[NEW YORK 24 May 2011] PCH Accelerator, a service offered by PCH International, which is dedicated to bringing innovative hardware products to market, congratulates LARK on its launch at TechCrunch Disrupt in New York on May 24 2011.
LARK is an innovative silent waking system which uses the latest science and technology to improve sleep patterns and enhance sleep quality with a personalized sleep coach. PCH Accelerator helped bring LARK from concept to reality by offering the small start-up access to PCH's unique business model. PCH as a business has enabled the disruption of traditional supply chain models, contributing to the success of many of the world's largest technology brands.
"PCH has dramatically shortened the time-to-market for a wide range of consumer technology products. We offer our customers a unique end-to-end integrated supply chain solution, from product design through to a fulfillment business that offers customers the fastest development time with the longest global reach and the leanest supply chain inventories," said PCH CEO Liam Casey. "PCH Accelerator uses the same model that has led to the success of large companies, and tailors the same services for early hardware start-ups. We are excited about the potential and congratulate LARK on their successful launch." "We are delighted to formally launch this game-changing product today at TechCrunch," said LARK CEO and founder, Julia Hu. "For a first-time hardware entrepreneur, I did not anticipate how much work it would take from the concept stage to the final robust product. PCH Accelerator gave us a reality check and foresight into what needs to be done to make a great product, on a realistic schedule, advising us on each stage of the process. PCH gives start-ups the luxury of professional decision points and choosing the best of a few options."
PCH Accelerator will consider applicants with venture capital funding and an innovative hardware idea. Successful participants will enter a rigorous and carefully managed process comprising seven basic competence areas. Visit http://www.pchintl.com/accelerator for more details.
