FAQs about Lemnos Labs
Q. How do you define hardware?
A. Rather than focus on specific technologies, we will consider anything in the hardware field except for microchips. Everything from consumer products to aerospace/defense is fair game, as long as it is innovative.
Q. How are you different from other incubators?
A. Our main focus is hardware. Most hardware startups face hazards like bad production runs, design delays, and safety recalls that can cause serious setbacks or even failure. We can help you avoid these problems by holding regular formal design reviews and bringing together experts in manufacturing, logistics, reliability, standards and testing to give you feedback at every step along the way.
Q. What resources do you provide?
A. Warehouse space, access to prototyping & testing facilities, legal services, introductions to investors and suppliers, a 24/7 sounding board, weekly office hours, design & business reviews, guest speakers and more….
