Detroit is home to some of the best designers, engineers and manufacturers in the world. The city had fallen on hard times, but to our delight, better times are coming our way. We see a spark in the Motor City. New tech ventures are popping up all over town and we are one of them.

With your support we can accelerate Detroit's resurgence. When people used to say “Built in America”, they meant Detroit. And Detroit was once the greatest manufacturing city in the world. In choosing Detroit as Veiltower’s global headquarters we put this one step closer.

 It’s our goal for Veiltower to grow into a trusted part of your everyday life. To achieve this, Veiltower will eventually be coded with collective computing and a Veiltower Marketplace in mind.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

We want you to feel confident you’re getting a top-drawer product, and that means keeping you in the loop about our specific challenges and risks. That also means we’re doing things a little differently than most Kickstarter campaigns.

We’re offering Veiltower with a complete money back guarantee for any promised features that we can’t deliver.That way, you can be sure you’ll receive exactly what you paid for. Sounds pretty good, right? Well there’s something in it for us, too. Read on.

Our money-back guarantee means that at any time, if a manufacturer tries to yank us around, we can simply refund all the money and walk away. No deal. Of course, we never want it to come to that. We don’t anticipate it. But we always like to have “a fork up our sleeve”.

Production delays are a possibility. Our manufacturer has guaranteed the dates to complete production, but we can’t completely rule out unforeseen circumstances that require us to adjust our timeline.

Import restrictions could be imposed. To date we’re not aware of any reason that restrictions would be imposed, particularly in the US. However, the privacy offered by Veiltower makes surveillance significantly more difficult for government agencies. We’re prepared to take legal action in the case that this becomes an issue.

We designed ALL of the Veiltower features seen in the video. Our core-competencies are strategy, product design, product development, product management, software development, user experience, user interaction, project management, business planning, finance and control. Bottom line: we’re very seasoned entrepreneurs.

Most of the features--but not all--have been built by us. But doing it all would be foolish and impossible. We don't own a manufacturing plant. We don't believe we’re the best voice and AI developers (plus we want to launch in 9 months, not 9 years). We’ve contracted these two major features of Veiltower to our trusted partners.

We’ve negotiated in good faith with our partners and signed LOI's and MOU's, but at the end of the day we don’t fully control these individuals. This brings in an element of risk.

Veiltower’s innovation lies in the way it melds existing hardware and software features. That’s good news, as it reduces the project risk. Sometimes we opt to use open source software. Sometimes we build it ourselves, and other times we source it out. The risk varies because of these factors.

If we hit a snag during manufacturing, we might need to adapt the design or choose an alternative material. Moderate risk of changes to the exterior design, specifications, performance or materials used.

During final QA testing we’ll be able to do full consumer testing, like acceptable wear and tear and shipment damage risks. Depending on the results of these tests, we may need to make slight modifications to the materials. But again, if we can’t deliver, you get your money back!
