Let’s Join Together To Help Startup Hardware Businesses In This Incredible Time
While our $1M Credits Program to give up to 70% off laser for up to 1,000 startup hardware businesses and 100% off speed for orders fighting COVID-19 will help businesses survive to thrive through this unprecedented moment in human history, 10x this amount will REALLY help.
So we’re calling for companies who serve startup hardware businesses to partner with us to create a $10 Million Credits Program, by offering your products and/or services at deeply discounted rates (capped to $1M of discounts for up to 1,000 Ponoko customers) to help hardware businesses cut the costs of as many of their daily tools as possible.
And we’re asking startup hardware businesses to forward this to your key suppliers, inviting them to partner with us to help boost our credits program from $1 to $10 million, offering you a range of products and services you use everyday, at deeply discounted rates for a period of time.
What Types Of Companies Will Make Good Partners?
The best partners are those companies who are critical to the success of startup hardware businesses and are able to help up to 1,000 of them survive to thrive past this rocky time. We’d particularly like to partner if you supply to health and medical hardware businesses.
Hence, some great partners include:
- Suppliers of hardware design software, such as Autodesk/Fusion360, Dassualt/Solidworks, PTC/OnShape, etc.
- Suppliers of electronics components, such as Adafruit, Arrow, Avnet, Digikey, Mouser, Seeed, SparkFun, etc.
- PCB service providers, such as CircuitHub, PCBWay, Royal, Sunstone, Tempo, etc.

There are so many many more, and we’d love to hear from you.
