Accelerators are this weeks focus of SOE. We drop by and speak to the guys at HAX in Shenzhen, to learn more about what a Hardware Accelerator can provide for Startups. This episode follows on from last week, which featured "Incubators" such as YBF Ventures. If you haven't seen that episode you should definitely check it out here: https://youtu.be/e9pWgGKbbZw

HAX is known as a "Hardware Accelerator" because it specifically deals with hardware based Startups only. Within that context, they provide equity and technical services, including a full prototyping space to refine your idea, in order to help bring your concept to market. Its called an "Accelerator" because it is a timed (usually about 3 months) intensive program where they will provide a soft landing into Shenzhen, setup your bank accounts, provide all sorts of personal assistance including translation services etc. They will provide a range of support staff like graphic designers, mechanical/electronic engineers, logistical and component sourcing assistance as well as help you to get access to investors and manufacturing partners. In exchange for all of this, they will take equity in your business, so its in their interest to help you achieve your goals.

A recent participant in their program is Australian Startup SmartShepherd. We would like to say a special thank you to Glenn Vassallo for helping out with this episode. You can learn more about their offerings by visiting https://www.smartshepherd.com.au
