Topic: Marketing and Sales

Join the SBDC & the Greater Springfield Chamber for this informative branding lunch & learn. Bringing new products to market…. Do you have an idea for a new product but don’t know where or how to start? Does it seem daunting and scary? You’re not alone. Every inventor feels this and because we believe in our product and ideas we succeed through perseverance and dedication. It’s not easy, but it is fun, especially when you see a product you invented sitting on a store or e-shelf. In this seminar, Wayne Lifshitz, inventor, serial entrepreneur, business advisor and venture capitalist will talk about product innovation, ideation and getting ideas from your head to paper to a factory and onto a shelf. You will walk away with an understanding of the product ideation lifecycle and action points to get your idea manufactured and sold; as well as, how to get it done yourself, when to outsource and how to find the resources you need. Who should attend?: *Inventors, small business owners, entrepreneurs, micropreneurs, and solopreneurs *Product developers, designers, hard-good manufacturers Please arrive on time for CBP classes and events.
