LA New Product Development Team

We Turn Ideas into Reality!

We, at LA New Product Development Team, believe in enabling and growing businesses through product innovation.

Our mission is to realize our customer’s vision.

Imagine you came up with an invention idea that could make someone’s life better while creating a business opportunity for you. Or if you had an idea of a product that would create a new revenue source for your company. How would you go about developing these ideas into real products? Where would you go or whom would you call? That’s where we come into play.

Our cross-functional team of engineers, designers, and marketing specialists brings technical expertise to the table. In particular, we provide product design, prototyping, and marketing services

In other words, we are experts at turning ideas into market-ready products. This includes developing CAD models and PCB circuits, building prototypes, optimizing product designs for manufacturing, creating marketing materials (packaging, websites, animations, renderings), and more.

WHY?

It’s an incredible feeling to turn ideas into something real.

Every day we help our customers to realize their dreams and make their business ventures possible. We feel honored to share our customers’ excitement when they review a design draft or interact with the first prototype. Our team gets to experience and lead the evolution of an idea into a marketable product. We believe in entrepreneurship and the American Dream. In fact, turning our customers’ ideas into a reality allows us to realize our own dream – a company that can make a difference in the marketplace through product innovation.

HOW?

We know how to listen. We are here for our customers, their product ideas, and their business interests.

Over the years we learned how to translate requests and wants into feasible product designs. A clear understanding of our customers’ goals combined with the expertise and the technical know-how of our team results in great solutions and met (or often exceeded) expectations.

Our product development process successfully worked for a variety of industries. Over the years we developed products ranging from clothing and toys to wearable electronic gadgets and heavy machinery.

We tackle projects by splitting them into “bite-sized” stages. This allows everyone to stay focused and keep the process of developing a new product on track and under control. To achieve high productivity, we use SCRUM as a basis for our methodology. Specifically, it helps us to focus on what matters most and to track our progress with metrics.

The key element of our process is, of course, our diverse team. The different backgrounds and expertise allow us to look at problems from different perspectives and then combine the best elements of each into a superior solution.

Do you want to feel what our customers experience when working with us? This video will give you a glimpse of it.

WHAT?

We are a “one-stop shop” for product development.

This means we can provide turn-key solutions and take your product idea all the way to manufacturing and commercialization. At the same time, we offer “à la carte” services for your specific needs, like CAD modeling, or 3D scanning, or website development, just to name a few. Here you can find more information about all the services we offer.

Our core expertise is in mechanical and electronic product design and prototyping. We also provide high-quality website design, 3D animations, and mobile app development.

In addition to the services, our customers get access to a wide network of manufacturers, packaging companies, retailers, patent attorneys, business consultants, investors, and other resources they may need to achieve their business goals.

PORTFOLIO

How We Started

LA NPDT started its journey as a student organization formed by Konstantin Dolgan and Onega Ulanova at Louisiana Tech University in 2014. Both Konstantin and Onega moved to the United States from Kazakhstan with a dream of getting their graduate degrees in Engineering. The school allowed them to meet passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated people who wanted to make an impact. By leveraging their education in engineering and experience in business and management, the couple started a student organization named LA New Product Development Team. Two years later the organization evolved into a company. The first office opened its doors in Shreveport, Louisiana on the 26th of September, 2016.
