The fight against climate change will require innovative physical products and systems that operate reliably in the real world, many of which exist today as lab prototypes or pilot deployments. Workshop facilitator Synapse Product Development has spent decades developing products in a broad range of industries with partners ranging from startups to Fortune 100 companies. In this workshop, they will share their strategies for efficiently bringing these physical technologies from the lab to the real world through a rigorous hardware development process. Walk away with processes and the practical tools you’ll need to accomplish hardware development at a scale sufficient for global impact.
