Our story:

The traditional iron hoop has not changed since it was invented in 1920 and ever since it has dominated the key-chain industry and today it is commonly used by all.

Unfortunately, the iron hoops we all use are not suited for our modern lives, they are not stylish nor practical for our needs. It looks clumsy, it breaks our fingernails when we try to add or replace a key, and when we open a door with a bundle of keys attached to it – it just feels like an old dumb way of doing things; To top it all it often scratches and damages our delicate belongings that come in contact with it – like our smartphone.

While, the entire world is racing ahead and everything we use becomes more efficient, stylish and neat, the iron hoop is one of those technologies that has been left behind and is in desperate need of an upgrade.

So why do we all use it? The answer is simple, it’s a habit so engrained in our daily lives that nobody has bothered to update for a century! When we are left with no options we make due and it is here that Panny makes its entrance.

As a Product Manager in the high-tech industry for seven years, I was exposes to many development and material engineering processes that put me in a position to do something about this pain point we’d been talking about for so long.

After researching and opening up to creative ideas around us we realized that when we separate our keys from the iron hook and from each other - a wonderful innovation could take place!

During the last twelve months we have examined, tested and analyzed each parameter. From formulating the general concept through choosing the most suitable raw material. With this in hand we designed a safe and simple mechanism that works great for a broad range of key types. Realizing that there are items that have joined our keys as parts of our daily lives that we need with us we devoted thought to the complimentary products that would enhance our users experience.

Why Kickstarter?

•Panny is a new and unique product that seeks to change a strongly engrained habit that has existed over the last century.

•Kickstarter is the platform for innovative and creative products.

•Kickstarter’s users are open to changes and encourage disruptive products.

•We have finished a challenging and fascinating period of ideation, engineering, planning, design and testing, and we are now ready to bring you the best solution.

•After three prototype cycles we have formulated the final product. We are now ready to step past the development phase and look forward to the next step - mass production.

•With your support we will produce the molds and the first production run to bring you a quality product we believe in.

 We are excited to invite you to take part in this amazing project

Risks and challenges

- Risks -

After working for seven years in the high tech industry, I can say with confidence that there is no such thing as "risk-free“ in product development.

The trick is to make the right moves in order to minimize the probability for “surprises”.

Therefore, we have worked from the beginning closely with a professional and experienced material engineer and we chose a reputable provider of plastics that has decades in the field and assures us the highest quality of raw material.

The Panny has been designed and engineered for mass production with all the relevant parts optimized for the specific processes that will be used to manufacture our product.

As for the complementary products, we work with two major suppliers in order to be able to respond to shifts in demands.

All the above partners were tested and selected by parameters of quality, production capacity and delivery timetables.

- Challenges -

We see before us two main challenges:

“spreading the word” – we are keen to deliver our message to as many people as possible, but we are aware this will require educating the market to our new approach. On positive mention form one of you is worth a 1000 paid promotions so we would be overjoyed to get help from each and every one of you by taking a moment to share a great new product trying to make a change. We are sure that your friends will thank you for it in the future.

Raising initial capital – we believe in the key chain revolution. With your generous backing we will overcome this hurdle and bring high-end models to market in a variety of colors that allow for more variability and that will make our solution applicable to as many use cases as possible.
