Join us on Thursday for an exciting workshop featuring Lauren and David Heerschap of Brunton.
Prototype to Production – Turning Idea into Reality
When: Thursday, September 8th, 5:30-7 pm
Where: atWork Coworking, 2255 Brunton Court, Suite A
Lauren and David Heerschap are the new owners of Brunton as of November 2021. Their original business, Real Science Innovations, was based out of their garage in Durango, Colorado while they were full-time educators. They designed and made science teaching tools such as a water rocket launcher, groundwater models, field geology kits, and field geology measurement devices.
Driven by the challenges of teaching and wanting the best tools of the trade, they invented, prototyped, and patented a new model of the geologic compass that takes measurements more efficiently and intuitively. They approached Brunton with their idea in 2014, successfully negotiated a licensing agreement, and worked with Brunton to produce and market what is now the Brunton Axis Transit.
Their involvement grew into becoming employees of Brunton, followed by the opportunity to bring the company back home to Wyoming ownership and leadership.
Highlights/Goals of the workshop:
- Assessing the Who, What, Why, Where, and How of an Idea
- To Patent or Not To Patent…
- Is it Possible and Worth it to Prototype?
- Production Decisions
- Negotiation Time: Selling or Licensing Your Idea
- Scaling Up from Sample to Production Model
- Bringing it to Market
