Tech20: Innovation, rapid development, pivot or persevere

Dan Purkis will provide a personal view of innovation and product development, based on his 25 years’ experience developing innovative solutions for downhole completions and well intervention.   

An entrepreneur by heart, Dan answers some of the key questions faced by technology developers:

  • Where do the ideas come from?
  • Can anyone do it?
  • How to build and test a Minimum Viable Product?
  • How to fail quickly?
  • Are patents worth it?
  • How long does it take to commercialise a great idea?

Dan will provide examples of previous successes and failures as well as some exciting “not sure yet” works in progress.

Amazing things happen when Dan retreats to his shed!  This Tech20 is a ‘must see’ for those close to developing their idea but hoping for some practical advice and inspiration in pushing it over the line.
