Succeed in bringing your new product idea to life

We empower the independent inventor with real-world product development knowledge & insights.

Acumen CPG believes the most beloved and enduring product ideas don't come from large companies... but instead, they come from the genius of the independent innovator & dreamer who sees something others cannot and has the determination to bring it to life.

Self-funded startups need to avoid costly missteps 

The Journey from Idea to Store Shelf

The journey from idea to store shelf can be slow and expensive when taking a trial & error approach

ineffective patent and design efforts requiring costly rework

needlessly expensive manufacturing costs

finished products that fail to delight your target consumer

rash early choices that limit future ability to scale

unexpected thin margins necessitating endless cost cutting 

frustrating lack of forward progress leading to burnout
