Whether you’re looking for a prototype of your product to receive funding, an minimum viable product to validate your idea or a full-fledged solution built from the ground up, we’re here to support you throughout the journey.
We understand your needs because we’ve helped hundreds of clients on this journey and we’ve also walked it ourselves with our own start-up.
Our product development team uses commercially astute and agile methodology to build a manufacturable product for startups that want to minimize risks and maximize their chances of success.
If you have a physical product concept, D2M are here to help you build the product that will bring value to your users. In the Innovation Workshop Stage, we discuss the project idea with you, identify risks, understand requirements and generate multiple ideas and potential concept directions. After attending the workshop, you will have a much better idea of what is possible to develop and the sensible next steps.
We develop a detailed CAD model for review and sign off before then building a prototype based on the core requirements of your users.
What your potential market thinks of your product is critical. Constant feedback and review is necessary to reduce your risk and maximise the chance of successful launch and future growth.
A product roadmap can now be defined based on feedback during the market insight phase. We develop your product using an agile development approach and the latest in innovative materials and production methods.
Working with key partners who share our values we can support through IP protection, fund raising, tooling and production of your first batch.
Our senior creative team have worked on all manner of consumer products from kitchen utensils to lamps.
Integrated electronics and app control working with proven electronics developers.
Dedicated textiles senior team and onsite workshops for products requiring soft goods design and prototyping.

One of our senior design engineers will arrange a call to discuss the best way to develop your product, what it might cost and how long it might take.
They will be an expert in idea development who has done it many times before and they can answer your questions and help explain the process.
We are committed to ensuring the confidentiality of your project and guarantee to give you an honest opinion on whether it is worth proceeding with the concept. All the Intellectual Property around the concept remains yours even if we add further protectable features to your concept.
Our team has in-depth knowledge of startup systems and culture, so we focus on your users’ end needs and expectations. Continuous testing and user feedback help guarantee a product that your user wants and de-risk your venture.
We have proven expertise across different industries and all parts of the development process, from designing to launching the product. We live the startup journey and understand what works and doesn’t.
We’ve developed our own product, raised £500k for tooling and production and even got it into John Lewis (and then Covid happened!) Having walked the whole journey ourselves we’re uniquely positioned to help you avoid the pitfalls and mistakes we made!
We understand that product might require new features or the whole concept might need to pivot part way through. Therefore, our processes are geared up for continuous evolution and delivery, ensuring on-time launches. Our agile approach and onsite workshops helps us build products with quick turnaround time.
