Abstract

This project evaluated the needs of hardware startups in the Rhône-Alpes region and assessed Bel Air Camp’s Accompagnement Program. Our interviews and surveys of hardware startups determined that each startup is unique, and funding is their greatest challenge. We recommend that the Accompagnement Program provide fundraising services in addition to product and business development services à la carte. Ultimately, these recommendations provided Bel Air Camp with a suggested framework of services that will increase the effectiveness of the Accompagnement Program - assisting Bel Air Camp in becoming the hub of hardware in the Rhône-Alpes region.
