Student Business Development

Are you working on developing an idea or product for a student business competition? If so, maybe we can help!

The Makers at M4Reactor have been designing and building everything from prototypes to fully functional products for years.  Our areas of expertise are in 2D and 3D Design, Prototyping Technologies (foam, laser cutting, 3D Printing, CNC Machining and more), Manufacturing Technologies, Programming and more!

Please understand that M4Reactor's role in this process is to provide expertise, knowledge and guidance.  It is your responsibility to follow through with recommendations and implementation.  M4Reactor will not make a prototype for you for a business competition.

  • We will be honest with you about the feasibility of both creating a prototype and taking your product to market. You may find out that the cost to produce your project far exceeds the price people are willing to pay.
  • M4Reactor is here to provide guidance on your product development. We cannot and will not do the work for you.
