Guiding You on
Your Innovation Journey

At SKEG we pride ourselves as the pioneering force in the DeepTech African product development landscape. With a track record spanning 18 years, and more than 3000 projects, we are known as the go-to partner for transforming innovative ideas and scientific discoveries into fit-for-market products. Our diverse team of curious and passionate business and technical experts is known for an unrivaled culture of learning, and on a mission to solve the unsolvable.

Collaborate with Us

As a company that lives and breathes innovation, we are always looking for new and innovative ways to collaborate with our clients. At this time, we have four key operating frameworks:

Venture Building

An opportunity for inventors and SMMEs to partner with us to transform groundbreaking ideas into thriving ventures. This is where cutting-edge science and engineering merges with streamlined product development, business strategy, and a passion to impact tomorrow.

    Our Value-Driven Process

    Over the years, SKEG has developed an approach to realise innovative solutions in the form of a proprietary process that has its root in industry best practices.

    Discovery

    The SKEG development approach begins with an immersive Discovery phase, engaging all stakeholders to unpack valuable insights and challenge assumptions about the product, aiming to uncover its Decisive Competitive Edge (DCE). This structured exploration of the product's WHY paves the way for subsequent experimental prototyping and staged development, managing risks, identifying opportunities, and establishing a roadmap for success.

    home-page-our-value-driven-process-discovery-new

    Experimental prototyping

    In this phase, we address key technical and market risks through testing technology limitations and gathering valuable feedback from the target market. By assembling an experimental prototype, known as the Proof-of-Value (POV), we conduct an initial validation of the product's perceived value, setting the stage for detailed development.

    home-page-our-value-driven-process-experimental-prototyping-new

    Alpha prototyping

    In this phase, we design, manufacture, and test a market-representative prototype. Such a prototype encompasses detailed process, electronic, and mechanical design, along with comprehensive industrial design elements such as conceptualisation, styling, ergonomics, and final CAD design.

    home-page-our-value-driven-process-alpha-prototyping-new

    Beta prototyping

    In this phase, the focus is on building multiple prototypes for real-world consumer testing, aiming to gain detailed insights into user interactions, and valuable statistical information about product operations. Minor design updates may be implemented based on market feedback before concluding the Beta Phase and submitting the final design data pack for manufacturing.

    home-page-our-value-driven-process-beta-prototyping-new

    Industrialisation & Manufacture

    In this phase, we focus on finalising the pre-production process and manufacturing the final product in volume. This would include consideration to streamlined manufacturing operations, and supporting the product in the market.
