Innovation is more than an idea

We are Hardware co-innovators.
Together with you and your team, we methodically validate innovations through iterative prototype building.

Our passion

Whether start-up, SME, corporate innovator, or venture builderwe collaborate to validate innovation: as creatives, inventors, engineers and testers.

We reduce risk and uncertainties: With you and your team, we support the refinement and testing of ideas and core assumptions - no matter at which stage of development you currently are.

In Innovation Process

Sustainability as a direct competitive advantage: We believe that true innovation must be sustainable, not just from an ecological point of view but also from a social and economic perspective. Incorporating sustainability aspects in the early stages of innovation isn’t just an enjoyable nice-to-have, it just makes sense.

For us? Pragmatism and the courage to experiment are what distinguish a good entrepreneur. We are more than just technicians. We operate right between pragmatic prototype building and venture building. Because the best prototype is worthless without the right vision for it.

How we work


[aɪˈdɪə ɪˈneɪblmənt æz ə ˈsɜːvɪs], neologism

Methodical prototyping, we're good at that. Experts in your industry? That's you! At alstrio, we collaborate with our clients. We form a joint project organization that empowers each other to achieve more, faster. In this process, we contribute methodological knowledge and pragmatic prototyping, and you and your team bring the industry-specific know-how.

Innovation doesn't have to be left to chance. Good ideas can be generated methodically and purposefully. We host workshops for you and your team to collectively brainstorm ideas and evaluate them within your framework. Grumpy process engineer or enthusiastic business developer - the more diverse the participation, the richer the variety of ideas!


Perfection is the enemy of progress. We believe that a good prototype should make you slightly embarrassed; otherwise, you've probably invested too much time and resources. Whether it's a cardboard mock-up or a high-fidelity prototype, we build pragmatic prototypes, demonstrators, test beds, and experiments. We validate assumptions and iteratively gather feedback to ensure the relevance of our work.

We are not special machine builders nor product developers, but we know how they operate. We accompany you on the path to a market-ready innovation and pass on the knowledge that has been built up in previous project phases. In doing so, we work closely with industrial partners or your product development team to ensure that all insights are delivered where they are needed.
