Hardware Engineering + Prototyping

NewBoCo has worked with hundreds of entrepreneurs in the past few years, and one of the most challenging parts of building a business is the ability to prototype a product, including building early versions of hardware, software, and virtual reality products. Examples of the types of clients we work with are members of Vault Coworking and Iowa Startup Accelerator teams and organizations that focus on education, innovation, and/or entrepreneurship.
