About Us

You can read about us here or, better yet, stop by and see for yourself!


Wild Manta opened its doors in December, 2011. We have a singular focus and that is to strengthen our community through creating lasting companies and inspired products. Our mission is to develop locally owned and operated businesses who export innovative products that have a positive impact on the local and national economy. We have created a world-class facility and made it open to the public so everyone can see how products are created and get their products to market. We have absolutely the best customers. They are inspired, motivated, and are willing to help each other. This allows any business or any person with a passion for sharing their knowledge within our community an opportunity to share what they know or offer regardless of age!

We are a family owned and operated business commercial business. We assure you, our passion for design and building companies comes through in every meeting. We are always approachable and responsive and enjoy sharing our experiences and connections with our customers. Some folks ask how we contrast ourselves with Incubators or Engineering Services companies. The best way to explain it is that we are in it for the long haul. We want to be a partner that will walk the path with you from the very beginning and will keep helping and expanding your business for decades. We know that will not always be the case, but it is the dream. We have this dream because we care about companies and our community and know that they contribute to each other's health. We don't walk away when the going gets hard (or the bank account is empty) nor do we force you to look for an exit strategy.



Wild Manta grew out of a desire to serve our community in a way that build long-term value and relationships that would last a lifetime while building the local economy. We saw so many local companies (both large and small) struggling to develop new products and having to piece-meal out the design of their product or failing because they did not have access to a robust support structure. We believe what we are offering is unique in the area and one of only a few in the country. Also, we do not limit ourselves to high-tech. We work in multiple domains including electronics, sporting goods, medical devices, and craft/toy areas.

The founders of Wild Manta have deep roots in corporate and product development in the commercial, retail, and government areas. Combined, we have developed hundreds products/projects that have sold tens of thousands of these products. We are pleased to work with entrepreneurs and corporations to develop, transition technologies, and build multi-year product road maps that create a legacy. Wild Manta is a friendly place for product design while remaining absolutely serious about bringing value to each and every customer.

But, we don't do it alone. We work with an extensive network of legal, financial, branding, marketing, design, manufacturing and distribution partners. We have carefully chosen every one of our partners because they are like-minded in their passion for the customer, their work ethic and their desire to build your company and our economy.


Wild Manta is always open for you. We are open 6 days per week and intentionally built our facility so you feel comfortable coming in and doing some work, having a meeting, or doing some planning. You will run into other business folks doing the same thing. Whether is is a meeting room, our open meeting area, the couches or the cafe, Wild Manta welcomes you!
