Bring Your Product To Life with 6,000+ Manufacturers
Startup Launchpad provides startups with access to over 6,000+ verified manufacturers.
Manufacturing is one of the most difficult and complex aspects of launching hardware products, costing startups tens (or hundreds) of thousands of dollars with an unpredictable time frame, throwing a real monkey-wrench in the operation. Engineering is also never easy, quality control gets very tricky very quickly, and the process itself is simply draining. Startup Launchpad understands this issue too well and offers exhibitors wishing to explore alternative manufacturing solutions to get introduced to numerous manufacturers during the event.
Showcase your innovation to the world's renowned retailers
Maybe you have been trying to get in touch with the person in charge at Brookstone or Best Buy, but don’t know where to start. We have a Buyer Corner where you can sign up to have 1-on-1 meetings with specific retailers and pitch your product.
Gain actionable insights from international industry experts
No show would be complete without a conference program. Although our focus is mainly on manufacturing and distribution, we invite thought leaders and experts to come and share how they went from ordinary to hardware superheroes.
Learn how to build better hardware startups
Maybe you are not ready to get into retail yet, and are still trying to figure out your manufacturing. We hold workshops with industry experts that take you through all the essential topics from pricing, to manufacturing in China, to how to talk to Buyers. Our workshops get you ready to DO REAL BUSINESS.
Connect with the right people and resources
We hold mini events every month to bring together the hardware community. We bring in thought leaders and hardware heroes that have paved the way to tell us how they did it. Our mini events are a great way to learn more about who we are, what we are about and to meet and network with your peers.
