In my opinion as an entrepreneur and even as a hobbyist one has to learn when to stop and abandon a project. This printer has clearly become a rabbit hole to hell, from the get go they had problems after problems. Just thinking that you can fix something is not enough, in the end you have to deliver and proof that you actually fixed the issues and that the thing can perform as promised. They failed, pissed 3 million down the drain, they must be totaly deluded.
We are doing something we should have done a long time ago. We are speaking with investors.
Wrong, instead of pissing more money away, they should hired someone with expertise in product design / bringing it to marked a long time ago.
Up until now, we have been on our own. We believed investors would get in the way, but that was immature. It’s time to put that thinking behind us, and start working with people who have the resources and experience to manufacture a product at this scale, and build a sustainable business.
Next season on shark tank: Tiko asking for money and people that do all the work.
Well, we have our theories, and we believe that Tiko as a platform is exceptionally well positioned for this future. Granted, these technologies need some re-engineering, more testing, and much better execution, but the potential is still there. It turns out there are people who feel the same way...
Again, totally deluded, exceptionally well positioned for this future ? Not a working product, no money left, staff laid off. Some re-engineering, reality is if they can convince someone to invest in this mess, they have to start from scratch...
BTW found this in the comment section, seems that there is a Xiaomi ripp off version
