Prototyping Hardware Accelerator
Are you an entrepreneur ready to take your product idea in agtech, climate tech (or any other area) to the next level? Rev: Ithaca Startup Works invites you to take a deep dive into prototyping this summer!
Over 10 weeks, Rev’s Prototyping Hardware Accelerator guides product teams through a process to determine if their ideas are commercially desirable, technologically viable, and economically feasible. Upon completion of the program, participants are positioned to recruit team members, bring on partners, initiate work with contract manufacturers, and pitch to investors.
The program offers three unique tracks with tailored content and instruction:
- Open Track: Open to innovators in any field since 2014, Rev’s classic track provides foundational training across industries. Participants will be eligible to receive a maximum stipend of $2,000 for prototype development.
- AgTech Track: Agriculture technology startups are immersed in specialized training and connected to experts and potential partners within the agriculture industry. Participants will be eligible to receive a maximum stipend of $2,000 for prototype development.
- ClimateTech Track: Climate tech startups are placed in a like-minded cohort, matched with clean energy and clean tech mentors, and learn from guest speakers in the field. Participants will be eligible to receive a maximum stipend of $8,000 for prototype development.
