Dragon Innovation Hardware Hangout with Scott Miller:
So you've got a working prototype... now what? Taking your hardware product from garage to factory can be a stressful and costly step with countless unknowns, but it doesn't have to be that way! In this talk, Scott Miller can teach some of these crucial, yet hard-to-google manufacturing topics like how to apply design for manufacturing and assembly best practices, how to select a factory, how to design injection molded parts, how to decide upon retail margins, how to protect your IP, how to design quality control tests, how to navigate certifications, and more.
Scott Miller is the CEO and cofounder of Dragon Innovation, a manufacturing services and crowdfunding firm that helps makers go to market. The group has decades of experience in designing and manufacturing hardware-related products helping products like Pebble and MakerBot get to market. Scott Miller is a 10-year veteran of iRobot (maker of the Roomba) and a Partner at Bolt, a hardware accelerator located in Boston.
