Gearing up to launch a new product or grow an existing product line? Learn how to take the next steps so you can successfully manufacture.
Join us for our Maker Meetup, Thursday June 27, to discuss sourcing techniques and manufacturing knowledge to scale your business. We’ve invited Robert Roecklein, SPSM2 from Roeck Engineering and Supply, to talk with you about how you can help your product grow legs. Robert will share USA-focused resources and our very own Portland Made member, Brad Swift from Portland Bee Balm will share his success story for a soon-to-be-released product he took the leap with, reaching out for specialized help from a manufacturer.
Presentation to include:
- Product design process
- Company readiness
- Finding the right source or manufacturer
- Advice on working with suppliers
- Brief comments on international sourcing
- Shared experience from a fellow Portland Made member
At the end of the presentation, we’ll have the opportunity to tour Portland Bee Balm’s facility, located in The Iron Fireman building.
6pm: Arrive, grab a drink
