Event description
The Process to Commercialize an Emerging Technology for Scale Quality, Performance and Profit

About this Event

It is often mistaken that the commercialization process begins with a design, a lab prototype and experimental testing. So often entrepreneurs and companies come with design, prototype and validation in hand without a customer or an understanding of their needs, consideration for manufacturing and quality nor any evaluation of a supply base! This workshop presents an alternative process that starts with an idea accompanied by the end customer’s specifications, a thorough review of the method for manufacturing, definition of a quality plan and an understanding of your validation requirements at the component and device level.

Topics include:

  • Consideration of your potential supply base and their capabilities
  • Planning for the path through the FDA approval process
  • Developing an iterative design
  • Testing
  • Scaling

A light lunch will be served. Parking is free in designated GIC parking spots.
