On October 4, Munro & Associates will join the Centrepolis Accelerator in celebrating the grand opening of its new manufacturing business accelerator space at Lawrence Technological University. The new Centrepolis Accelerator facility is a 6,300 square-foot, state-of-the-art business assistance center for physical product developers and manufacturing companies.
Centrepolis Accelerator clients will include manufacturing startups and existing companies looking to move up to the next level in product innovation. Services will include access to office space, co-working space, workshops, mentors, business planning services, and laboratories and equipment for digital product design and prototyping, as well as virtual reality and mixed reality labs.
Munro is offering Centrepolis Accelerator clients its Design Profit software to support product design and cost planning. Munro has previously provided formal Lean Product Design Assessments to Centrepolis Accelerator clients, which has reduced the complexity of products, reduced part count, and improved design for manufacturability and total product cost before going to market.
The Centrepolis Accelerator and Munro have also previously partnered on a series of events at Munro’s facility called “Leaning Your Product Design,” which has attracted many physical product developers and improved their product designs as a result.
