About Us

Our Mission

Why can’t 90% of small businesses make it past their first year? Our research shows that the majority small companies lack a cohesive product to market fit. Businesses in the technical industry tend to spend more time on product design than market research, often leading to the development of a product without a substantial market! So, how can a business succeed? By leveraging the lean startup methodology with Collabatory, of course! At Collabatory, we provide startups with low cost, reliable, and efficient physical prototypes. Our mission is to enable our clients to test out their markets early and often with an abundant supply of prototypes, provided by us. Our team of experienced engineers and product developers work with handpicked students at the University of Minnesota and various prototyping labs to keep costs minimal and quality optimal.
