Our Future Depends on the Next Generation

Since 2011, Get It Made has worked with a diverse range of innovative businesses in the hardware industry and has witnessed how technology influences all aspects of everyday life. Innovation has produced some of the key machines that help make our world go around – such as satellites, robotics, quantum computers and renewables – and Get It Made wants to assist you in developing the next innovative, tangible product.

Get It Made understands the needs of early-stage aerospace startups, and we have developed a programme to support new businesses in turning their ideas from design to reality.

Not only will the grant provide free manufactured parts (to the value of £10,000), the scheme will allow successful applicants to work closely with Get It Made’s knowledgeable engineers to accelerate the design and development of their ideas.

Get It Made will help identify, understand and remove barriers so that innovation can become a reality and so that products get to market quicker. We can’t wait to find the next industry pioneers!
