Risks and mitigations:
We think the major risk could be have an huge success: We have the material for a first print run, the incorporations to our team and the setup of a new production line. Everything according to the quantity we think we can reach. But reach a huge success is one of the possibilities, so we have an strategy based on new incorporations and the expansion of the production line to solve it. Our suppliers are aware of this possibility too.
This is the reason for a conservative schedule. We must be prepared in any case.
Put a new product in the market is always a challenge; and many more if is a newest product; but is a technology we dominate and we think that this is the moment.
