How to develop your product idea

Oct. 22, 2021 by Tony Larsson

I’m an industrial design engineer and have run my own agency ( over the last 3 years helping small/medium sized businesses develop their physical products.

Over this time I have seen many projects fail and succeed and I have learned which strategies work (and which do not).

In this online lecture I share what I know so that you avoid repeating the mistakes of others and develop your product idea in an efficient manner.

Some of the topics I cover are:

  • How to validate an idea before investing a lot of time/money
  • What determines the development budget
  • How to build a strong team of contractors to handle development (things to look for when hiring)
  • Some basics around patents
  • Sourcing (mostly China)
  • Q&A


I hope you enjoy!
