FAQ's

Can we be incubated at any location?

The incubator is offered both at NextFab’s South Philadelphia location (2025 Washington Ave) and Wilmington, DE location (501-509 N. Tatnall Street). At this time, the incubator program is not offered at our North Philadelphia location, but you still have access to its machines and classes.

What type of space do you have available?

We offer three types of spaces at our locations:

Dedicated desks, an ideal low-cost solution for solopreneurs interested in having their own desk, business address, and concierge postal mail service.

Office space for teams in need of private office space to work on and store projects.

Light fabrication and assembly area, a raw workspace where you can build your products and prototypes.

Will I get 24/7 access to my dedicated desk, office, and/or workspace?

Yes, you will have 24/7 access to your space. Your access to NextFab’s advanced manufacturing equipment and workshops is limited to NextFab’s regular business hours.

What is NextFab looking for in an incubator applicant?

We are looking for hardware entrepreneurs who are beyond the idea stage, are already making sales, and are looking forward to establishing themselves in their respective fields. Ideally, these individuals will become active members in our community and will collaborate closely with our larger membership base.

Does my company need to be incorporated?

Yes! You should also obtain and keep in force a general liability insurance with a combined single limit of no less than $1,000,000 per occurrence for bodily injury and property damage insuring both NextFab and yourself against liability arising out of use, occupancy, and maintenance of your space at NextFab.
