When you need some extra brains.

We specialize in hardware product development engineering.

At Igor Institute, we’re dedicated to working with ambitious inventors, innovative researchers, and emerging companies. We help bring their concepts to life through quick-turn prototyping, collaborative research, and critical partner connections.

Engineering is at our core. We combine expertise in mechanical, electrical, and software/firmware engineering with a network of industry partners. We believe that the more you know, the better off you’ll be. Product development isn’t a mystical black box where ideas go in one side and designs come out the other; it’s a series of engineering iterations to find out what works for your product. That’s why we're focused on providing you with the insight needed to bring your product concept to life, as well as a firm understanding of what’s going on behind the scenes. After all, knowledge is power, and we want to give you the resources to bring your idea to life.


Hardware development isn't always hard, but it is complex.

Every product starts with a simple thought: “Let’s make the world better.” But taking that idea and bringing it to life isn’t always simple. There are a lot of balls in the air during the development process, and a successful launch requires some considerable juggling. And while juggling isn’t always a difficult task, it’s nice to know what the balls are and who you can toss them to.

At Igor, we don’t do it all: We prefer to stick to our engineering. But that’s alright, because we trust our partners to keep the rest of the balls in the air. We get to focus on what we do best, and you get to work with some of the best people that we know. (And we think that’s a pretty good deal.)
