Are you ready to start your own business and need startup help? We know you have a lot on your mind. There are so many needs with a new business: money to finance your project; help with registering your business; and, if you are an innovator with a new product or invention, a product development company to help you along in this process.
Startup Help for Product Development
Startup help for product development involves many steps and phases. Depending on the stage you are at, your invention may need initial concepts and sketches. Or you may need to put your initial concepts into a 3D program for testing. The next step would be 3D printing to build functioning prototypes that also help you evaluate ergonomics and styling.
From the beginning, startups need to consider the marketing aspect of their business. Images are essential for any kind of product promotion. You need renderings of the finished product for marketing material like business cards and a flyer or brochure. You will also need images for sell sheets to pitch your idea to companies for licencing or to sell it to retailers. And don’t forget your website and other advertising campaigns—a picture is worth a thousand words, so you need high-quality images here as well.
You may be thinking about patenting and protecting your idea. If so, patent drawings have to be generated from your 3D files. A patent requires a write-up or description for your project that matches all of the drawings in your patent pages. When you move onto the manufacturing step, you will need to obtain quotes for parts either in China or locally. For this step, you must have technical drawings and specs for your product and parts. It is critical that these be done by a mechanical engineer or industrial designer. These professionals know how to produce files that a factory or manufacturing company can read to quote the moulds and parts for your invention.
Some startups never go beyond this step. It takes a lot of effort to move from creating a product to pushing sales and getting that product on store shelves. If you are at this stage, our advice is to keep going! Make that push and get your product out there!
