The team at Dragon Innovation has been breaking new ground in hardware since the 1980s. That’s why we can say with confidence that the way new products come to life is changing. It’s never been easier to develop a prototype and get potential customers excited about that thing you want to build. But turning passion and an innovative idea into finished products at consumer scale is still really hard.
That’s where we come in.
“If you think of an alphabet where A is the idea and Z is shipping, crowdfunding is a C or D.”
Scott N. Miller Founder & CEO of Dragon Innovation
We review the Bill of Materials methodically; make sure factory markup, labor, packaging, scrap, and every little detail is included, estimate tooling, and all the other costs that can come up along the way. Armed with that, Makers know what it will take to go from one prototype to finished products.
Join a community of the best Makers on the planet who are posting their projects on the only site that is just for hardware. Test product/market fit, create early buzz, and raise funds from a crowd of passionate hardware heads.
As much as the world is changing, hardware is still hard when it comes to manufacturing. Take advantage of our deep experience and on-the-ground Far East team to navigate this tricky part of the journey. Dragon will make sure that you deliver.
We love innovative hardware as much as you. Bringing new products to life is fun, and getting your work into the hands of customers who crave it is what it’s all about.
“During the ﬁnal stages of product design, we have the Dragon team come in to assess manufacturability and assembly. They’ve been very helpful and made our products strong. Dragon Innovation can act as a trailguide to help navigate the decisions and drama of producing hardware.”
“Dragon helped us take our crowdfunding success and translate it into shipping more than 100,000 Pebbles in just over a year. They provided critical support on-the-ground in China and sourced excellent suppliers.”
“We really had no concept as to the manufacturing process. Thankfully, Dragon was keen on educating us - helping us identify gaps in our design, and guiding us on the full manufacturing process from inception to fulﬁllment.”
“If you’re looking to produce stuff at scale, you have to realize that the manufacturing process is hard. Dragon helped us climb the manufacturing learning curve with their expertise.”
“There is no way we would have been able to mass produce and launch Sifteo cubes without Dragon. Hardware is hard. Harder than you think. You need a seasoned hand to get you off the ground. Trust me. Call Dragon.”
