Describe the idea!
We want to make it easier and safer to repair your broken watersport equipment when it gets broken. Today epoxy and other toxic plastics are used to repair surfboards, kayaks etc. We have developed a very simple and functioning repair-kit based on renewables that does not contain any harmful plastics. You can easily fix your broken gear in 5 minutes and get back in the ocean. It is a healthy alternative for both you and the planet!
Who are you?
My name is Eric Holmström and this spring was the last of my studies and now I have acquired an M.Sc. in Engineering, Engineering Nanoscience, which has provided me with knowledge helpful in the development of this idea. I have had very different work experiences over the years, but I’ve recently had the realization that the flexibility and excitement of being your own employer has been too rewarding to pass up.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
Previously, we have focused a lot on developing the optimal product. However, these three months will be dedicated towards packaging, marketing and finally selling the product. Simultaneously, we will register the company Vik Sports AB.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
I hope to achieve an attractive product which offer good value for our customers. I hope to reach a higher amount of people and target audience with marketing through Instagram and Facebook. Lastly, I hope that our soon registered company is up and running by the end of this summer.
