Protolabs launches £50,000 scheme to turn cool ideas into reality


The Cool Idea Award gives applicants across Europe a chance to win help from Telford-based Protolabs – a manufacturer of custom prototypes and on-demand production parts – to get their bright ideas off the ground.

Protolabs, which has 3D printing, CNC machining and injection moulding facilities across Europe, is offering up to £50,000 of prototyping and manufacturing services every year under the scheme.

Protolabs’ design expert, Ray Faulkner, said the scheme had originally been established by the company in 2011 and had been hugely successful in helping inventors, entrepreneurs and small companies across the United States launch innovative new products.
