  11. MFP Targets • “It works” • Off-the-shelf, 3d prints, handmade parts • BOM 10s of $ to thousands Financing • Bootstrapping, grants, FFF (50K) • People will think it’s the final product
  12. CFP Targets • “It looks real!” • Get ready to talk with suppliers Financing • Bootstrapping, Angel investors, Accelerators • VCs still unlikely
  13. DFM “No hardware plan survives contact with a factory” #1 rule of Lean hardware Targets • “Ready to roll” (& crowdfund) • Identify supplier, negotiate, reduce fees • Master your BOM... and your profits Financing • Bootstrapping, Angel investors, Accelerators • Crowd • VCs might listen (at least looking)

  17. Life of a Hardware Startup • A category leader will require large amounts of capital • Pick your battle: single hit, portfolio, platform or ecosystem • Success isn’t binary with hardware
