network and partners that will give you feedback on your product concepts, prototypes and product development.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
Industrio-16 will begin April 2016 (application close 30th March 2016). You can apply filling out the form in the Pitch Now area in the Industrio websitewww.industrio.co.
Industrio invests in only hardware startups made by a team of 2+ entrepreneurs that want to build a disruptive product like: consumer device, B2B devices, automation and mechanics, robotics, biohacking, energy and environment, smart home appliances, Internet of things.
We accept application until 30th March 2016 and the Acceleration Program starts at the end of April 2016. All the activities will be located between Industrio Headquarter and facilities in Trentino and Milan. The Program lasts a minimum of 20 weeks.
We take lean startups seriously: you will work outside in our network of industries and labs close to Industrio, be outside and inside workshops and with the access to A-level tooling and machineries.
A SOLID ADAPTIVE MODEL
During the acceleration program you and your team will transform your prototype into a company working in one of the best industrial and entrepreneurial ecosystem in the world: Italy. Our model will let your startup grow in two tracks: on the product one you will get access to partners and tools that will help you validate faster a product and make it ready for manufacturing; than on the business one you will be prepared to bring to market and sell your product worldwide. The product and the business tracks will be driven by Lean tools and methodologies in order to validate cheaper your assumption and connect faster the customers with your product.
Our investment portfolio is made by Italian and international entrepreneurs that want to challenge the industry with their product. We are supporting more than startups: we are on the side of dreamers, inventors, makers, entrepreneurs that are looking to bring to market amazing technology solutions.
