44 Gaukel Street
Public Event: Advanced Prototyping Methods with Inertia @ AC Hardware Innovation Lab

The word prototype can mean many different things to different people. The range of function, appearance, and quality of a prototype can vary wildly. The type of prototype you will need to create is highly dependent on where you are in your product development journey and what your prototype will be used for. Is it to prove your idea, to entice investors, to gain customer feedback, for marketing and sales demonstrations? While prototypes can often be built “quick and dirty”, the process around prototyping should be methodical in order to maximize value and knowledge capture.

Please join the team from Inertia who will be sharing knowledge, experiences, and best practices around product prototyping – including topics like:

  • How to effectively plan prototypes into your project
  • What kind of help should you be expecting from your prototyping partner
  • How to build upon and retain knowledge when creating prototypes
  • How to gain valuable customer feedback from prototypes
  • Getting beyond your MVP and to building prototypes that your customer asks “When can I buy one?”
  • How to navigate the high volume prototype / low volume manufacturing chasm
  • Common mistakes and how to avoid them

Presenting from Inertia will be:

Ray Minato, President

Eleu Um, VP Product Development

Larry Zhou, VP Manufacturing

Brad Gall, VP Supply Chain
