CNC machining specialist and manufacturing partner, Get It Made has announced a brand new initiative aimed at innovative startups in the robotics industry who could be eligible to receive a manufacturing grant of up to £2,500.
Get It Made, which works alongside top UK universities, established household names and early stage startups, is developing a programme to enable new businesses to turn their ideas from design to reality. This will be done by working closely with the chosen business to advance their manufacturing capabilities, improve efficiency and foster a quality manufacturing partnership.
“We are thrilled to be offering our support and manufacturing expertise to robotics startups. We will help identify, understand and remove barriers so their innovation can become a reality and get to market quicker. We have worked with a number of great names in the robotics industry and are excited to be able to offer a £2,500 grant to access manufacturing services and become the next pioneers in this unique industry,” said Luke Smoothy, Managing Director at Get It Made.
The grant is designed to enable cutting-edge research and development needed to support UK innovation and to underpin continued, sustainable growth. Applicants for the Robotics grant will be judged on the impact to the startup, to the robotics industry, and how urgent the hardware is needed.
The manufacturing grant is available to startup businesses in the robotics space that have launched in the last three years and have fewer than 25 employees. University-based research projects are also eligible for the grant, and you will have direct access to Get It Made engineers who will help support your project from a Design for Manufacturing perspective.
