We know that Aotearoa’s many innovators and entrepreneurs share similar challenges when bringing a new product to the world. One of the best ways to overcome them is by learning from your peers and those who have been successful in the past.
So we’ve asked some of New Zealand’s successful business leaders and experts to share advice, first-hand experience and stories about bringing their products to life, and guiding them towards international success.
Whether you're a new business owner looking for guidance, or a seasoned pro looking to find possible blind spots, Product360 will provide you with a comprehensive overview of what you need to know about product commercialisation.
The Product360 online library is split into eight core sections, covering all aspects of what we call the ‘commercialisation journey’ - from product development and design, right through to sales and supply chain. Alongside each video is a set of online resources and links to further support, so you can dig deeper into each topic and get a helping hand if required.
Whatever challenge you’re facing, there’s a good chance our business leaders and experts have been through something similar and have some wisdom to share.
