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 Jakob Mattsson and I just finished my master in engineering nanoscience. No matter work experience I have come to the conclusion that I want to form my everyday life by working on my own ideas to find stimulation and flexibility. Together with Eric Holmström I now have the opportunity to combine my interest in surfing with my educational knowledge.
What will you do during these three months? How will you spend the time?
Since we have our product rather established and complete, we will focus on packaging, marketing and simultaneously registering the company Vik Sports AB. We will also focus on the feedback from close customers to optimise our product.
What do you expect to achieve during Leapfrogs?
I expect us to achieve an attractive product that we proudly can offer to retailers and private customers. I hope to reach out to more watersport users with marketing through Facebook and Instagram to get pre-orders of our product. I also want to have Vik Sports AB registered and running in the end of the summer.
