Production and Fulfillment Plan:

In an effort to be transparent and open we have provided a detailed production and fulfillment plan for both the hardware side and the software side of the Garage Beacon project.

We have manufactured the first 1,000 units of Garage Beacon prior to launching on Kickstarter. The iOS app is already published on apple's app store. At the conclusion of our campaign we will have the android version published. It's that simple. 

Garage Beacon units will ship at the end of our Kickstarter campaign.

It is important for us to help other people execute their ideas, which is why we are pledging 5% back towards another Kickstarter project in the event we are funded. This is called Kicking It Forward and here is the movement's website:

Risks and challenges

We have mitigated our risk by manufacturing the first 1,000 units and creating the iOS App prior to launching on Kickstarter.
