Ideate & Evaluate

Ideas are the starting point for solving the challenges in developing major home appliances. These ideas can come in the form of a drawing, a design, or a thought. Sharing your idea is the first step towards making it a reality.

A dialogue in the form of voting and commenting is the backbone of the FirstBuild community. It is how your good ideas turn into great ideas, and it is what determines which ideas go on to become products.


Create & Manufacture

The making phase is a critical step in the creative process. We believe that the best way to learn about a problem or a product is to build it. FirstBuild provides the space, tools, and resources to build and prototype the appliances of your dreams.

Rapid and advanced manufacturing techniques at the FirstBuild Microfactory can produce products quickly and on a small scale. This gives customers the ability to provide quick feedback and influence the design.


Share & Sell

FirstBuild will then help sell and promote your great ideas online through a dedicated web store and on physical shelves, including ones at the Microfactory.
