Prototyping and Product Development Resources with Mohawk College

Product development is a hugely important and, at times, extremely costly process. Creating your proof-of-concept that you can test and validate helps bring you to the next stage of development in your entrepreneurial journey.

Prototyping and Product Development: Registration Details

This session is best for entrepreneurs who have completed early-stage prototyping and testing and are ready to create a proof-of-concept.

Access product development resources with Mohawk College

In this session, you will learn when it’s appropriate to move from design to product development and what kind of resources Mohawk College has to help you get there.

The product development stage helps transforms ideas into tangible products and positions your startup for long-term success. It is a key milestone that sets the foundation for growth and sustainability in the competitive business landscape.

Developing a proof-of-concept can demonstrate the feasibility and success of a particular idea or innovation. Your proof-of-concept allows you to address technical issues before committing further resources and enhances the iterative product development process. In addition, it helps you validate market demand for your target customers and showcases product viability to attract investment.

By successfully executing a proof-of-concept, you can position your startup for growth and increase your chances of building a sustainable and successful business.

Whether you’re working on software development, additive manufacturing, or digital health technology, Mohawk College may have a program that can support you at a fraction of the cost a private firm would.
