Risks and challenges

Product Development:
The Plantaqua design and molding processes are finished. So, before launching the Kickstarter Project, we had already taken the Plantaqua off the drawing board. We are guessing that a production of Plantaqua shouldn't take more than a month.
Production
From our previous experience in designing and product managing new consumer products, we are sure that we'll get Plantaqua produced within 1 month. Although we do not foresee delays in production, but quality control reasons sometimes require a temporary production break in order to make sure that only top quality products are shipped. But these delays are no more than 1 or 2 weeks.
Distribution
We know that distribution might become a significant challenge. A device working with 4 AA battery should not cause any problems when distributing it. We have been working with the international courier companies to deliver our previous products all around the world.
