Let’s assume you’ve gone through multiple cycles of design updates, informed by your project goals and requirements, regulatory considerations, and your long-term business or clinical strategy. Now it’s time to select a technology platform and begin developing a fully functioning prototype of your innovation: your minimum viable product (MVP). In this session, we’ll look at technical and tactical considerations to ensure both the success of your MVP and your company’s long-term success and sustainability.

Topics covered will include:

  • Technology selection tradeoffs
  • Balancing development of your MVP and long-term product
  • First steps toward commercialization and ‘feature creep’
  • Medical device case examples
