Summit Speaker Series: Prototyping Your Outdoor Product
Join us for breakfast and an outdoor industry business discussion on Wednesday, April 1st at the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.
Turning an idea into a functioning product that is sales-ready can be an exciting, complex process, and prototyping is a critical phase in the effort. Our panel of experts will share their experiences in prototyping:
Thinking it through – What are the steps you should take before prototyping begins
Cautionary tales – Just because you can 3D print it doesn’t mean you can manufacture it
Best practices – Maximizing creativity while controlling costs
Options – Low volume prototype tooling vs high volume production tooling, working with higher education, and more
We’ll hear from:
Theodore Espiritu, Founder and Creative Director, Espiritu
Taylor Foss, Engineering Manager of the Weber State University Concept Center
Nicholina Womack, CEO of FutureINDesign
- Chase Anderson, Program Coordinator of the Outdoor Product Design & Development program at Utah State University
