Target: Validate a problem At this stage, you are exploring the idea feasibility and market demand. The usual lean startup methodology applies: customer development interviews, surveys, and all kinds of research. Financing needs: close to zero The concept phase generally requires no external funding. Target: “It works” A cousin of the Minimum Viable Product (MVP), this device made from off-the-shelf components and 3D-printed or handmade custom parts does the job in a half-broken way. Financing needs: minimal At this stage, your bill-of-material (BOM) for one unit could range from a few tens of dollars to thousands, depending on your product. As you now have a product, advice will pour in. How the Leap Motion controller evolved over time (Source: Leap Motion) Retail

The Lean Hardware Startup: From Prototype To Production Editor’s note: Cyril Ebersweiler is the founder of the pioneering hardware startup accelerator HAXLR8R (which is now looking for applicants) and Partner at SOSVentures. Benjamin Joffe is an expert on startup ecosystems, angel investor and Advisor at HAXLR8R. Both invest in companies around the world and spent over a decade in China and Japan. This is Part 1 of a series. If the printing press was about “anyone can read,” the web about “anyone can write,” the hardware ecosystem changed enough to say today “anyone can build.” This idea – that anyone can build – is the cornerstone of the new “lean hardware startup.” Yet, despite successes like Square, Jawbone, and Fitbit, hardware startups continue to look daunting to entrepreneurs and investors alike. The first challenge for hardware entrepreneurs is to get from your first prototype with 3D-printed parts, duct tape and cardboard to production-ready. Design with the right components Hardware often starts with a “bag of parts.”

La lettre au père Noël de Makery Les kits de prototypage se multiplient, qui proposent aux makers des cartes pour aller plus vite dans la conception de leurs projets. A travers leurs campagnes de financement participatif, ils attirent la convoitise et le soutien des internautes. Chez Makery, on a décidé d’en faire une lettre au père Noël… Très inspirées du succès du micro-contrôleur Arduino, utilisé dans nombre de projets d’électronique embarquée, les cartes de prototypage se multiplient, qui font appel à la générosité des internautes sur les sites de crowdfunding, avec plus ou moins de succès.
