Greater Bay Area - Manufacturing
Overview
Brinc’s Greater Bay Area Manufacturing Program spanning Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Guangzhou, has been designed for hardware founders approaching the critical transition from prototype to production. This is a complex process in which a product needs to be designed for manufacturing, supply chain partners need to be identified, contracts secured, and multiple rounds of qualification builds and testing need to be executed to validate production before shipping. This creates several potential points of failure for startups and limited options to navigate this process effectively.

We recognize these challenges in transitioning from prototype to production and have created the three month Manufacturing Program utilizing the same process we have used to help commercialize 50+ products over the past 5 years through our Services Division.

Join the leading Manufacturing program in the heart of Hong Kong and get access to one of the fastest growing urban and population centres in the world, via the Greater Bay Area.
