Building the Dream: Transforming Ideas into Reality, a workshop with global sales, marketing, and product management executive, Jim Chi.

How to do I make this? Join us for a nuts-and-bolts look at how to turn your idea into a reality. As you prototype a product then scale to go to market, how do you approach manufacturing and operations? Learn what costs to factor in, from financing to procurement of materials and distribution. We’ll closely examine sourcing, supply chain management, manufacturing and more. You don’t get to re-price something after you go to market. Learn to approach this the right way, with a comprehensive assessment of all costs, including planning for additional factors that didn’t quite pan out.

Global sales, marketing and product management executive, Jim Chi, has held leadership roles with notable brands and retailers like Nike, Home Depot, and Mohawk Industries. Jim started his career in product development and has led teams in marketing, sales, global sourcing, product management and operations. The key to his success across multiple industries has been using analytic-driven decisions as the foundation for creative business solutions. He is a firm believer in balancing the art of product creation and the science of product management. Currently working with early-stage apparel brands, Jim also consults for private equity firms restructuring and scaling up brands in their portfolio.

This workshop will take place at the Wacom Experience Center.
