Prototyping Lab — Greentown Boston
The place to build your hardware solution
This is where the magic happens. The 34,000-square-foot prototyping lab is home to startups working side by side to build the technologies that will shape a clean energy economy.
In the prototyping lab, you can take your technology from initial R&D to rapid prototyping while preparing for manufacturing and commercial development. We also offer a fully stocked machine shop with the key machinery hardware-focused climatetech and cleantech startups need.
This lab gives members space, freedom, and support. Take 100 square feet or take 1,000, and feel free to change it up next month. We’ll take care of your basic operational needs, including safety infrastructure, electricity access, waste disposal, and shipping and receiving. That frees you up to work on what really matters.
