Have you got an idea for a product that you'd like to design and launch yourself? There's never been a better time for design entrepreneurs. Thanks to the internet, everything from manufacturing to marketing, from prototyping to packaging--all fields once dominated by deep-pocketed corporations--is now accessible to the lone designer, even one with a small budget.
But to design, develop and launch your own product will still require plenty of work, and it's best to work smart. You could benefit from the decades' worth of experience from a guy who's launched numerous products, from toys to tools, since the early '90s.
Core77 is excited to announce the upcoming launch of our new webinar series with pro DIYer and YouTube sensation Jimmy DiResta, beginning September 29th. "Mockup to Market with Jimmy DiResta'' is a five-part webinar series condensing years of experience into an actionable roadmap for design entrepreneurs and inventors. The series will present viewers with highly distilled insights and practical how-tos that will stoke creative fires, propelling both creator and concept along an arc from drawing board to market.
Each episode will feature Jimmy DiResta in conversation with Core77 Senior Editor Rain Noe covering various aspects of the product design and development journey, from brainstorming to prototyping to marketing and sales. This live webinar is a rare opportunity to receive in-depth, hard-won design, prototyping, production and business advice from a world-renowned, self-made designer/builder. You'll also have an opportunity to pose specific questions to Jimmy; we'll choose the best-of-the-best for a live Q&A at the end of each episode.
The series is sponsored by Xometry, who operate the leading online manufacturing marketplace. Their service connects people who make things with people who need things made, allowing both sides to interact, transact and collaborate to get things built faster, better, and more affordably.
Episodes will air on Wednesdays at 11AM EDT, from September 29th to October 27th.
In addition to being part of the live Q&A sessions, registered participants will have access to the videos after the event to review and deepen their impact.
