Get Ready To Manufacture is fab!

"I took part in Get Ready to Manufacture and it was fab!


The videos were at great length, and the information was presented in a straightforward and practical way. The questions were also really good. They made me think and understand more about what is ahead.


The most important part for me was that it made me feel like what we want to do is achievable, and that we now have an amazing community who we can work with!


Thank you Henk Werner and your team!"

This team is great!

"This team is great!


It is good to know that there is a group of people like TroubleMaker who can help to develop a product.


I followed the workshop and my favourite things are that the videos are not long at all, but so full of real stuff, and the possibility to read the results of the assignments from participants from all over world.


To my friends I'm saying that it is important to know all about what is available and to enter a social community to grow your own network and possibilities. 


Great!"
