Sharing Session: How Rapid Prototyping can Help De-risk Product Development and Lower Costs

Save the date on Tuesday, 01 March to hear from Sakthi Priya Balaji Ranganathan from Jix Reality. Sakthi will share his expertise on “How rapid prototyping can help de-risk product development and lower costs”. Startups are under a great deal of pressure. Investors want to get new products to market as fast as possible, while founders want to ensure products are high in quality before they reach the market. Often, these two goals are at odds—is it even possible to get a product to market quickly without sacrificing quality? The short answer is: yes, it is possible and we are going to show you ‘HOW’ in this interactive session. We’ll be hosting this event in-person at Te Ōhaka from 1.00PM – 2.00PM.

Sakthi is a hands-on entrepreneur with expertise in digital design, cross-functional team development, human-computer interaction (HCI), and extended reality technology. Through creative foresight, drive, and resoluteness, he built JIX Reality as a high-growth research lab focused on commercializing extended reality technologies (VR, AR, MR) for the New Zealand market.
