This is the Physical Product group, organized by Charles and Eric.
Charles was running his own Internet company for 15 years before he sold it. He moved on to a physical product invention and went from idea to fulfilling orders in just over a year. His experience includes reducing startup costs, launching on a tight budget, and getting things done!
Eric has been running an Internet company for over 17 years but tired of sitting in front of computer monitors so he launched a company that makes a physical product. He built his own prototypes, launched on Kickstarter, and sells on Amazon and his website. He's planning a second Kickstarter project.
The Internet and software get all the glory. It's not all it's cracked up to be. We want to meet the builders and creators who are getting their hands' dirty making and moving physical things! So let's get together and talk shop. Topics we'll discuss include new advancements in prototyping, 3D printing, patents, alternative funding such as crowdfunding, Chinese vs US manufacturing, inventory management, distribution nationally and internationally, retailing direct vs distributor/wholesalers, licensing, warehousing/fulfillment, shipping and logistics and much more...
Please be aware, as the name suggests, we restrict this group to CEO/Executive, founder/owner-level decision-makers. The group is a service provider free zone, so NO consultants, service providers, Internet/computer software, accountants, etc.
This is not for beginners or just curious, there are other and better groups for you. To maintain the candor of our group meetings, we, unfortunately, cannot make any exceptions, even if you have been asked to join by an existing member. Thank you for understanding!
We look forward to the group growing and helping you grow.
