What is the cost of a typical project?

Project costs vary depending on the scope, but in general, projects will require hundreds of hours rather than tens of hours. Our hourly consulting rates run from $110 to $150.

How long does a typical project take to complete?

Every project is unique, but a typical project phase runs anywhere from two to six months. We take a staged development approach and multiple projects are needed to take a product from concept to market-ready.

What makes a project a good fit for NextFab’s Product Development services?

We specialize in early-stage product development and helping innovators turn novel ideas into successful hardware products. If you’ve identified a problem in the world where a new product can add value, there’s a great chance we can help.

What are NextFab’s areas of expertise?

We offer a full complement of hardware product design services, including electrical engineering, embedded system design, industrial design, and mechanical engineering. We take a hands-on approach and pair our design and engineering expertise with in-house prototyping capabilities. This allows us to build what we design and iterate quickly and efficiently.

Can we get a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) in place?

We prefer to have an initial non-confidential conversation before entering into an NDA. If it seems that we’re a good fit to help with your project, we have a standard NDA that we’d be glad to execute.

Do you offer services for equity in startup companies?

Typically no. Our standard engagements are fee-for-service. We only invest in startup companies through our RAPID Accelerator Program. Click here to learn more.
