How do you get funding on kickstarter?

Crowd funding is a great way to get your product to market and sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo can help you do that. However, if your idea is a product then before you can ask for funding on these sites you have to have a working prototype of your product. You would have to find a designer, manufacturer and maybe a software engineer. That sounds like a lot
of work, doesn't it?

That's where we can help. We can do all of that for you and more. We can create that working prototype, with your branding, that will show potential investors that you are serious and that your product is worth their time and money. We can help you get the funding you need to turn your ideas into your future. So contact us and tell us about your idea, we'll do everything
else for you.



ODI, a smart investment

When you provide funding for a company you probably want that company to keep expenses under control and minimize their time to shipping product, whether that product is hardware or software. Rather than building a new team from scratch, with the expense, time, and trial and error that entails, ODI can be your product development team. We’ve been doing this for customers—startups and Fortune 500 companies—for two decades. We can handle every step from idea to shipping product, or we can pick it up from where it is at the time. When you’re ready to learn more about how ODI’s experienced, capable team can help you meet your goal, email or call Rich Slevin, rich AT or 650-318-8050 x205.
