Why would I need a prototype space?

Our “Espace d’Innovation” at our site Jura is a dedicated space for our residents to realize their ideas. It was created together with DayOne Tech in 2023 and offers startups a workspace to adjust and develop their prototypes. It includes a pillar drill, two 3D printers and a wide range of electronic components and devices.

Making an MVP right at the office is convenient, especially with a space that allows you to do as many tests as possible. With a prototype, you can convincingly present your ideas at a pitch or impress partners and investors. It is a great first step when reaching out to the industry. Also, our space is very accessible (you only bring in the materials, the machinery and tools are free to use).

All of our residents at our site Jura and medtech startups from the DayOne Tech accelerator can access the innovation space.
