With Ping we are supported and funded by the CRL hardware accelerator in London, where we are based at since 2016. The facilities here are focused and specifically designed for startups that involve physical products. This way we have amazing workshops and capable staff at our hands, which we can use for prototyping and small batch production. In March 2017 we are launching our beta program involving 20 different home sharing hosts and small hotels across Europe and the US. In order to manufacture the first 20 packages for our trial period, we used the in-house facilities including CNC machines.
