Product Foundry is an intensive innovation programme to help you develop your product ideas through hands-on design, making and testing.
From 3D printing to user testing, you’ll be introduced to core skills in our weekly sessions, and then have supported time in our advanced prototyping workshop to further develop your skills, and your product ideas to help enhance your commercial impact.
You’ll be working with a group of 8-10 peers all developing early-stage prototypes; testing ideas, functionality and user experience. You’ll learn how to generate design solutions, test your ideas, and create product specifications.
If you are an established company looking to innovate and develop a product to help your business grow, then this programme could be for you.
