Proven Commercialization Success

Our client partners outperform industry averages in successful commercialization

Throughout product development, our sourcing and manufacturing team is involved to ensure smooth a commercialization process. Often the most difficult transition for companies to make is rethinking commercialization strategy, the stage roughly between engineering the product and marketing it — design for manufacturability (DFM), and decisions about materials, sourcing, tooling, certifications and shipping from factory to warehouse.

We often refer to product commercialization as “the last mile of innovation,” to emphasize that while it represents the home stretch, it’s as much a part of the product development process as ideating, insights and design. We can source the best manufacturer for your product and budget. You can rest assured knowing that our manufacturing team will work to ensure that your final product is perfect.

NOTTINGHAM SPIRK: Return On Innovation

The 95% commercialization solution

In the early 2000s, Rudy and the CWRU graduate students who had been assisting with his research brought the first working electrocardio monitoring vest to Nottingham Spirk (NS), a business innovation firm and neighbor to CWRU in Cleveland’s University Circle district. It was a Frankenstein prototype—15 pounds, bristling with wires, and nowhere near ready for clinical trials, much less manufacturing. But from that working model, NS’s designers and engineers built what came to be known as the EC VUE™, a lightweight, single-use vest with 252 sensors precisely spaced for optimal readings regardless of body type.
