Highway1 application for fall 2015 is now open

H

One of the most interesting hardware accelerators Highway1 is currently taking on new applications for the fall of 2015. So if you got a prototype and are looking to get your hardware startup going for real, this is for you.

This call for applications is explicitly open for companies founded outside the US, too – as an ambassador for Highway1, I’m happy to help and talk to you if you’re based in Europe (personally, I’m based in Berlin).

For a quick first glance at the program:

Highway1 is a full-spectrum, hands-on educational program that helps entrepreneurs realize their retail distribution dreams. In exchange for 4-7% equity, Highway1 offers $50,000 in cash in addition to the benefits of our prototyping labs, mentor network, location, and global connections.

It’s a program that caters specifically to early-stage companies building hardware for the long term.

It’s a great team you’d be working with, I highly recommend it.

You can find details on highway.io, or just straight to the application details here.

Joining the Highway1 Ambassador Program

Highway1 is one of the best hardware accelerators out there. Part of global producat development and supply chain PCH, Highway1 is focused on early seed stage hardware startups helping them develop their idea from prototype to manufacturable, scalable product.

I’m happy to announce that the good folks over at Highway1 kindly asked me to join as an ambassador alongside an great group of inspiring people. Needless to say, I’ll be keeping my eyes open primarily for European startups that might stand to profit from working with Highway1. It’s a great way to help hardware startups get faster from idea to market.

Full disclosure: Highway1 has in the past sponsored and otherwise supported events of mine, like ThingsCon.
