As a team of first time founders, the only we knew going in was that 'hardware is hard', so we relied on the Dragon team to help us with our quality plan, prepare for our first site visit, and oversee critical initial production runs. Their quality plan helped our team institutionalize quality as a fundamental metric of manufacturing and understand how to measure and manage to our specifications. We would recommend Dragon to any team that wants an expert partner to navigate the manufacturing process.
