Rapid Prototyping is one key to making your ideas real.  Prototyping​ is a learning tool to get valuable feedback​ and a legal tool to establish a sense of ownership​ (patenting the expression of an idea).  Prototypes can reduce costs, refine concepts, expose faulty assumptions and identify overlooked requirements. However, prototyping and evaluation in the biomedical context aren’t always as simple as doing UX/UI design for an app.  Dealing with people and critical decision-making in healthcare contexts requires specialized thinking and strategies.

Developing a prototype or MVP is only the beginning, now you will have to sell it!  Getting innovations to target audiences involves strategy, significant investment, effective communication, robust networks, and some luck.  Having a solid proof-of-concept or MVP now requires an understanding of commercial strategies and business models.  What are your “value proposition” and your competitive advantage? Do you license your innovation, or do you build a company?  Will your company engage in manufacturing, distribution, or marketing? How will you fund your pathway?
