Risks and challenges
With a project this big, the biggest challenge is making sure we have everything we need to make the kit and can keep a supply chain simple and reliable. We are working with a great company that specializes in Kickstarter companies to do just this. Going forward we understand shipping a large piece is expensive and we are working on the most affordable way to ship. We are prepared for any changes that may need to be made before tooling and have allowed sufficient time to organize the supply chain as well as assemble the kits.
Other challenges are:
We have designed the system to use products that already exist, but there still may be a need for certification to sell in the US. This can take an undetermined amount of time.
Possible manufacturing design changes to adhere to code or create a more affordable system.
Growing a living organism is very difficult. Yield, growth rate, and size can often vary. We are working on always improving steps and processes to be as consistent as possible.
