As a further sign of the growth in the Phoenix Start-Up community, there are two high value events for Start-ups that everyone should be aware of, and it doesn’t hurt that PADT is a key participant in both.
The first is a lunch and Learn: “The Start-Up Lifecycle – Key Strategies for Success at All Stages of Development.” This event is being presented by the Maricopa Corporate College and AZTC’s Startup + Entrepreneurship Committee and will be held at CEI’s fantastic facilities. Most technology-based start-up companies go through a similar growth lifecycle: validation; product development; commercialization; scale. In this presentation, CEI will discuss the basic principles of business development for companies at all stages. Topics that will be covered include:
- Lean Startup / Customer Discovery
- Prototyping and Minimum Viable Product
- Go-to-Market Strategies
- Growth Management
- and more!
The presenter are experienced entrepreneur’s who will share the lessons they have learned in their own companies and while helping others:
- Jeff Saville, Executive Director, CEI
- Nate Curran, Entrepreneur-in-Residence, CEI
- Hart Shafer, CEO/Founder, Theraspecs & Lean Startup/Innovation coach
- Eric Miller, Principal, Phoenix Analysis & Design Technologies (PADT)

Medical Device Workshop
PADT is also honored to be a participant in SYNAPSE 2015. This unique event is a 3-day workshop aimed at medical professionals with a product idea. The event will be an opportunity for them to work with industry professionals, like PADT, to turn those ideas into something real and tangible. This is being lead by Medicoventures and will also be held at CEI.
At the end of the three days attendees will have a prototype, secure intellectual property, and a vetted business model. They will also have a new network of resources and an invaluable education in the realities of Medical Device Start-Ups.
Other Resource sponsors besides PADT currently include: PipelineDesign; Global Patent Solutions; Knobbe-Martens IP Law; Schmeiser, Olsen & Watts IP Law; VA Angels; DLA Piper, and MedicoLabs.
This event is September 17, 18, and 19th.
