What Is FirstBuild?

FirstBuild is a co-creation community that is changing the way products come to market. By letting a community influence the product from the very beginning, we can quickly deliver better products that improve the lives of our consumers. Backed by GE Appliances, FirstBuild has access to world-class engineering and design talent.
