Startup

You have a great idea and are looking for opportunities to develop your product in China.

 

Your challenge is to determine your development budget, starting with the design, Bill Of Materials, prototyping and determining the size of your first production batch. Only a small percentage of startups make it to production, let alone build business continuity.

 

Quality factories in China work with high minimum order quantities. Titoma has spent the last 15 years developing close relations with these factories by proving itself a partner which consistently places the recurring orders they are looking for. This in turn means that we need to work with clients with proven sales records.

 

We work with established companies

 

We work with companies that have a certain maturity level, meaning a validated business model and the proper funding to invest in product development, inventory and marketing. Our complete package of design, development and production ramp-up services generally starts at US$ 150,000.

 

If you are still in the process of building a prototype, fine tuning your business model and finding funding for your business, we recommend you pass those milestones first.

If it’s your first time bringing a product to market we recommend you read the classic “From Concept to Consumer: How to Turn Ideas Into Money” by Phil Baker our man in California.

 

To stay focused, before you start prototyping we recommend that you fill out the following form to define your product vision.

 

If you are trying to get a first electronic prototype built you can find help at a local makerspace. Its very important to make your prototype public to gather as much user feedback as possible, you will find the lean product validation method useful.

 

If you are considering doing a campaign on Kickstarter or Indiegogo our article “$100K is not enough” will provide some insight. You can also look for funding opportunities on AngelList.

 

If you and your team are ready to camp out in China for a year to learn the manufacturing process yourself contact HAX, the hardware accelerator in ShenZhen.

 

If you have completed your design and are looking for competitive factory bids you may contact Howell Wang at our sister company Insight international, who has worked with over 80 startups ranging from Nest to Whistle. His factory audits start at $700.

 

Do give us a call when you are looking for a partner to develop your second generation product.
