Tatcraft -

“Let’s grow something big within the new work world”

Tatcraft_Firm is one hot and exciting mixture of project management / engineering consulting / manufacturing services / brand building agency. We’re inhouse a lot of our time but we’re also out there inventing, creating and building serious projects with our partners all the time. Would be great to help you grow, too.

Where our Makerspace is all about building great stuff in terms of fabrication, manufacturing, (high tech) prototyping and product development- hardware things, so to say, within Tatcraft Firm things turn a bit softer. We are a cross-disciplinary, heterogeneous team bringing quite some decades of experience in private equity /consulting/venture capital, product development, engineering, marketing, design and business growth to the table. We not only know the hardships of taking businesses to market- we felt them. Many times, over and over.

You’re a company trying to navigate the new work world (of hardware creation) and need guidance? Let us help you to circumvent some of the troubles! You’re a startup ready to push through the last rough patches before launching your product? Finding manufacturing partners can be a pretty shitty process. We can do some of the steps for you! You’re a creative mind but prototyping and production isn’t yours? We do tech support, quite often actually. Fabrication is our thing! You need support in building a brand that touches our area of expertise? Our team of business guys, designers and social media people is happy to support you!

TATCRAFT –
CONSULTING

grow.

Conceiving, designing, planning and planning products / services / etc. isn’t an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, most of the time, that’s exactly what is needed to get business up and/or running. Often a little tweak or a push in the right direction (or a fantastic design thinking workshop with a pretty uncontrollable, cross-disciplinary team) is that’s needed to find a killer marketable concept. 

Tatcraft entities embrace new work as well as lean management/ computer aided design/ flat hierarchies and rapid prototyping. Just to drop a few fancies. We are a cross-disciplinary, heterogeneous team bringing quite some decades of experience in private equity /consulting/venture capital, product development, engineering, marketing, social, design and business growth to the table. 

All in all, Tatcraft_Firm works like a think tank that focusses primarily on execution (that sounds strange? Maybe, but it’s working!). Now we’re consulting! 

That means we finally are able to pass along knowledge, that we earned through our collective careers and our cumulative Tatcraft journey to help hardware founders / mid-caps (i.e. Mittelstand) / corporates as well as creative minds of all coleurs to build amazing concepts, projects, companies and products. 

We are still not there, wherever that is, but this journey led us to ownership of 5+ companies and 26 consulted within the last 18 months. Impressive, no? No bragging, friend. Just that you know we’re not complete idiots, trying to sell you stuff that we have no clue about. Execution is king.

 

 
 
 
 

TATCRAFT –
TECH
SERVICES

grow.

We believe in sharing ideas, thoughts and yes, infrastructure as well. One more thing we love doing is sharing our knowledge with clients. On projects we encountered countless technical and organizational problems that put us into the position to seek creative solutions countless times. Often, we gladfully received external guidance. That then led to an exhaustive network and a quite large knowledge and skill base that our Tatcraft_Firm tech service team is now using to fuel client cocreation projects. 

 
 
 

DESIGN FOR PRODUCTION

Hardware is hard. Especially when it comes to hardware production (so many things to consider, so many skillsets needed). Hand in hand with our creative team, the Tatcraft_Firm tech service team helps hardware entrepreneurs/ companies/ makers/ creative minds to achieve their hardware goals. You already have a product, that needs final touches to be mass produced? Show us how far you’ve come, and we jump right in. You need technical knowledge? Ask our team. You need someone who interprets your drawings into CAD models? Discuss your plans with us!

HARDWARE PROTOTYPING

Conceiving, designing and planning a product isn’t an easy thing to do. Unfortunately, most of the time, a (working) prototype is exactly what is needed to get a business up and running. The good thing is, that hardware prototyping really is one of the things, that we like most. Within our program Tatcraft_Firm is glad to be of help. You’re a creative mind but prototyping and production isn’t yours? We do tech support, quite often actually. Fabrication is our thing!

SOURCING /SUPPLY CHAIN

Sourcing is sometimes one of the most annoying parts of hardware production. Finding the right materials can be a troublesome process. Finding manufacturing partners can be a pretty shitty process, too. Through lots of projects as well as through Tatcraft_Makerspace we are pretty used to sourcing and can happily count on a resourceful network. You have not only imagined but are also done planning a product, and now you need help finding the ingredients? Maybe we can help you. You have a final prototype that needs a manufacturing partner? Let’s go!

MASS PRODUCTION

You have done pretty much all steps of the ladder, now you’re ready for the final step, the biggie. Building/producing a product in larger quantities or masses separates a real company from merely an endeavor. Let us help you to circumvent some of the troubles and let us together push through the last rough patches before launching your product!



 

 
 

BRAND–
BUILDING

grow.

Tatcraft_Firm as a company, resides within the New Work world. Brand and company building are never easy. Fortunately, in this (brave!) new work world, everything, from building a global brand out of your bedroom to high-tech hardware innovation, got more accessible and therefore within reach of thesmart, but not too professional.

That’s great, and really the foundation of our company. But unfortunately, that also means, that brand building and marketing techniques are evenly accessible and that your endeavor /company /organization really, really has to mean something to your audience.

Even the best products (or services) are rarely good without solid brand recognition. A fact, that we ourselves encountered several times over. Therefore, we founded our inhouse agency as part of Tatcraft_Firm. We deeply believe in cocreation, collaboration and leveraging the aggregate creative minds of a collaborative network. We imagine, create and fabricate with unparalleled speed, fun and efficiency. 

 
 
 

STRATEGY

A solid brand strategy begets strong brand recognition. Strong brand recognition begets business growth. Strong business growth makes everyone happy, if and only if you deliver value. For us, delivering value is always the basis of strategic concepts.  

 

DESIGN

Most of the time design projects, for us, are cross-disciplinary, somewhat heterogeneous events. Therefore, within the Tatcraft context our perspectives on design are manifold, ranging from product design to graphic design / to video / to interior / to architecture.

 

MARKETING

A killer concept / strategy with amazing design is nothing without proper execution. How do investment bankers say? Execution is king. We do marketing where we deliver value best. Most of the time this is on social and events but might also be print / guerilla / old school advertising. 

 

EVENTS

For us, the best way to market (pretty much sell) something is face to face. Therefore, events play a huge role in our marketing concepts. It’s just so, that we are able to deliver much more emotional value when we actually see people…. For us, events need a holistic approach and our facilities, workshops, restaurant and team are perfect for such a concept.
