Space Tank Call-out for talented Melbourne makers

BY Space Tank Studio | 16-Jul-2018
Space Tank is looking for kick-ass Melbourne makers for their 9 month Bench to Business training program, designed to teach high impact product development and business skills to creative makers. This program is funded by LaunchVic – so it’s FREE and will be offered only once - Round 2 applications are now open until 28th July 2018.
Space Tank’s makerspace, the only business incubator in Melbourne to fill the manufacturing gap, will run the program from $250,000 of funding received from the State Government’s $60 million start-up support strategy.

Candidates will be selected via application and the program will take place at Space Tank’s North Coburg product development incubator and training facility. Product start-up founders from health care devices, smart wearables, creative practices, niche manufacturing, robotics, leisure and transport sectors are eligible.

Founded in 2013 by Holger Dielenberg, Space Tank has grown to become Australia’s first high-end maker-space for start-ups – providing equipment, technology, fabrication space and accelerator pathways to help entrepreneurs commercialise their intellectual property.

Training will focus on the areas where product developers need support to realize their innovations: identifying commercial potential, IP protection and business/financial development, product design skills, marketing, prototype development and CNC manufacturing skills.

You can choose individual courses within the Bench to Business program:

• User centred design & prototyping for design
• Manufacturing design
• Laser cutting
• 4axis CNC milling
• FDM 3D printing
• Wood working
• Financial/Biz development
• Patent & IP law
