Bill Fienup started his career in product development while still a student in grade school. Though his perpetual motion machines were doomed to failure, they sparked a lifelong passion for product development that persisted throughout his life. Now, as president of Catalyze Chicago, Bill runs an incubator for hardware startups where he uses his experience to help others bring their products to market. 

Follow along as we talk to Bill about:

  • Bringing a product to market
  • The risk inherent in the traditional secretive product design model
  • The gap between prototype and production
  • NDA vs MVP
  • Experimentation, failure, and iteration
  • The importance of losing
  • The benefits of community and diversity of talent
