Join the Arrow Certification program

Resources for design and production

Does your project have an electronic (or software) component? Build your most daring visions with engineering feedback, design tools, product savings, and more. And, if you’re an IoT or software entrepreneur, you’ll get exclusive access to Watson IoT from our program partner IBM.

Certification from an expert

Get connected with a team of Arrow engineers for a full Bill of Materials (BOM) and Design-for-Manufacturing (DFM) review—and best of all, receive a certified badge on your campaign page that demonstrates your market-readiness and helps you win backers’ trust.

A chance at $1M in Flash Funding

Arrow is offering flash funding (a huge, one-time cash award) to eligible certified campaigners. Follow in the footsteps of Playdate, Noria, FenSens and other campaigners who’ve received a share of $1M.
