Critical Stage Webinar

You have done proof-of-concept testing and your product shows promise, but you need to refine the product, scale up processes (without lowering quality), and get the message out to more customers (potentially in new markets or industries). Find out where to go for help with things like: Mid-volume production, testing/validation, developing a more robust supply chain, getting assistance with workforce development, marketing, and funding. Learn about critical, and potentially business-saving topics, like how to successfully pitch your product to potential investors and what contract manufacturers are looking for before they will work with a new company.

If you have a product concept or prototype that solves a problem but aren’t sure how to transform it into a manufacturable product, then this workshop is for you.

Whether you’re still testing out your prototype or are ready to ramp up production, the path to success always has unforeseen challenges, and being prepared is crucial. That’s why we created FuzeHub’s “Hardware Prototyping Workshop,” a hands-on event where experts and mentors will guide you through the basics of hardware design and challenge you to optimize the manufacturability of your product. The goal is to provide steps to help you improve your product, reduce its cost, accelerate commercialization, and give your company the best chances for success.
