Prepared for Flight, LLC, was formed as a Venture Studio to fulfill the local need for a revolutionary environment where dreams of “what if” can organically develop from the ether of ideas to the full realization of success. Prepared for Flight is a venture capital group which develops its own IP and manufactures its own products.
Prepared for Flight® provides a launchpad for idea development and the opportunity to engage our planet’s human element.
Personal experience and knowledge are catalysts in our engine to evolve thought – the core of discovery – to unleash its limitless potential and redefine possible. Idea development processes are often atypical and require a non-traditional business approach.
At Prepared for Flight®, we saw that there was a growing need for individuals to have access to an experienced entrepreneurial knowledge base while still being able to not only develop their own idea, but retain a majority stake in it as well. Our company was founded to make sure the idea originator and the engineer are credited for their work. Unconventional in America, but it works for us.
In 2020 we opened our doors to outside clientele, are constantly expanding our team of collaborators and our manufacturing collective. We created a makerspace and manufacturing infrastructure.
We welcome your ideas and offer an avenue for you to succeed.
Our team members, partners in our manufacturing collective, and our clients traverse the professional spectrum, bringing experiences from a variety of industries and market segments. We are engineers and artists, sales managers and marketeers, people who love hands-on work, and some who prefer to simply offer insight.
We are prepared for innovation, prepared to develop new ideas, by staying swift, agile, and lean, and caring about quality work throughout the process.
Like a caterpillar not waiting for metamorphosis to fly,
We are all Prepared for Flight®.
