About AlphaLab Gear
Alphalab Gear is a hardware and robotic startup accelerator that provides physical product companies with investment, mentorship and connections. We leverage our experience and network to help entrepreneurs make rapid progress through the early stages of product and customer development.
AlphaLab Gear uses the same principles and methodologies as AlphaLab, Pittsburgh's nationally-acclaimed startup accelerator, while incorporating unique expertise, education and mentorship in the areas of industrial and engineering design, advanced manufacturing, mass consumer distribution, and supply chain management.
AlphaLab Gear is a program of Innovation Works, one of the nation’s most active seed-stage investors.
The first cycle of companies will begin in October 2013 and launch at AlphaLab Demo Day in May 2014.
