The failure rate for hardware development is high, the process is often slow and the costs associated are significant.
The Melt, based at Dashworks Makespace, has been designed to target these challenges and help both startups and corporates access funding, expertise, equipment and pathways to rapidly realise product development success. It includes:
The Melt Accelerator – a structured program with funding, tools and services to help startups build great hardware products and launch a successful business.
The Melt Labs – a proven product development process for companies looking to speed up corporate innovation, increase their competitive advantage and produce a new revenue stream.
Strategic product development for corporates.
Strategic product development is the key to survival for many companies. But organisations often struggle to identify disruptive opportunities and efficiently advance innovation projects. This is particularly true for hardware development, where the risk, skills required and time to marketed are significantly increased.
The Melt Labs gives you the edge with a proven process, expertise and equipment you need to drive product ideas and deliver strategic innovation.
We’ve partnered with market leaders to bring you the collective expertise, tools and capability you need to build and commercialise your product.
The Melt partners include:
The result is the combination of three key elements – an industrial prototyping lab, hardware accelerator and coworking space – the recipe for success for Australian’s next product innovators and corporate leaders.
