Company description

Our team is building a community in Los Angeles dedicated to bringing hardware companies to market. Our background ranges from seed-stage businesses to public companies. With the backing of NEO Tech, we are able to apply professional manufacturing tools and other resources directly into programs and start-ups to maximize the odds of success.

Hardware can be costly and time consuming. It can be hard. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Our definition of hardware is broad, but we look for teams bringing a technologically advanced and tangible item to market.

We focus on developing the people behind the products, knowing that a talented team in the right place at the right time will be successful. Entrepreneurs and their business models are stress tested through a 4-month immersive crash-course to get to market.

We bombard you with resources which include access to production level and prototype level equipment, office space, warehouse and logistics, seasoned mentors from the hardware space, ancillary business partners, and good coffee. And checks up to $150,000 in the first year.
