DesignSpark Accelerate Goal: Development

Turn your idea into a design, or your design into a prototype

Goal 1

The development goal within Accelerate is at a minimum, to reach your “next step” of product development. Are you entering the program with just an idea? Then you’ll leave with at least a design. Are you entering the program with a functional prototype? Then let’s tweak your prototype to make it production ready.

To achieve this goal, Accelerate will provide services and capabilities such as:

  • Access to design & test engineers
  • Electronic & mechanical parts
  • Fabrication tools and equipment such as 3D printers or electronics test equipment
  • Fabrication services such as metallurgy or PCB manufacturing
  • Design software


If what you need to develop your product is not listed, then we are here to listen! We will scale our development services and capabilities with you to ensure your product is developed successfully.
