I need some experts' opinion on this.
So I have my arduino, build my prototype of an application or an arduino shield, it works great, designed a custom pcb, then what is the next step to small or large production? What is the process followed? How could you hire a company or a factory to build this for you? Is there a minimum of prototypes a factory would manufacture for you?
I see many people on the arduino community, having a store and selling the stuff they made, how does all this work? If someone has a personal experience I would be glad to hear it!
