You should have at least functional prototype to qualify for the program. You spend 1.5 months working out of IDA Labs coworking space under close mentorship of HaxAsia team. The key task is to develop functional prototype into sleek commercial sample that you can demonstrate to the public and media. We will link you up with partner industrial design studio and sample manufacturers. We will also help you vet your design with the partner contract manufacturers and get initial quote to make sure you run crowdfunding campaign with viable economics. If you need some R&D support, we will have preselected partners ready to help as well.
The second scope of this stage is to develop crowdfunding video and test use cases within close circles and via focus groups. You may start pre-marketing campaign to build your mailing list (sign-ups on website) and prepare all necessary assets for crowdfunding campaign.
The Singapore segment of the programme will be held at IDA Labs@National Design Centre – a new, exciting innovation space for the community to build hardware and software products.
