incubation program


For startups preparing your own physical product or developing technology to support manufacturing in other companies.

Why join?

In this program we will guide you into the world of manufacturing and help you reach your targets. Through MADE’s (Manufacturing Academy of Denmark) incubation program you will increase your network and gain the knowledge you need to become “ready for production”.

The Manufacturing Incubator is targeted two groups of startups:

1. startups with a physical product – electronic devices, medical equipment, furniture etc. – that are looking for ways to set up manufacturing, and

2. startups that are developing manufacturing technology to other companies, e.g. robots, 3D-printers, sensors, circular models etc.

You will get access to:

  • Matchmaking with well-established manufacturing companies
  • Workshops on relevant topics (manufacturing methods, IPR, sales etc.)
  • Market visibility through events, demo days etc.
  • Industry-specific investor meetings
  • Networking with otherphysical product startups
  • MADE projects with extensive advice from skilled experts
  • Online learning modules and tools to professionalize your business development

How does it work?

Based on your application and an individual dialogue, we will tailor a specific program that fits your needs and current challenges – and not least, your time.

Throughout the program, you will have a dedicated contact person from MADE who will guide you through the entire process. We will set up recurring meetings to follow up on your case and to discuss any new opportunities and challenges.

What's going to happen?

Once your application has been approved, we will meet to plan your specific schedule.
