- How to do this? Assume a minimum investment of 5K to develop a crowdfunding worth prototype. Assume a minimum of 200K for industrialisation. Assume 3 years to really test the market. Decide what defines the success of a product. PR or sales.
- The good news Incubators & accelerators are growing in this space. (Nike & TechStars, BoltBoston, Highway1, Haxlr8r) Send a team to one of them. Itll be cheaper than running it yourself. Crowdfunding is a good way to test the water with a big brand.
