The Physical Product CEOs meetup group is for established entrepreneurs (founders/owners & executives) whose companies make a original physical products.
Charles was running his own Internet company for 15 year, till he sold it. He moved on to a physical product invention that he has had for a while and went from idea to fulfilling orders in just over a year. He experience include reducing cost of startup, launching on a tight budget and getting this done!
Eric has been running an Internet company for more than 15 years but got tired of sitting in front of computer monitors so he launched a company that makes a physical product. The time he spent in the shop building prototypes, launching on Kickstarter, sourcing has been thrilling venture for him and everyday he is looking forward to the next steps.
The Internet and software get all the glory. It's not all it's cracked up to be. I love to meet the builders and creators who are getting their hands dirty making and moving physical things! So let's get together and talk shop. Topics we'll discuss include new advancements in prototyping, 3D printing, patents, alternative funding such as crowdfunding, Chinese vs US manufacturing, inventory management, distribution nationally and internationally, retailing direct vs distributor/wholesalers , licensing, warehousing/fulfillment, shipping and logistics and much more...
