Design and feasibility
Putting into operation
As technical experts, the members of ACTI Inc participated in this half-day and were able to intervene in particular on subjects of product Validation, incubation, mechanical design and feasibility as well as Production. We were also able to help some project holders by giving them contacts corresponding to their specific needs through our network.
This event allowed the project holders to present the problems they encounter on their current projects, to ask questions to the experts in order to know the common mistakes and know how to avoid them, or to present their ideas In order to have a return on the feasibility of their ideas and get out of the isolation of start-ups.
The meeting ended with a time of friendly networking during which the various stakeholders were able to discuss their ongoing projects and find technical solutions, partnerships, or advice.
Thanks again to the Espace manufactures and OuiShare Québec for this wonderful day!
