Josef Průša will open the doors of PrusaLab to promising startups

Josef Průša, a world-successful entrepreneur in the field of three-dimensional printing, is once again launching an acceleration program for young companies focusing on the development of innovative products. For a period of six months, it will provide them with unlimited access to the facilities of the hi-tech workshop in Prague’s Holešovice, technological consulting and financial support worth up to hundreds of thousands of crowns according to the needs of the project. The unique advantage of the program is its focus on hardware development.

PrusaLab is able to move the idea from the drawing to the stage of a functional prototype, which opens the way for projects to further investment, or straight to production. In addition to the general call, this year they are opening a special category for projects that address the topic of sustainability.

The program is open to product projects with a commercial intention, which are already in the phase of sharp development, but also those in the phase of mere idea.
Several projects will be selected from the selection round, which is now open until 12 December, with which Josef Průša will share premises, machines, technological experts and strategic contacts. In addition to funding for prototyping, projects can apply for additional investments after successfully completing the accelerator.

At the beginning of the year, a pilot year of the accelerator took place, in which 92 teams signed up. The winning projects were Vanilla Robotics by Tomáš Krivda and Jan Sedláček, developing autonomous delivery robots, and ultralight bicycle saddles made using 3D printing under the Posedla brand by Martin Řípa and Jiří Dužár. Simultaneously with them, the project of an electromagnetic mirror by the artist Kryštof Brůha was also supported in the form of an artistic grant.

Autonomní přepravní roboti od Va­nil­la Ro­bo­tics thanks to their participation in the accelerator, they could appear on the streets of Prague as early as next year. Prusalab’s technological background made it possible to test different robot variants much faster and cheaper than before. Originally a weekend hobby, it has been transformed into an ambitious project, with which you can playfully compete with world leaders in the field of autonomous vehicles.

Martin Řípa and Jiří Dužár from the startup are also celebrating success Po­sed­la. Their locally manufactured bespoke bicycle saddles received another investment worth CZK 15 million from Josef Průša. Industrial 3D printing plays a key role in development and subsequent production. The connection with Prusalab thus opened the way not only to acquiring long-term partners, but also unique know-how. The company is currently preparing the first models that will be launched on the Czech market in the spring of 2022.
