We are pleased to announce a workshop co-sponsored by the Massachusetts Small Business Development Center Network
8 Steps To Successful Inventing
So you want to turn your latest creative product idea into a successful business venture... now what? There is so much conflicting information out there, how do you know what to do or where to begin? If these are your questions, and you want to save yourself time, money, aggravation and avoid the pitfalls, your first step is to join us for this one-and-a-half-hour workshop.
An information-rich, tip-filled session will fill in the blanks and address the pressing issues that separate successful ventures from those that fall by the wayside. For inventors, entrepreneurs, start-ups, creative artists, anyone with a new idea for a product or service regardless of prior experience.
8 simple tried and true steps will help you navigate through the early stage idea validation process. Session includes:
• Tips, case studies, lessons learned from years of being in the trenches.
• Things you can't learn in school... but need to know before you start investing.
• Straight talk... decoding the invention development process.
• Insights into the kinds of help you need to validate your concept.
• Avoiding the most common mistakes that can prematurely doom a venture.
• How to realistically evaluate your product idea and prospects.
