Productizing in Portugal for Hardware Startups

Productizing in Portugal for Hardware Startups

Productized helps entrepreneurs find the best partners, manufacturers and other solution providers most suited to get your products from concept to client.

We will explore the local ecosystem and the established design, engineering and industrial capabilities we have at our door. We aim to closer the gap and allow our amazing entrepreneurial community to meet the local experts that can help them create the first prototypes or to build competitive production supply chains to their products and business.

We are seated on top of a gold mine and the digging has just started! So join us and be part of this evolution (or revolution).

The full day workshop is titled “Hardware Startups: MADE IN PORTUGAL” and will be divided into 5 sessions, (Think, Design, Engineer, Manufacture, Distribute), so we make sure to cover all the different phases hardware entrepreneurs are challenged with, when turning ideas into desirable, feasible and available products.

The best part?? Local top performers, high achievers and experienced partners from industry and services will join us to make sure all your questions are answered.
What questions? Well, the ones we believe almost every creator encounters during the hardware creation process, namely:

• Why are local partners so important for HW startups? Speed? Communication? Ex-house technical support and guidance? Flexibility? IP Protection (should we stop here?)

• What different kinds of expertise are there? Which one is the right one for my project?

• How do I approach a manufacturer (or other solution provider) and what kind of documentation do I need?

• What do I have to contribute as a hardware creator and how do I ensure that my project will be successful?

We know that making hardware is hard, but Talk by Talk, Produtized hopes to give you the tools, the knowledge and the connections that startups and entrepreneurs just like you need to succeed. See you on 31st of May!
