AlphaLab Gear is a nationally-ranked hardware accelerator in Pittsburgh, PA.
Hardware Cup is an international pitch competition with a $50k grand prize.
At AlphaLab Gear, we guide early-stage physical product companies through a 30-week program, providing funding, office space, education sessions, connections to customers, and mentorship from industry experts. We follow the program with an optional eight-week manufacturing-focused module. We take companies from an initial idea or prototype, through engaging early customers, to fulfilling demand by manufacturing at scale.
The Hardware Cup tours 7 US regions, with events in: Pittsburgh, San Jose, Boston, Washington DC, Chicago, Boulder, and Atlanta. Check out www.hardwarecup.com for more information.
