Hey everyone!

Very excited, I received my prototype last week and now it's time to accelerate and launch this new product I invented!

- trying to take things one day at a time -

My design company is able to source a mfg for me, this will cost approx $4000.

I'm not sure if I take this on myself, I don't know anything about this but can learn quickly. I don't want to make a mistake though as I would like a US mfg and to save money, outsource some minor parts from China.

I would greatly appreciate advice from anyone who has brought a physical product to market, do I hire my design team who already has this expertise or do it myself?

Thank you!

Hi Lisa,

Your design company wants 4k just to find the supplier???

I recently started my company 303 Global. We help companies in your exact situation. We can identify suppliers and help you all the way through import. And we certainly dont have any crazy sourcing fees.

If your interested, I would be happy to sign an NDA and discuss your project.

Heck if I know, but please save your money and gather pre-orders with your prototype. The last thing you want to do is spend a bunch of money and have no email/order list. Have you been working on this?
