About

Our Story

The Flexidesk (patent pending) was inspired by our struggle  as college students to work outdoors in the green spaces around our campuses. We found that there was no good way to be productive, and no good place to work while enjoying nature. This problem inspired us to create The Flexidesk, a completely portable and affordable desk that adapts to a variety of different circumstances and promotes lifestyle productivity. 

Stretch Goal: $50,000  

This is our stretch goal that will help us get to a full production stage as fast as possible! If we can reach our $50,000 stretch goal, we can ensure that The Flexidesk will reach it's full potential and maximize our production capacity. 

Features

    • At the very core of the vision that is Flexidesk lies the need for portability and storability.
    • The Flexidesk is easy to use and even easier to transport.
    • The interlocking elastic design at the center of The Flexidesk means that disassembly can be done in a single motion. 
    • When folded, The Flexidesk is no larger than your average school binder and fits easily into your backpack, purse, or laptop bag. 
    • The Flexidesk has a retractable solar panel that can charge any USB device while you work. 
    • An integrated external battery allows for charging indoors or on the go.
    • The external battery can be charged via the solar panel or a micro USB connection.
    • Telescoping legs can adjust to different heights to accommodate the user.
    • This allows the Flexidesk to be used in a variety of settings, whether it's for studying in a grassy area on a college campus, reading at the beach, or presenting at a business meeting.
    • Holds your drinks so you don't have to!
    • USB port charges any mobile electronic device.
    • Charge your devices even when the desk is not deployed and in your backpack.
  • External battery pack can either be charged via the solar panel or any micro USB wall charger.
  • Stores excess energy from the solar panel so that the desk's charging capabilities can be used indoors.

    The Team

    What will the money be spent on?

    To this point, all Flexidesk models have been built mostly with 3D printed pieces. Taking The Flexidesk to the manufacturing stage we will need to pay for tooling and molding of these peices.  Beyond that, raw material suppliers and distributors are needed to bring the finished product to you. Additionally, in order to allow for The Flexidesk to be completely customizable we will need to become licensed for logos of colleges, universities, or anything else that would make your Flexidesk unique. 


Risks and challenges

One of the primary challenges that faces product design teams like us is manufacturing. Most products usually need a span of one to three years in order to develop the product and trouble shoot any issues- a process that we have compressed into a couple of months.

With that being said, there are inherent risks of delay during the production process that may be beyond our control. No matter the case, we will keep our backers updated through every part of the process to make you as involved as you possibly can.

Thank you for joining our mission and helping the Flexidesk become a reality.
