Enabling Hardware Makers and Startups in Bringing Products to Market

GroupGets is partnering with Digi-Key, the world’s leading largest component distributor, to fund and promote hardware makers and startups.

Do you think you have what it takes to "Get MADE"?

You have so far survived the parts shortage and created a device to share with the rest of the world - but you may have run into the issue of component sourcing, promoting your device and shipping it to all of your potential customers. That's where Digi-Key and GroupGets step in! We are combining our powers to fund, promote, manufacture and distribute your device around the world!

Through the "Get MADE" program, GroupGets and DigiKey will cross promote qualifying devices through content, design, distribution and partial funding through DigiKey. Upon successful funding, GroupGets will work with the creators to manufacture the devices and then DigiKey will list the devices for sale on its website.

Eligibility Requirements to Apply for the Program

Demonstrate Your Device's Viability

We want to support makers that have demonstrated their commitment to the hustle! For a product to be "viable", we require one of the following:

  • A working prototype
  • Documentation of the product (product website, GitHub page, or other product resources)

Share Your Creativity

An electronic device can be one in a million: the right team just have to believe in it! We’re looking for devices that are new to the market, unique amongst its competitors, or an original idea that you created.

Tell Your Story as a Maker

We're interested in your story, not necessarily your degrees or resume. Simply answer these questions:

  • Why did you make this device?
  • Who is this device intended for?
  • What makes it standout amongst the rest?
