Building a hardware startup is a crazy adventure, it’s hard, you can’t do it alone, and you can’t possibly know everything from scratch. Usine IO’s team covers a wide range of expertise and they were always able to help us out when we were stuck on a specific issue. Combine that with a space with all the machines a maker could dream of. I knew I would feel at home at Usine. It was exactly the place I needed to develop my project and be able to proudly show it on Kickstarter.

A hardware crowdfunding project can not exist without a functional prototype.
With Usine IO we have found the place and the expertise that helped us finalize our first prototype. As Usine IO members, we have access to a complete workshop equipped with state of the art hardware and software tools for hardware prototyping and, even more importantly, help from experts in many areas like CAD/CAM, electronics and DfM among other things.
Thanks to Usine IO, we were quickly able to make the video that turned our Indiegogo campaign into a great success.
