A unique approach

The direct support of established premier OEMs, cooperating within Make Next Platform, to young or emerging OEMs (eOEMs) is unique. These OEMs know from their own experience what it takes to become and stay a successful equipment manufacturer. Therefore, they are better able than others in helping these eOEMs in getting their thing done.

The support of MNP is free of charge for the scale-ups, fully sponsored by the Founding Partners. The expected return is that these young companies will do their utmost to become the promised, brilliant player in the manufacturing industry. The support is provided on demand or offered on the initiative of MNP. The MNP-coach assigned is the linking pin between the young firm and the MNP-partners.   

Getting into the MNP’s Virtual Accelerator Program is not easy. Strict entry criteria and monitoring procedures will be applied to secure our “fit” and optimize the change for success.
