Event description
Calling all entrepreneurs who have a desire to or interest in designing, building and mass manufacturing a hardware product

About this Event

Development of hardware products (electronics, mechanical, software) has challenges and complexities that don't apply to other types of products. This masterclass will cover the development process for hardware products, including details about each development stage, and how to maximise outcomes as well as reduce risks and costs.

By the end of the masterclass you will have a better understanding of:

  • The typical stages in the development of hardware products
  • The key activities, outputs and deliverables required at each stage
  • The importance of documenting product requirements early
  • How to maximise outcomes from your product development effort

There'll also be opportunities to network with other hardware innovators over refreshments.

Guest Speakers:

HardworX - Vela Georgiev

Tekt Industries - Matthew Adams

Outerspace Design - David Menzies
