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

SkateYou embraces and evolves creatively the skateboarding society. A fast growing, specialised and clearly defined 15 million users market. It offers worldwide online trick video and photo competitions on a permanent basis.

SkateYou is a very competitive engagement. It motivates skaters to group and participate in these contests by rewarding the posting of video or photo achievements in coins. Best contenders means more coins earned, which gives free access to the most sought after skate related products, since they are available only through SkateYou coins and one cannot buy in the market.

The voting of best tricks is done by the skaters themselves, therefore the accumulation of coins depends on the response of the skating community and is totally unbiased.

Top contenders receive cash prizes every month.

Technology

A full social media platform. Features such as mention, hashtag, comments and so on.

A GPS is integrated covering more than 30k free Skate spots/shops/parks worldwide. This is the largest existing database dedicated exclusively to skaters. Unique skateboarding navigation system in the world. (feet x 1.7 speed) One click to spot. One click to navigate. Directions by foot, driving, public transport or by your skate.

Brand recognition

Facebook page of 230k followers expanding by 2k weekly.

30.000+ mobile users & another 30k browser registrations.

100 Pro skaters with millions of followers each actively support SkateYou, whereas top skate related brands including Vans are our sponsors.

Nevertheless, after examining our users preferences in our coin shop we realised that the clear best selling product is the SkateYou board , followed by the SkateYou wheels, rather than other top branded sponsored products. A clear indication of the SkateYou brand vs established top players in the industry.

Business Issue

The demand for SkateYou products exceeds by far our supply capabilities. Whenever Skate you products are on offer, they are sold out by the hundreds in a matter of minutes. Be it skate boards, wheels, socks or T-shirts. Be it against coins or cash. This unprecedented demand has to be satisfied and SkateYou needs to invest in the organisation and the production of the relevant products.

Additionally SkateYou has to continue investing in its innovative edge technology in a fast growing technological environment in order to remain always on top.

Business Opportunity/Solution

You, by means of assisting in the further development of a healthy and clean social platform. The SkateYou App and brand.

Team

SkateYou still consists of only a team of 3 developers and our CEO, founder and dedicated skateboarder Jerry, holder of a B.A. in Marketing from the International University of Monaco in Monte Carlo.

Thank You

Risks and challenges

There is no risk. The project is successfully launched, completed, approved and available for free on both Apple & Play store since late 2014. There is a free browser version including all the in-app features too.

The only challenge is to maintain the high quality standards of the project and its level of up to date technology, while it keeps on growing. Such a task demands an ongoing expansion of our servers & development team on an ongoing basis.

Boards and wheels have already been produced for coins and had a promotional character for the app. They were never sold for cash but only against 50 SkateYou earned coins, making remarkable breakthrough.
