If you are looking to make your idea a reality, experiment and innovate, then look no further! Develop new skills and put your theories to the test with the Prototype Fund.
What is the Prototype Fund?
The Prototype Fund (formerly Boost Grants) is designed to turn your inspiring, inventive and entrepreneurial ideas into a reality, providing early stage ideas with the necessary cash boost (grant funding) to get off the ground.
Participants can apply individually or in teams to receive up to £500-£1000 to develop a working physical prototype of your idea at the Hackspace with technical support and guidance from the Hackspace team.
If you are still wondering whether an idea is worth pursuing, you might also want to check out the Discovery Fund!
By the end of this programme you’ll have learnt how to:
Develop an idea from first concept to a prototype
Navigate the rapid prototyping journey and convert ideas into working prototypes
Design prototyping experiments to help validate, refine or discredit an idea quickly.
Use new skills and approaches to design (physical) prototypes
Don’t just take our word for it
