San Diego has a strong sector working with manufactured products across a number of verticals. Come learn about how local electronic product operation, Bliss Lights, has massively scaled their home lighting product from initial product market fit and revenue, and come to the conclusion it was time to outsource their manufacturing operation to focus on their core competency - product design. One of the largest issues that manufactured product organizations encounter is the need to ramp up production while maintaining their competitive edge in product design. We speak with Alan Lee, Founder and President of Blisslights about outsourcing his manufacturing and getting back to his roots.
