Tech248 Special Event at Centrepolis Accelerator Dec. 3

Wonder what that genius product idea that has been knocking around in your head might actually look like in real life? Curious about how to get that product to market?

Learn more about how to take a product from concept to prototype to market and connect with expert help at the Centrepolis Accelerator at Lawrence Technological University at the Tech248 special event on Dec. 3 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. Located in the Southfield City Centre, the Centrepolis Accelerator is an entrepreneur and business support asset specifically focused on companies that manufacture and commercialize a physical product.

This event is the first time the newly-opened Centrepolis Accelerator will host Tech248, the series of meetup events organized by Oakland County that brings together tech talent from the more than 2,000 IT and tech companies across Oakland County to network, learn, engage, and share.

The Centrepolis Accelerator, which opened officially on Oct. 4, 2019, is a 6,200 square-foot facility with coworking spaces, conference rooms, a premier manufacturing technology lab, training spaces, and expert support from the brightest minds in the manufacturing industry. Its affiliation with the prestigious Lawrence Technological University allows members access to the very latest in engineering, design, and product development techniques.

December’s Tech248 meetup is a great time to get an inside look at this state-of-the-art workspace, says Dan Radomski, director of the Centrepolis Accelerator.

“This is a great event for people that have a physical product idea and need help prototyping,” says Radomski. “We encourage people to bring their product idea or existing prototypes to the event for one-on-one prototyping and go-to-market advice.”

Oakland County tech businesses will get to see Michigan’s newest accelerator, says Greg Doyle, manager of the Oakland County One Stop Shop at the Oakland County Department of Economic Development & Community Affairs.

“The Centrepolis has a really nice focus on the industrial product, which matches with the technology side and the business demographic in Southeast Michigan, where we have a high concentration of engineers, production and manufacturing,” says Doyle. “I’m excited to have the Centrepolis Accelerator as another major piece of the entrepreneurial support system in Southeast Michigan and particularly in Oakland County.”

In addition to hearing a panel discussion, participating in networking, and touring the development lab, prototyping center, additive manufacturing lab, and virtual reality studio, Tech248 attendees can also bring their ideas and products to the event and get expert advice, says Radomski.
