First Batch is a four month accelerator that connects the manufacturing community with entrepreneurs to take an idea you hold in your head to a product you hold in your hand- and sell.
Once an idea is born and the sketches are made, what next? Next is First Batch. The First Batch Program takes a select group of entrepreneurs through the process of refining prototypes, creating local connections, scaling up production and bringing a product to market. You’ll go beyond just the pitch and plug into the versatile Cincinnati manufacturing community. From prototype to customer feedback to sellable product in 16 weeks.
