Turning Vision into Value

To thrive you must innovate. SVII provides a variety of “Vision to Value” services to innovation advocates at all levels, from highly leveraged government and business leaders to entrepreneurs and sole contributors.

SVII is a combination of a think tank and public forum – a place for the innovation community to come together and hatch new ideas or initiatives. Our knowledge network of creative participants consider the insights and appropriate business models to support them.

From Makers To Manufacturing

The SVII is happy to present another of our live events, From Makers to Manufacturing! This event will discuss the shortening time between the conception of an idea and the construction of the idea’s first model. By collapsing the distance between conception and creation more advancements can be made in less time, allowing for swifter advancement.

The kick-off event at our beautiful new space* is going to be great! We are lining up an amazing panel of guests, and look forward to a deep dialogue with participants old and new.

Envision a world where the time between an idea’s conception and its physical rendering is not months but hours. The industrial revolution launched the age of manufactured goods, but mass fabrication has always required a long and expensive setup, and the initial prototyping still required skilled handcrafting.

Babies grow too quickly for their prosthetics, people with old cars need parts long since out of production, inventors need a widget to do some unique thing that only they want to do.

What if anyone could make almost anything they can imagine, quickly and inexpensively? What might the “maker revolution” have in store for us in terms of our lifestyles and capabilities?
