Navigating the Design to Manufacture Journey: Adventure Stories

24 March 2021—23 June 2021 | 12:00-13:30

Following the success of the first Navigating the Design to Manufacture series held in partnership with Product Design Scotland and the launch of our Guidebook (the result of extensive collaborative working), KTN are pleased to be back with a second series focusing on stories of those who have successfully navigated the challenging journey from Design to Manufacture.

Each month we’ll hear from three innovators who have traversed the perilous landscape: they’ll share tales of woe and glorious moments of success with a view to providing you with insights and tips for navigating the journey yourself.

As well as hearing from innovators, there will be an opportunity for Q&A and networking with other innovators, designers, manufacturers, funders, investors and professional services.

Strong relationships and diverse skills and connections are vital factor in the success of physical product start-ups – each event will provide a forum to strengthen collaborative working and initiate new relationships through breakout group conversations.

Speakers for each event will be announced on a monthly basis.
