It’s well known around the MAKO offices that we follow the GSD Model. That’s the Get Sh*t Done model. We get whatever it is done as effectively and efficiently as possible, saving our clients time and money. That’s why Founder of MAKO Design, Kevin Mako, was the perfect guest on the Apple Podcast Peak Performers with Thor Conklin. Detailing MAKO’s invention design strategy, our incredible business growth, and exactly how we’ve become masters of GSD!

MAKO’s Invention Design Strategy Highlighted on the Podcast:

In the three-part series, Kevin and podcast host Thor Conklin discuss our invention design strategy, how to balance growth and profitability in your new business, and why MAKO doesn’t take equity in any client inventions.

“Part of the reason we’ve grown so much is that we’ve been incredibly strategic in our spending,” says Kevin Mako, Founder of Mako Design + Invent. “Growth is prioritized equally with scaling the business and growing our service offering. Because we’ve put so much investment into our invention design strategy, the quality of our work, better design work, quicker timelines, better partnerships, better pricing, you name it. We’re essentially building the tools for our clients to efficiently and effectively take their inventions to market.”
