What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About this project

Hello, my name is Dan. 

I have launched several successful products over my years as an entrepreneur and small business owner. One of the most successful is an auto detailing product that we sell online at sites like Amazon, and in physical locations like Costco, during our product demo shows.

An amazing thing happened – my happy customers came to me to tell me how one of my products could be used for other cleaning/polishing needs. Especially in this day, when there are so many different surfaces to be cleaned and protected… from shower doors and glass…to granite and marble…stainless steel… kitchen appliances…and much more… If you have accidentally marred the surfaces of one of today’s appliances, you know that finding the ‘gentle cleaner’ manufacturers suggest that can really cut through grease and grime is…pretty darn difficult…

 So as I worked on product formulation and development, I held tight to this idea…the idea that there should be a simple, natural ingredient - like a carnauba wax – in a product that could be used for cleaning and polishing almost anything that requires strong cleaning power in a gentle product. Something that interacted with the dirt but was not strongly chemical that would destroy finishes. I looked around and I saw on the shelves a lot of products – and some even claimed they “did-it-all”… but each time I was disappointed. None of them were really all that good… they were just big name companies trying to launch product extensions.

So I set out to find the right formulation of high-quality ingredients… I wanted to develop a product that had the natural ingredients we all want AND that didn’t hurt the environment. I wanted this formulation to be one that would never settle, never be diluted and that would spray the same every time. Most of all, I am not a fan of purchasing a product and not using it for a month or so, and then going to use again only to find that it won’t spray or apply properly. With this product, I wanted to make sure that you can use every drop, even if it sits on the shelf for weeks! So we chose an aerosol so the ingredients are mixed right every time, the formula doesn’t hurt the environment, and the cans can even be recycled! 

Well, we have done it! We are now ready to launch a successful product that people feel good about using, and that is widely available, online and offline. Remember, I have successfully launched products before, and in fact, have had some products on the market over 10 years now. I know how to get this done, and will again work tirelessly to make it happen. 

Now, all we need is your help to hit the ground running. We are looking for YOU to help take something you will love and make it a national product, and just maybe a household name. Now, I have been in sales and customer service my whole life. I know that even wonderful products cannot succeed without top-notch customer service. I decided that I would always stand behind the quality and the effectiveness of my product – I would guarantee that my customers would love it – each and every time. 

Happy customers are good customers and as I said, my existing customers showed me the way to a new product! 

This awesome all-in-one was more than just good for glass, and plastic and marble – it is amazing on stainless steel and can even be used to clean cars – inside AND out! I am always amazed when someone shows me how this product can replace another bottle of expensive polish or cleaner from their shelf!! But having the best product and a drive to take care of our customers is not enough if we can’t bring that product to consumers. I have been testing various formulas until I found the right mix for a truly all-in-one product, —and finally I believe I have everything I need to make this product a reality! 

Many of my customers of other products have tested the product and given it a thumbs up! Now we have partnered with a fantastic manufacturer here in America, and now I just need your help to make it real.

Koenig All-in-One is special. It is a class above other “all-in-one” products you see on the shelf today. It cleans, polishes, protects, and leaves a lustrous shine that lasts for weeks! It can safely be used on nearly every non-porous surface you can think of – home, office, even your boat, RV or car! Our polish will be manufactured right here in America, in conjunction with our small, Florida based family company.

I was just a guy looking for a better solution, and because of that I care about the quality of our product and the service we provide. Hopefully with your help we can bring this polish to the market and, FINALLY, provide a truly all-in-one solution for everyday people, everywhere. Many of my existing customers say they will be founding contributors to this new product, and you, too, have that opportunity! Would you like to be a founding contributor to make it happen? We need you! 

Risks and challenges

Our biggest obstacle is that we are a small company trying to compete with large companies that have more money than we do to market our product!

We already have all of the approvals, and relationships we need with the manufacturing factory. We have great relationships with our companies and distributors for our care detailing product. But this is a whole new segment - all-in-one cleaning and polishing and we are up against a lot of name-brands.

Fortunately -- we know our product is better and does more. So with your help, we will be able to overcome being "the little guy" and get our product into the hands of consumers and commercial buyers!

We have a great team in place, people who have been with us for years and new talent familiar with online marketing, and selling to these new vertical markets. We have been trying to really listen to our customers and prospects so that we deliver on our promise to deliver a product they really love.
