Getting your product to market is one hell an undertaking.
Creating a comprehensive techpack is a good start, but it's only a piece of the puzzle.
You have to find the right supplier, get your samples made, and navigate through a quagmire of tests and regulations.
What if there was a reference manual that could guide you step-by-step through this process?
You're in luck.
