VALIDATED ASSUMPTIONS AND REVISED HYPOTHESIS

There are innovative ideas in all of us, yet the process of making those ideas a reality are opaque. At each step of creating a product there are complications. Inventors are frustrated by the slow conversation with manufactures to validate what is possible and end up making misinformed decisions leading to poor results. All these factors slow down innovation and can limit whose ideas are made real.

How might we facilitate communication, build trust, accelerate and illuminate the process of manufacturing between inexperienced innovators / small businesses and manufactures, so that their ideas can efficiently and cost-effectively manifest?
