For our first pilot year running the Shape Program, we have a group of 9 individuals who are working to develop wood products for a showcase at IDS Vancouver in September 

Shape is a new program established by TWIG in partnership with BC Wood and CAWP to spark developments in the value-added wood products space, taking people from concept to product launch. This program is building on a history of programs from BC Wood and CAWP’s technical expertise and industry support. Participants over the last 3 months have been working through the stages of product development and will be presenting their design concepts at the June 17th in-person event. 

The structure of this program is created around a cohort model, where the group moves through the process and experience the stages of product development and learning together. Alongside the expertise provided through the program, the knowledge that different individuals bring can influence the success and outcomes of all participants.

The event will feature pitches from all of the participants and a presentation created in partnership with the hosts Rangate that will provide information related to design for manufacturing. There will be coffee and lunch provided.
