The four-month accelerator, offering $50,000 in funding, is now accepting applications – apply before 30th May
Scientific discovery tools — from telescopes to magnetometers — help us answer questions and generate knowledge. But many powerful tools are too expensive or too difficult for non-experts to use. Tool Foundry addresses this problem by advancing scientific discovery tools that anyone can use.
The four-month accelerator is designed to help makers, inventors, engineers, designers, and tinkerers iterate and scale accessible tools. Tool Foundry is seeking applications from high-potential teams with prototypes for low-cost, high-quality, and easy-to-use physical tools for scientific discovery.
Apply to join the Tool Foundry accelerator cohort by May 30, 2019. As part of the accelerator, each cohort team will receive $50,000 in non-dilutive funding, expert mentorship, technical guidance, virtual learning modules, user testing opportunities, and an in-person Boot Camp at the Autodesk Technology Center in San Francisco.
