Through this programme, Zetwerk will provide a complete stack of dedicated services for each requirement of a hardware startup to expedite its journey from prototype to production, as per a company statement.

The programme promises four critical features to any budding startup in the hardware space: Build, Research, Collaborate & Network.

Under the programme, startups will be able to work with Zetwerk to expedite prototypes to production process, scale up, and build resilient supply chains and dedicated assembly lines for long term growth. They will also be able to leverage Zetwerk’s network and experience in building R&D-intensive products in new age industries of drones, space and aerosystems. Besides, startups would be able to collaborate with over 20 industry verticals of Zetwerk to run pilots with world’s leading companies and also get a chance to work with other startup founders, product managers, VCs, and industry experts.

The programme will also enable hardware startups to scale their operations and improve their production capabilities by Zetwerk’s manufacturing capabilities and reach out to newer markets through Zetwerk’s partner network. In addition, the company will offer tailor-made resilient supply chain solutions to startups for their products and leverage Zetwerk’s global scale and logistics to expedite deliveries.

“Manufacturing is hard. Setting up a reliable manufacturing value chain for early-stage hardware companies is a major challenge. Through BUILD, Zetwerk aims to help early-stage hardware companies accelerate output and optimise production by unlocking high quality, reliable, cost-competitive manufacturing through the click of a button. Zetwerk BUILD aims to be the default operating system for manufacturing," said Amrit Acharya, Co-Founder & CEO, Zetwerk Manufacturing.

Over the next 24 months, Zetwerk aims to partner with at least 50 hardware startups globally through the programme. In addition to providing discounted pricing for global logistics and warehousing, Zetwerk will also offer financial assistance for setting up dedicated production lines to aid these startups’ long-term growth.
