About Product QuickStart
Thank you for your interest in us. It’s very nice to meet you. We have a passion for product development, and we would love to help you develop and launch your product. Product QuickStart has successfully launched products for many of our clients. Check out some of our case study successes.
We created Product QuickStart out of a passion to meet the product development, prototyping, and manufacturing needs of small to mid-sized companies, entrepreneurs, and start-ups. There is no shortage of engineers, marketing people, and ‘submission companies’ that will gladly take your money and get you nowhere – that’s not us. Our goal is to be honest operators, and we do everything we can to help our clients understand what they are getting into and their odds of success.
It’s not uncommon for us to advise our potential clients that they shouldn’t spend any more money (with us or anyone else). If we don’t see a potential path to success for you or your company, we will tell you.
We’ve spent much of our careers developing, manufacturing, and launching new products for major brands and companies like the Home Depot, Procter & Gamble, the Coca Cola Company, and Black & Decker. And, we’ve had a blast doing it!
But, even though we love innovating with big name companies, we’ve always had a special enthusiasm for working with smaller companies, entrepreneurs and start-up teams that are full of passion, ambition, and great ideas. That’s why we created Product QuickStart… both to feed our professional passion, and to provide world class product development and manufacturing services to small and mid-sized companies, inventor-entrepreneurs, and start-ups.
Product QuickStart is focused specifically around the needs of smaller companies and entrepreneurs so we can offer you, our client, the most cost effective and streamlined product development and manufacturing services – but we offer decades of experience developing and launching products for some of the world’s most powerful and respected brands.
Our bottom line? If you are building a product business that you are passionate about, we would love to talk to you. Let’s combine our passion with yours to launch a fantastic product business!
Product QuickStart versus the Other Guys.
Product QuickStart: Work with a Business Owner.
At Product QuickStart, you will work directly with an owner in the business. We take pride in our work, and it shows. Each client gets personal attention from a principal in the company.
The Other Guys: Can I speak to your manager?
Or, how about your manager’s manager? With many product development companies, there are many layers of management, and it’s not even clear if the owners know anything about your project, how it’s going, or if it’s on a path to success.
Product QuickStart: A Small, Efficient Team.
The Product QuickStart Team is intentionally small. We employ a combination of full-time staff and trusted partner specialists. This approach helps us keep our overhead low while providing you with the best talent available.
The Other Guys: Who am I paying for?
An open secret about traditional development firms is that all of those people have to be paid every month, whether they are busy or not. While it may be tempting to work with a large team, bear in mind that you are likely paying the overhead for a lot of people who aren’t actually working on your product.
Product QuickStart: Experience. No Exceptions.
It takes a long time to become great at product development. Everyone on the Product QuickStart team, including our trusted partners, has decades of experience with product development. No posers here.
The Other Guys: Was that dude an intern?
Traditional product development firms may have a few senior people who sell you on hiring them, but then don’t actually work on your project. At the end of the day, you may not know whether your product is being designed by an intern.
