With Prusa Research behind our backs, in 2021 we have launched a unique accelerator program focused on hardware prototyping and the development of innovative products. We provide startups with six months of unlimited access to a hi-tech workshop, technology consulting, and financial support worth hundreds of thousands of Czech crowns with the opportunity to apply for further investment after successful completion of the development run.
The program is open to commercial and non-commercial projects at all stages of development and opens its doors once a year.
What are the alumni saying?
thanks to the Accelerator, we have become a fully-fledged hardware-technology brand in the field of bicycle saddle development.
Less than a year since we considered applying for the accelerator, we had mapped out the manufacturing process and were testing working prototypes. Teaming up with one of the world’s largest 3D printer manufacturers has opened the door to partners and developers, and allowed us to get a peek under the hood of a major technology company to gain know-how in more than just 3D printing. We have even managed to equip PrusaLab with a workshop for laminating composite materials. Thanks to an exit investment, we were able to move the entire production to our own premises.
Although the project was a weekend thing at first, participation in the accelerator allowed us to embark on an intensive development journey.
