Want to Build Your Product?
If you’re a small business or home inventors looking to start a small business and have a product in mind, Mako Design + Invent is the perfect place to go to help you build your product. Unlike other firms who will listen to your idea and build any idea presented to them just for profit, Mako Design + Invents invites you to come in or schedule a free consultation with our product strategist, Ryan Davidson. The reason why Mako Design + Invent always schedules a free consultation is because even though we are at the foremost a product development firm, we believe in innovation and quality product designs.
When we have our consultations with clients, not only do we listen to your idea, but we offer immediate professional product consulting, advice, and insights as to how your product could possibly perform within your target market. This first step in the product development process for small businesses is vital because we take the effort to not only understand your product, but also your goals as a business, and offer strategy behind how your product idea can ultimately benefit your business. Additionally, an extremely important part of our consultation process is to offer and explain the importance of an NDA and intellectual property to our clients when we have our consultations.
Why Mako Design is the Best to Build Your Product
After the initial consultation, Mako Design will assist you along the way of explaining how our team will help develop and build your product for you. We will send over a customized proposal that goes over both your product idea and the services we will offer to help make your product. Along the line, we will schedule a further consultation between our office team, designers and engineers, to clearly map out the design process of your future product. The importance behind taking the extra effort in setting up additional meetings lies between Mako Design + Invents effort in both having clear communication between our clients, whilst helping to educate them on how their product will be expertly designed, and more about product design itself. In this way, not only do we deliver our high quality services, but we also help to educate and inform our clients about all aspects pertaining to their product project, whether it be how we will build your product, its components, and how it will perform as an innovative product and design.
Our Product Development Process for Small Businesses
After our team fully understands your product and business goals, our team will immediately begin the creation and development of your product. This includes sketching, concept design, 3D CAD rendering, electrical components and PCB development, prototyping and outsourcing the right materials to help perfectly build your product. Along the way of its design and creation, our designers regularly send updates to our office team who will send over design updates, packages and reports about how your product is coming along the way. This is extremely helpful for small businesses, because as a product development firm catering to start-ups and small businesses, we understand that timing is extremely important. Through clear communication as well as reports and design packages that let you feel, and see your product coming to life, you can track along the process of how we build your product design being made whilst you plan the strategy and debut of your business. After your products been completed, our team will provide the best recommendations for manufacturing, patents, and marketing that will help support and get your business started.
