Hardware startup founders represent the highest source of new-to-market product innovation, yet they have the lowest industry skills with prototyping and advanced manufacturing technology, and are poorly represented in the incubator/accelerator scene. Space Tank Studio's B2B program bridges this gap by educating Victorian startup founders in design for manufacturing, IP protection, business and financial development and Computer Numeric Controlled (CNC) manufacturing technology for prototyping. 

Who is it for?

Hardware startup founders, emerging product developers and designers. 

What will you learn? 

Enhance your ability to identify market opportunities, develop ground breaking products, attract venture capital and build export businesses. 

Attendees of the B2B workshops will also be connected with the STS manufacturing and business network. 

What is offered?

The course will be delivered over 12-months and include 30 Classes in 10 categories under the product areas of design, prototyping technology and business & marketing. The course will be offered once and is free of charge.
