About

You can play a vital part in our mission to provide the global aid organisation Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF, also known as Doctors Without Borders) with our first fully functional G-POD unit. 

Amazing Space & Versatility created...
Amazing Space & Versatility created...

Your participation allows us to kick-start our commercial operations AND with your help, we promise to use the G-POD for Good. You are the key to this and we really want you involved. 

Our first G-POD unit, which we are calling G-POD #001, will be configured as an easily transportable, completely unique medical clinic for use in MSF’s aid work in disaster areas around the world. We are already working closely with MSF, a truly amazing organization - and your dollars enable us, together, to make a real difference for them. 

In fact, we have even committed to donate one complete unit to MSF for every US$40k raised through people just like you in the Kickstarter Community. You can make a major contribution to this outcome, no matter the amount. 

What’s our story? We have a team of committed people who have been working hard on the development of the G-POD for nearly two years now and to date we’ve self-funded the project for over a $1m.

You can help us start production of the G-POD, which is the world's first truly affordable, expandable containerized dwelling. We are almost there and you can get us over the line! Unique, architecturally designed, self-sufficient and fully transportable, no wonder G-POD already has fans waiting. 

We’re seeking funding through the Kickstarter community to help us create our first production unit G-POD #001, which we will then – with your help – give to MSF. Your backing will also enable us to activate an existing order book that is contingent on finalizing this first unit. 

G-Pod #001 ... Ready for the fit-out line !

Our vision is for G-POD to become a Global solution to the ever growing accommodation needs of our crowded planet. Green, sustainable and affordable, it offers accommodation options that could be deployed in countless ways to include urban housing, hotels & resorts, in remote areas, low-cost housing and lifestyle options such as pop-up shops and café’s; medical uses including clinics & hospitals; and for NGO/disaster relief. Help us do Good with G-POD.

What makes us worthy of your time and money? We've created an amazing product which will have an impact on the lives of many. G-POD enables the humble shipping container to become a really usable space, generating its own power and water from built in, self-sustainable technologies. G-PODs are strong, comfortable; require low maintenance and provide highly adaptable internal and external spaces for a multitude of applications. 

Your support will have a real impact. We'll make sure of that!

Risks and challenges

G-pod has been in development now for a couple of years. We understand that there are always risks in any business but we know we’ve mitigated against a number of them already.

We have added a time and cost contingency to our budgeting and delivery plans to help limit any unforeseen risks such as possible production or design issues.

We have hired our own production manager to operate out of the factory where we manufacture in China to ensure that quality control and adherence to budget and production parameters.

Also, we all know what we are doing. We all have reputations to maintain and grow. Risk is just a normal part of doing business. Experience and standards mean everything.
