Module 9: Product Development and Sourcing
Presented by Frances Harder with Jacqueline Dadon-Snyder (CEO/Creative Director, Designer Consutling Co-Op)
Product development is the first step in the manufacturing process. This involves lots of research and inspiration. For the start-up entrepreneur it will mean a great deal of research and market analysis in order to come up with a product which will be in demand. Manufacturers and even large retailers all spend a great deal of money on product development and formulating new ideas.
