November 17 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pmFree
This event is going to be a part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week: https://www.genglobal.org/united-states/manufacturing-101-dvirc-hosted-nextfab
Manufacturing 101 is an opportunity to gain insights into working with manufacturers. The presentation will discuss the design for manufacturing, understanding supply chain development, and manufacturing practices. We will cover design and manufacturing jargon, how to determine best strategies for early production and scaled production, and share resources to help find regional manufacturing capabilities. By attending the presentation you will be given the opportunity to help define new supply chain development services.
Presenter: Andrew Dahlgren has been working with Delaware Valley Industrial Resource Center (DVIRC) on the Manufacturing Access Project to develop new strategies to connect designers, makers, and entrepreneurs to regional manufacturers. Over the past two years, they have learned about the growing number of entrepreneurs in the region and their desire to source regional manufacturing capabilities. In parallel, they have identified many barriers that have prevented entrepreneurs and manufacturers from working together. Manufacturing 101 is their first step to addressing and removing those barriers.
