Beside free standing the design of the Ecofarm makes it possible to put the Ecofarm cornered or flat against the wall. What makes it very space efficient.
The triangle shape of the Ecofarm makes it possible to pack very efficient and is having a minimum of empty space. For the fish tank we choose for high quality plastic instead of glass to reduce weight. With this we minimize the CO2 emission.

Risks and challenges
n the process from prototyping to production-ready there are many variables that can go wrong and might be considered as risks.
The good news is that we have set up a team with experienced people and we will be working with manufacturers who have years of experience with this kind of products. Making this process risk as lower as possible.
COMPETITION: Arise of similar products from the hand of big manufacturers
MANUFACTURING: The production technique for producing the water tank and grow bed is injection molding. It is really expensive to make the molds and requires expert knowledge to get it right. 30 day lead time to create the molds for this product with chances of delays is other risk to consider.
RETAILERS: As small startup we have the risk regarding to the conditions in terms of payment and delivery with the main retailers. We don't have enough funds to afford for example 120 days payment after delivery.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
