Proto Alpha Accelerator: Product Realization Accelerator for Early Prototype Development

Proto Alpha is a Product Realization Accelerator that aims to help innovators who have product ideas but lack

resources and capabilities to realize the product to convert their ideas into early stage prototypes.

If you have the following:

  • A well defined and unique problem/ need definition
  • A generic strategy/ idea to solve the problem

But do not have the engineering capabilities or resources to make and test a prototype of the idea, then this program

can help you.

In this program, the Protoshop team will work with idea owners to

  • Detail the solution
  • Understand and evaluate the feasibility
  • Further improve engineering design for technical feasibility, feasibility for manufacturing, commercial feasibility etc
  • Implement 1 or more early prototypes to demonstrate proof of concept
  • Work with the idea owner to transfer the technology to either the idea owner’s own startup or a third party licensee

The focus shall be on:

  • Engineering design
  • Electronics, Instrumentation, Sensors
  • Computing, IOT, AI/ML
  • Supporting mechanical design
