The team from Product Insight led a workshop on physical product development with select finalists from Boston’s MassChallenge Accelerator. The workshop was designed to assist startups with understanding the basic product development process. Participants discussed the necessary steps in taking a concept to market and identified ways to address investor and buyer needs throughout the development cycle.

“Product Insight works with many startups to bring their new ideas to a successful launch in the marketplace,” stated Jim Varney, Director of Design at PI and workshop leader. “It’s exciting to work with MassChallenge and these talented entrepreneurs. We wish them all great success in their new ventures and hope our workshop was helpful to those looking to develop a product as part of their business plan.”
