Hi everyone, Apologies if I'm posting this in the wrong section, this is my first post of the forums, please let me know if it needs to be moved. Anyways, I have not long graduated from my postgraduate degree, since I was child, my ambition has always been to work for myself. I have come up with an idea centred around phone accessories that enhance privacy, they're rather simple designs however I believe they would enhance security whilst simultaneously protecting the hardware of the device, an added bonus! I've been extensively researching how to go about this, getting it designed and having a prototype made as well as the manufacturing process (either manufacturing it myself or having someone do it for me), however, I've become stuck on this. As a cash strapped (former) student, it seems that the startup costs needed to design and manufacture a product is astronomical and this is simply something I cannot afford to do. Does anyone know a cost-effective way in which I can design and manufacture a prototype? As well as a cost-effective way of self-manufacturing or a manufacturer who can produce the products again in a cost effective manner? I'm happy to answer any questions, if the above isn't sufficient. Thanks!
