Risks and challenges
Extraordinary is being developed by a team of experienced technologists and creatives passionate about helping people live healthier, more sustainable lives and make a positive difference in the world. Together, we have:
- Founded several ventures
- Developed mobile apps for various Fortune 500 clients
- Designed widely used SAAS applications
- Developed award-winning mobile games
Design is nearly complete, development is underway and we have pre-existing customers. Risk is minimal. However, until the app is live, there is always a chance of unexpected setbacks. Our technical and PM experience can further reduce this risk.
Two things we're committed to: 1) delivering a truly fantastic product, and 2) transparency and communication with pledgers as we move toward completion.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
