U of A Launches Prototyping Lab For Early Stage Startups At The Collaborative
Adding to Northwest Arkansas’s vibrant startup scene, Beta in Bentonville bridges the gap between technology and entrepreneurship by providing an accessible lab for founders to prototype their product ideas.
That’s My Type: A physical prototype can be essential for startups to secure funding for large-scale production. Before the launch of Beta, most early-stage startups had to seek out-of-state prototyping services, at a cost, to manufacture small batches for product testing.
Bring Me To Life: The experts at Beta specialize in computer-aided design and functional prototyping for physical products. All entrepreneurs, regardless of technical skills, can benefit from the lab's resources to bring their ideas to life.
Have a great product idea? Connect with Beta in Bentonville HERE.
