PROCESS OF INNOVATION
It all begins with listening to those who live in extreme poverty everyday to hear their thoughts, ideas, and dreams for how life can be improved.
There are a lot of ideas out there. We try to use good judgment to find the best one that could provide the most sustainable product.
Fleshing out the idea to cover it from every angle is important. We do research, ask questions, dream big, and ultimately find the best direction to proceed with the idea.
The next step in the process is making a prototype. This is one of the hardest steps but also one of the most important. It is vital to have a minimum viable product to test. This is where the tinkering, engineering, and designing comes into play.
We try to always test our prototypes in the places where they are going to be used. We test them with the local people in their everyday, regular lives. We love to receive feedback from the people who are testing our prototypes.
After feedback from testing – we are ready to manufacture our final product. Yeah!
Continued Improvement: We continue to listen to those using our products in order to make them better and better and better.
