A roadmap for makers
Tinkerers, inventors, hobbyists, creators, makers…whatever you call them, they’re our kind of people. Never content with the status quo, they’ve been a part of the Avnet story from the beginning. Today, Avnet is uniquely positioned to help makers on the verge of technology’s next big wonder.
From maker to start-up
Most products start out as a great idea on paper or screen. Turning that idea into reality and getting it to market before someone else does is fraught with pitfalls. It takes money, time and expertise. Avnet can help.
Our support includes all the resources you need to put plans into practice and make your idea a reality. Whether you need access to design services, parts for prototyping, contract manufacturers, or consultation on IP protection, marketing and financing – Avnet’s ecosystem is ready when you are.
Avnet brings together the communities and resources you need to get off the ground with the critical services required to scale. The end goal is a buttoned-up supply chain that’s ready to fill orders on day one.
Path to Prototype
Path to Prototype is a helpful guide designed to educate you as you take your hardware product from idea to prototype. Laid out as a board game, it comes with a series of cards that show the steps you'll need to complete the game and bring your product to market. Some cards provide helpful definitions you may not be aware of, some contain a few fun factoids - and some promise a few surprises along the way. Feel free to hang the game board on your wall or lay it out on a table so you can track your progress.Sign up today!
