IGNITION : IDEA QUALIFACATION AND PROTOTYPING

This conception phase will allow you to iterate on your initial idea by producing a first documentation that will help to frame your project by analyzing the essential technological functions and establish several use-cases. During this stage you will also produce the first aesthetic mockup and determine the path forward to creating your first functional proof of concept (PoC).

When you complete this phase, you will have identified a technical partner and other relevant profiles as well as tested and validated several technical solutions.

Objectives

  • Shoebox prototyping
  • Produce physical mockup
  • Generate an inventory of the product functions and their associated technologies
  • Documents: first pitch + competition benchmark + financial benchmark

Services included

  • Project management, via 2 to 3 tailored meetings per month
  • Technical expertise via 2 targeted meetings with our experts
  • Content and methodology
  • Online technical hotline
  • Targeted network contacts: tech, communications, business development
  • Opportunities to exchange with our members and alumni network
  • Occasional access to Usine IO HQ

490€ HT/team/month

  • For one team (up to 9 people)
  • Add-on : coworking office - 350€ HT/person/month
  • Add-on : technical workshop access -150€ HT/person/month

LIFT-OFF : DEVELOPMENT

This development phase is focused on the fundamental design/conception of your project and is designed to help you pass from the proof of concept (PoC) phase to the adaptation of technologies for the desired use. During this stage your team will integrate the functional and formal constraints to reach beta-testable prototypes.

When you have completed this phase, your technically-sound prototypes will drastically facilitate product-market testing and you will have a validated plan next steps regarding industrialization.
 

Objectives

  • Integrate form and functional prototypes (including software, if applicable)
  • Prepare user testing and product pre-promotion campaign(s) 
  • Complete BOM nomenclature including budget estimates
  • Documents: investor pitch + presentation video + detailed business plan

Prerequisite

  • Proof of concept and completion of Phase 1 objectives

Services included

  • Project management, via 2 to 3 tailored meetings per month
  • Technical expertise via 2 targeted meetings with our experts
  • Content and methodology
  • Online technical hotline
  • Targeted network contacts: tech, communications, business development

Objectives

  • Prototypes using real materials, real finishing and pre-series PCB
  • Standards and compliance  
  • Packaging, branding, logistics and distribution
  • Manufacturing routing + assembly and quality reference manuals
  • Documents: supply chain + marketing/communication + steering budget

Prérequisite

  • A product that has been tested and validated for targeted public with a fixed set of functions and technical solutions.

Services included
