make something that people actually want to buy. • Product design: I have an idea, now what’s next?

investments, and crowd-sourcing are great ways to access

possible. • Manufacturing: Seeing your final
product roll off the assembly line is a magical moment, but
there are things to watch out for so you get there in a
cost-effective way. • Protecting your idea: To
patent or not to patent, and other things you can do to
safeguard your idea. • The secrets to selling
