Your comments got me thinking with regard to business strategy. Looking at Venvstas Kickstarter site the projected capital requested is very small. I'm not too sure whether the rule of thumb in my generation with starting a company still applies in this electronic driven generation. It was recognized that it usually took 5 years before a new company began to start seeing a return on the initial investment. Therefore sufficient capital is necessary to sustain a project over that period. Anyone willing to Invest in a commercial project will only take a calculated risk, after seeing market research undertaken before doing so to see if there is niche that can successfully be filled.

 

One other problem anyone who is an artist designer faces is trying to manage a business and at the same time designing and making a project singlehandedly to its fruition. I have friends who are very good at what they do, but realize that it never works, and needed someone else to focus on the management and controlling the financial side, therefore freeing themselves up.

exactly. it should be like that.

If it's any consolation TWSBI were experiencing serious cracking problems in the material they were using. The seemingly high number of complaints appearing on FPN over quite a long period of time with members buying these pens appeared to be very high! The company was dealing with the problem replacing parts free of charge along the way, and it didn't stop some members continuing to buy the pens despite of this frustration. It also appears that TWSBI are now successfully selling the pen along with other design options.

 

Teething problems can be expected in any endeavor, which can usually be solved with extensive testing of the prototype before it is introduced onto the market. Your perseverance may well pay dividends in the end.


They came as a boon, and a blessing to men,
The Pickwick, the Owl and the Waverley pen

Sincerely yours,

Pickwick

That's true, as said, the reviewed pens are very early, and when I was working on the prototypes I was using a construction technique that I changed while producing, this made things easier but resulted quite a big mistake. I did a jump from metal pens to carbon pens, and I accepted carbon fiber to be quite homogeneous and well, it is not. Now with a firm from Germany that makes super car chasiss we're developing a new carbon V but with a different technique, the pen will be made only in two pieces, meanwhile I set the making of the carbon v in the same fashion of the prototypes, so it takes longer to make, but the tolerances are perfect, and therefore the delay that was and is on that pen. But, as long as you assume your mistakes, change the pen, or discontinue the model, at least you are honest and accept that some things are taking a longer way. I started designing pencils actually, and making them. After its first year my venerable Parker had the cap cracked, was one of those very cheap student Parkers, My father found it and its a 30 year old pen, still there, writing, I never thought when using it and kids looking at me like a weird boy, that I would ever be designing this type of objects...
