Making to Manufacturing

Friday, March 13
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Long Center
West Pincer Lounge
701 W Riverside Dr

We’re all makers in one form or another. We share a passion about building things. Some of us build things just for ourselves, others want to share the details of their creations with the world, and then there are the entrepreneurs who want to take this to the next level and start manufacturing their real products for sale at a larger scale.

Some of them will take the crowd-funding route, others do it in the privacy of their garage or under the wings of an incubator.

What we would like to explore is the path that needs to be traveled to go from Making to Manufacturing. What is the best way to prototype, what tools do you use, which partners do you select, where do you manufacture your product?
