Business Models for Hardware Startups

In this video you’ll learn about the pros and cons of various business models for hardware startups. Deciding on the business model for your startup is one of the most important decisions you will make.

Published on by John Teel

The main focus of this video is to teach you about one-time revenue versus recurring revenue and why you need a recurring element to your model. We’ll also look at the various types of recurring revenue you can add to a hardware startup.

NOTE: This video is actually just a single lesson from a in-depth video training course titled “How to Build a Hardware Company, Not Just a Hardware Product“. This course is available exclusively to members of the Hardware Academy.

Hi John, it is quite obvious and now popular Hardware as a Service, but can you share what are success factors of a HaaS model for B2C product ? In other words, to apply for HaaS for a B2C product, what kind of the product are suitable ? I try to search from Google, but no systematically study of this. Try to search to know from real experience on Quora, not much there. I noticed that if an IoT connected with Cloud-based content via a mobile app, you require people pay from credit card subscription via mobile app, Apple and Google classify those are digital sale and they take 30% of your revenue – a big chuck of money.

I finished course in electrical and electronic engineering, but I still lack some of the fundamentals of electronics. How do I design a product and build a prototype on a breadboard

John! Please release news mainly in text format. Audio and video are not easy to translate into native language for accurate understanding. Thank you.

Quite enjoyed it. Much appreciated all the effort in making the video. Just one thing though. I would have rephrased ‘Inkjet Printer Model’ rather than ‘Razor Blade Model’, just to be more recent. Nowadays, inkjets are cheap but manufacturers make all the money from expensive inks (very annoying and unfair). Thanks again.
