IdeaPrototype is a company specialising in affordable prototyping.

We create “funding prototypes” – aimed at proving concepts and exciting funders. This is the stage before “design for manufacture”.

IdeaPrototype was spun out of Sibanda & Zantwijk Patent Attorneys in 2007. The team includes:

– an industrial designer
– Paulo Lopes (patent attorney with MSc in Mechanical Engineering)
– Anthony van Zantwijk (patent attorney and Civil Engineer)

Our main business is protecting ideas, so trust us to maintain your invention confidential.
