Building your Business with an Advanced Manufacturer
So you’ve got the idea, maybe you’ve even built the design, the prototype, and a small business with it. How do you take that gem and move it closer to your vision of what it really could be?
This session is a case study and open Q&A with a product manufacturing company that has been in that exact spot. We will discuss the relationship between a startup and the advanced manufacturers that startup has worked with while also focusing on business philosophy, vendors, office space, raising capital, and even the culture of brand.
Walk away with a narrative of the growing pains of a business, and the strength Colorado has through innovation and collaboration.
