Synapse Product Development (www.synapse.com) provides a fully streamlined engineering and realization process for product development. They can take your concept from engineering development, manufacturing through introduction in the market.
Redwood will demystify the process and discuss the advantages of outsourcing many of processes related to product development such as ideation, building, and testing prototypes to oversight for manufacturing.
Redwood has been passionately developing technology and products for over 16 years. His career has primarily been split between technology startups and product development companies. In the startup space his focus has been the development of energy efficient hydrogen fuel-cells and fuel-processors. In the product development space he has designed products ranging from high efficiency stoves to high volume electromechanical devices. Although Redwood has worked on a broad range of technologies and processes, some areas of focus have been heat transfer, combustion, fluid dynamics, hydrogen fuel cells, micro–filtration, water purification and high volume manufacturing methods.
