  • I got 99 problems User research Product design Patent application Technology choices (hardware & embedded software) Web technology choices UX design Pre-industrialisation Certification Financing Sales & Marketing e-commerce Distribution / Warehousing Sales growth
  • These happen online User research Product design Patent application Technology choices (hardware & embedded software) Web technology choices UX design Pre-industrialisation Certification Financing Sales & Marketing e-commerce Distribution / Warehousing Sales growth
  • These cost a lot of money User research Product design Patent application Technology choices (hardware & embedded software) Web technology choices UX design Pre-industrialisation Certification Financing Sales & Marketing e-commerce Distribution / Warehousing Sales growth
  • There is no money Seed / Grants Incubators Crowdfunding Angels Exit What you actually need 0 50K 100K 500K 1M VCs
  • Technology choices are like a**holes. Everyones got one and everyone thinks everyone elses stinks.

  • Your software doesnt live in isolation to the product it lives in.
  • RRP & BoM It doesnt matter if its the right technology if noone wants to buy it.
  • Unboxing It doesnt matter if its the right technology if your grandmother cant set it up or someone cant set it up for their grandmother within 5 minutes.
  • Long-term usage It doesnt matter if its the right technology if its a novelty that wears off and it ends up in a drawer. You wont get any data then.
  • The data question
  • Early days
  • You are only one click away. An Arduino costs less than $20 and is the most documented platform for learning with no hardware experience. The best ideas come from software people willing to cross into hardware on the cheap. Use crowdfunding to test the appetite for an idea, then quit your day job.
