Techshot hosts technology event

Techshot, a product development company with offices in Greenville and at the Purdue Technology Center of Southeast Indiana in New Albany, will host a free event at the tech center from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday to offer a glimpse into the processes it uses to transition its customers’ ideas into functional products.  

Titled, “Ideation to Prototype Creation: Spanning the Longest Yard in Technology Development,” the event is expected to be most beneficial to first time entrepreneurs attempting to bring a product idea to market. Techshot VP for Corporate Advancement Rich Boling will discuss the company’s engineering road map for developing new products and technologies; the most common mistakes made by entrepreneurs new to tech development; and the Purdue Research Foundation/Techshot partnership.

Created late last year, the partnership is designed to help educate and equip entrepreneurs to plan for and overcome many of the roadblocks typically faced by startups. Since 1988, Techshot has been developing new products and technologies for commercial, governmental and institutional customers. Its 25 mechanical, electrical and software engineers and technicians specialize in developing first of their kind products. One customer, Mavizon, is garnering worldwide attention at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas with Mavia, a product which features electronics and firmware developed by Techshot.

The event is free and open to the public, but registration is requested.  

Call Elva McMahon at the Purdue Technology Center of Southeast Indiana at 812-206-8380 to RSVP or for more information.
