The goal is to help individuals improve their manufacturing readiness, and prepare for working with contract manufacturers on the high-volume production of their products.
Following the interactive morning instructional session, attendees will have an opportunity to meet 1:1 with instructors via Zoom from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM. Participants also will be eligible for a follow-on “Design Sprint” program to help create a prototype that improves manufacturing readiness.
Instructors for this program include:
- Brian Hilton and Mark Walluk from the RIT Center of Excellence in Advanced & Sustainable Manufacturing
- Ben Zombek from BZ Design
- Annette Brenner from NextCorps Growth Services which serves as a Manufacturing Extension Partner (MEP)
- Mike Riedlinger, from the NextCorps Hardware Scaleup Program.
