How it Works
We provide 8 weeks of instructor led sessions inspired by the Department of Defense’s Manufacturing Readiness Level (MRL) methodology.
We work with the startups to develop critical documentation for their product, including their Technical Drawings, Product Requirements Document, Bill of Materials, Quality Plan.
We match startup teams with the appropriate contract manufacturers for their particular needs, and facilitate productive interactions.
“We’re constantly being asked about processes our company can’t support, like plastics, printed circuit board assembly, extrusions and more. These processes are readily available at many of Rochester’s manufacturing businesses so there’s an opportunity for manufacturers to get some great work.”
Marketing & Business Development Manager, Peko Precision Products
“Startups that complete the Manufacturing Accelerator Program are the kinds of early-stage companies that Z-AXIS likes to work with. These startups are truly ready to engage a contract manufacturer and, in turn, are more likely to succeed.”
“Our Manufacturing Accelerator clients from Cohort 1 are amazing! AGR, HCO and K-Neesio each came to BZDesign with very defined business needs, and strategic goals for their product development and marketing support projects.
We have since recommended several start-ups in our network to the Manufacturing Accelerator Program as it really helps founders paint the full picture of what it takes to successfully commercialize their product.”
