Prototyping Assistance Scheme
Prototyping Assistance Scheme (PAS) was established in 2015 to accelerate new product development and commercialisation of competitive hardware startups.
Companies can avail from the professional expertise of established prototyping houses with a grant up to $20,000 (i.e. 70% support for Prototyping House’s consultancy fees & qualifying overheads.)
Applicant companies could benefit from:
- Feasibility report advising the applicant on the engineering and manufacturing viability of the new product
- Display level prototype to be used for fund raising
Project period is up to 1 year. Applicant companies can continue to have further business collaboration or partnership with the prototyping houses after project completion.
In order to apply for the grant, the applicant must have at least 30% local shareholding with an annual turnover of not more than $100 million OR group employment size of not more than 200 employees & submit a commercialisation plan for the product. Application process and commercialisation plan template could be obtained from us.
Examples of eligible projects include product concepts that integrate a technology(s) (e.g. advanced materials etc) or a proprietary mechanism, and exhibit innovativeness and creativity.
Get in touch with us to find out how you can get your innovation commercialised.
