One of our favorite things as a product development firm is providing advice to inventors who might need some insights in the different areas of inventing and creating a successful product. The Small Business Radio Show with Barry Moltz is a radio show and podcast that gives small businesses and startups helpful tips from topics that explain how to run a business or any situations that may occur from running a business. For this episode, Barry Moltz featured Mako Design and Invent’s very own present, Kevin Mako on the Small Business Radio Show once more to get expert advice on how either a small business or an independent inventor should go about creating and releasing a product.

Kevin Mako on the Small Business Radio Show

At Mako Design and Invent, we receive a lot of phones calls a day with questions from inventors about their product ideas, and many people usually are unaware of the actual process that goes behind creating and developing a product. Some of the main concerns and questions we receive typically revolve around the costs it takes to product a product. With our president, Kevin Mako on the Small Business Radio Show, a lot of these questions were able to be answered. One question we found really helpful and insightful was the last two questions focusing on the situation in which an inventor doesn’t have the ability to pay for their product all the way to production and in the case in which an inventor needs support to bring their product to life.

      These questions are super important to not only inventors, but to a product development firm such as Mako. Luckily, Barry Moltz focuses the episode and his segment with Kevin Mako on the Small Business Radio Show to focus on questions revolving around products, product distribution and costs, providing a great help and insight to the topic.

If you’re a new inventor or small business and are looking for an in-depth look into the world of business and great advice from the president of Mako Design and Invent, we highly recommend that everyone takes a small moment out of their day to check out this informative podcast, especially Kevin Makos’ segment for extensive knowledge on the product development process!

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?
