MORRISVILLE, N.C. - In today's uncertain times, working
professionals are looking for alternative income streams. The RTP Product Development Guild, a new
organization which provides an opportunity for professionals to work on
high-return projects while keeping their day jobs, will begin work on its first
project the first quarter of 2009. The
Guild is actively recruiting talent in the RTP area to help launch a new
company which targets the automotive aftermarket.
The RTP Product Development Guild brings together a diverse
pool of talented professionals to help launch new product-driven companies that
might otherwise stall due to a lack of resources. By joining the Guild, product developers, engineers, industrial
designers, marketing, sales, business and technology commercialization experts
who can invest two to four hours per week can safely explore new ventures and
enhance their network.
The Guild's mission is to improve the regional economy by
providing a structured environment for product developers and startups to work
together on products in a collaborative environment. This helps entrepreneurs
move products to market that might otherwise languish due to a lack of funding
and professional guidance.
"The purpose of the RTP Product Development Guild is to
focus local resources on specific projects and help local entrepreneurs create
local products to drive the local economy now and in the future," says Montie
Roland, president of the RTP Product Guild.
To fulfill its mission, the RTP Product Development Guild
accepts applications for products, services or concepts from entrepreneurs,
early stage start-ups and corporate spin-offs. Once a project is accepted, a
team consisting of Guild members chosen for their industry expertise and the
product champion from the start-up is assembled. The team then spends
approximately six months defining, brainstorming and developing the product. At
the end of the six-month period, the team makes a presentation to the investment
and venture capital community.
"The RTP Product Development Guild is an exciting new
resource for entrepreneurs," says Roland. "We are looking forward to building a
team and beginning work on our first project.
We are now accepting applications for team members with experience in
marketing, sales, automotive aftermarket distribution, mechanical engineering
and business development. These
professionals must be able to put two to four hours per week into a project for
six months. In return, they are able to
invest in a start-up enterprise at the ground level."
