Today is the official launch of the Minc Tech Lab, an unparalleled tech offering aimed at supporting Minc startups and entrepreneurs with hands-on help with technology build. The goal is to lower the threshold and get more people into starting tech companies.

The Minc Tech Lab offers everything within a physical lab, where you can build and 3D print products, getting help and support from experienced tech coaches in 1-on-1's, a wide range of partnership deals with service providers, and access to the Minc Tech Board of industry experts.

"The goal with the Minc Tech Lab is to lower the threshold for those wanting to start a tech company, but also help existing companies in the Incubator program with their product build! We especially welcome women, aspiring and diverse entrepreneurs, and startups to the Minc house to explore how our tech experts can help you realize your idea or help your startup." - Kinga Broel-Plater, Head of Incubator program at Minc

Minc has started to host monthly Tech Talks for our incubator companies on various topics, which will also be available to the broader public who want to learn about technology. On Wednesday the 3/2, Sebastian Otarola kicked-off the tech offering with an interactive Tech Talk for the Minc startups, presenting Visual prototyping tools and teaching the entrepreneurs how to build things blazing fast without using a single line of code. Today we showcase the workshop for free to an external crowd.

The Tech Lab has four tech-savvy specialist coaches onboard, who brings a wealth of experience ranging from building their own tech company, building tech products, doing IPO’s, rising VC capital, recruiting diverse teams, etc. The Tech Lab coaches are Vanja Tufvesson, Sebastian Otarola, Rickard Hansson, and Ulf Christiansson.

""We can help with hardware and software prototypes, MVPs, how to specify verification grants from a technology perspective but also how they should structure recruitment processes to be more inclusive. Some of these points transcend what you traditionally would expect from "technologists/engineers" which, in my opinion, makes it such a fascinating offer to have under the Minc roof"  - Sebastian Otarola Silva, Technology Advisor at Minc.

Minc is actively working on including people and genders from all walks of life to give them the knowledge and power to create — and ultimately inspire their peers to create. Technology shouldn't be something complex or obscure that requires a degree in computer science to understand. By lowering the technology threshold with ready-made hardware, software, and tools we offer a mindset that anything is possible to build – in no time, with zero budget and little to no prior experience.
