From the start a bunch of entrepreneurial minds who got a vision of a smart projector and took the leap to go chase that vision and dream. The idea for Sweam came up when we were out on sales meetings and were astonished by all the technical hassle we had from connecting devices to big screens or huge projectors. There’s no exaggeration when saying you loose 10 minutes and your momentum when you have these technical hassles. So we figured, why not bring our own device?
We started to scout the market for good smart projectors but we found that most of the projectors were not so user-friendly, didn´t live up to our quality needs and they were not smart. So we skissed on our own version, the one we had been looking for ourselves.
We were great sales guys, but rookies when it came to techy stuff, and some of us didn't even know what a processor was. But we believed in our idea, quit our jobs and went to China with the vision and cockiness to have the product finished within 6 months. We we’re wrong. It took us 1,5 years including experienced tech developers, an amazing Swedish-based Chinese sourcing expert, a software developer on the highest level, an expert in design, a dream team of Chinese engineers in Shenzhen and 45 trips back and forth to China to get Sweam what it is today.
So believe us, we are really happy to present this product to our Kickstarter backers and also be certain of that we have not comprised on anything when making Sweam. On this journey we’ve developed from visionaries to entrepreneurs with a really good eye for what our customers needs today and in the future. We will not stop with Sweam, this is just the beginning.
From idea to production
Why we need you!
We need you to help us bring Sweam into everyone’s daily lives. By offering our backers the chance to buy Sweam at the lowest price ever, we welcome you to the Sweam family and acknowledge you as an important part of our company development. Your backing will also help us fulfill another vision of ours, which is to inspire others to follow their passion, taking that big leap out of their comfort zones, only armored with a vision, a determination and a strong willpower to realize their dreams. Just like we are doing. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your commitment, your enthusiasm and for being a part of our dream.
Risks and challenges
We developed our product according to CDD, and confirmed M.A.D.A manufacturers who have broad experience with similar projects, as well as close dialogues with Google. We have done several CTS tests and will apply for GMS in early December. Currently, we’re working proactively to ensure that the product will pass the tests for GMS. We are also confident in passing tests for Wifi, Bluetooth, CE, FCC, 4G, and RED, to name a few.
Our biggest challenge is securing Kickstarter funding in order to start mass production as soon as possible. Based on the risks and challenges, our timeline is realistic and achievable.
Larger-quantity orders will need longer production times, which we can gauge after the launch of the Kickstarter campaign.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
