Boston ENET: From Life Science / Tech Ideas to Profits with Product Development

Join us for a pre-meeting, self-pay networking dinner at Bertucci’s in Waltham before the start of this meeting.

Transforming ideas into profits is necessary to sustain a business, and the product development process is a critical component in transforming life science and tech ideas into profitable companies. The process is not always straightforward as marketplace demands, and other factors will shape the final product, but all of these are not known initially. The discovery process via research, trial and error, and important feedback from early adopters can be long, complex, and expensive, especially for an early-stage company that is bootstrapping or for any company with a short runway.

Tonight's panelists are experts in the product development field with expertise and experience to ease this process for early-stage startups. The panel of experts consists of consultants who offer end-to-end product development services and those with specialized services, as well as entrepreneurs who have made products and turned their idea into profits. Panelists will cover prototyping, design, engineering, manufacturing, and marketing services everything you need to develop a new product and bring it to the market successfully. They will also share tips of what worked, what did not work, lessons learned, and common pitfalls to avoid in the product development process while converting ideas into marketable and successful products.

Join us for inspiration and networking!
