Our creativity providing invention help has propelled us into the world-renowned publication and will be gaining us the spotlight in the September 2017 issue. “It’s an honor to be named on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing private companies,” says Kevin Mako, Founder and President of Mako Design + Invent. “Over the years, we’ve tried to create the best in the country with our designers coming from top companies in North America.

MAKO’s Spot on the Inc 5000 List

Their were a number of requirements to meet in order to qualify for the list such as having revenue no less than $2,000,000 in 2016, having revenue no less than $100, 000 in 2013, and being a privately owned company. Our performance over the years providing invention help services, and through out this the meticulous review process, also gained us the #22 spot for Top Manufacturing companies, and the #23 spot for the Top Austin companies. In the grand scheme, the list is considered a hallmark of entrepreneurial success among American private companies. The Founders and CEOs on this list tell Inc. Magazine they think determination, risk taking and vision were the keys to their success and is arguably the most persuasive evidence that the American Dream is still alive. At our firm, we see it’s still alive every day by providing invention help to our aspiring inventor clients who are chasing their dreams. When they succeed, we succeed and that’s why we’ve been named to this prestigious list.

Just a few months ago, MAKO was also named #69 on the Entrepreneur 360 list for being a leading company in driving innovation, developing entrepreneurship, and providing invention help and tremendous value for clients.

From design to manufacturing your prototype, research the players involved

If you are hiring a professional design and development firm to create your product, do some research before selecting the firm. This also applies to the manufacturing stage of your product. You may need to work with multiple manufacturers for various parts of your product. Does the factory incorporate alternative sources of energy such as solar or wind into the manufacturing process? Are outputs and waste managed responsibly? Does it take steps to offset the CO2 produced during manufacturing?
