Product Development Center

Product Development Center (PDC)

The Pi Shop, a product development center, has been launched in partnership with Blue Dolphin Engineering. This facility is designed to provide tools to spark and develop innovations, to advance ideas to the marketplace, to assist entrepreneurs with pursuing small business grants and to generate income to sustain the program. The Pi Shop is a fully-equipped shop containing CNC machines, 3D Printers, welders, conventional shop machines and other tools. The space is used primarily for development, prototyping and limited production of product ideas. The initial grant has been made and the Pi Shop, a 501(c)3 entity in California, is currently finalizing its architectural plans. The Pi Shop is expected to be fully operational in 2018. The Pi Shop is currently setting up specialized events and programs to assist participants with legal questions, SBIR/STTR grant writing, internet services and CAD software.
