Risks and challenges
We know we can't make a high quality finished product without strong relationships with our suppliers and manufacturing partners. We have already started to build that foundation way before launching our project on Kickstarter and have spent the past three years nurturing and maturing those relationships along with our own expanding internal team. There will be some differences as we move into larger scale manufacturing of a mass market device and are building a comprehensive team of mentors, consultants, and industry advisors to help guarantee our success.
There are always timeline risks with product development, we have fully validated the OV Smartwatch in functioning prototypes and are confident that we will deliver a high quality finished product on time and defect free.
Will there be issues and concerns along the way? Yes is the only real answer. Our supporters will continuously be informed on the progress we're making towards delivering their order. If an unforeseen issue poses a potential delay to our timing, then we will be transparent and timely in our communication to the people who are making our growth a reality.
The passionate supporters who support our project on Kickstarter are our most important asset. Thank you for believing in us. We will do whatever it takes to exceed your expectations. Thanks!
