Don’t be the “fool” who walks around with an idea only.
Be the inventor with entrepreneurial chuzpe who walks around with several prototypes: the first and super ugly prototype, the nice and polished prototype, and the exciting new one that looks even worse ;-).
a) But how do you go about it? b) Do you outsource the initial engineering for the prototypes? c) Or could you do it yourself? If so, d) where is your laboratory? And, e) what kind of prototype is enough? Must your prototype f) already function as the final product or g) does the MVP methodology from web development apply for hardware as well? And last but not least, h) is your prototype the actual “blueprint” for the manufacture?
You see, there are lots of incredibly interesting questions with answers worth entrepreneurial gold.
At m3, we seek out to connect talents from the maker movement (hardware & digital startups) with the traditional but powerful manufacturing industry to answer such questions for the shared passion in innovation.
Another beauty of m3 is, that it’s an community initiative! Do you know of industry experts who could help answer these questions? Please let us know in the comments or via PM on Meetup.com. We will try everything to get the best of the best to each and every of our m3 events.
