By definition, innovators are unique and creative people. They bring different backgrounds - including experience, training and education - to the new product development process. They also have different objectives for their product, service or improvement opportunity.
GPRC's CRI provides a range of professional services to assist innovative people and companies to advance new products & services into the marketplace. Initial meetings and introductory services are provided free of charge.
Generally our first meeting (60 minutes) with a client is primarlily to explore where you are in the innovation process, through a detailed discussion process we begin to understand where you need help to move your idea forward. The four key areas we work the idea through are:
· Innovations and Ideas - which consist largely of Concept Development, and Intellectual Property
· Technical Feasibility - initial product assessment and performance, certification, engineering resources and networks
· Market Feasibility - market discovery, creation and entry; access to market development information
· Financial Viability - will this opportunity generate adequate returns to justify investing in?
