This 4-part course takes entrepreneurs through the development steps in preparing a Manufacturing Strategy for their business.

Upon completion of the course, entrepreneurs will understand the basic decisions and elements required for their own lean start manufacturing process, have a Manufacturing Strategy template for their new product, a set of manufacturing vendor options for production and a series of information checkpoints for various implementation steps.

Who should attend?

  • This course is useful for all ventures planning to do their own manufacturing or for those planning to outsource all manufacturing or some combination of the two.
  • The Everest program consists of advanced working sessions where entrepreneurs have the chance to test their assumptions and hypotheses while working through problems within their startups.
  • These startups not only have a prototype/ beta or minimum viable product (MVP), but also have a team, some customer validation, and some traction.
  • Only available to Regional Innovation Centre (RIC) clients. Please contact your RIC contact for more information.

Please note that to benefit from the peer-to-peer nature of these sessions, all attendees are expected to engage and remain for the full session.


In order to take advantage of Everest, we require participants to give a deposit of $100. This deposit is fully refundable ONLY upon completion of the post-session survey following each session within 5 days of the last session. Given the intimate nature of Everest, and because the success of each session relies on the attendance of ventures, we use the deposit to ensure that ventures will attend when they sign up.

If you are no longer able to attend the session, we require 2 business days’ notice. Please email workshops@marsdd.com. We regret that failure to do so may result in the loss of your deposit.
