Purpose and goal
LunaMicro develops textile pumps that transport water from one side of the “fabric” to the other. These textile pumps can e.g., be used in garments to control sweat transportation. The goal with this project is to reach a much broader market and to further develop LunaMicro´s technology and business model for new products for sale in traditional retail outlets.
Expected results and effects
The expected result and effect from the project is that LunaMicro will reach a broader market for its technology where the first step is a collaboration with a few "brand owners". In collaboration with these brand owners, a product will be close to launching after the completion of this project. Scalable production of textile pumps and development of the business model is expected to lead to further expansion and growth of LunaMicro in other markets after the project.
Planned approach and implementation
1. Establish a pilot-scale production line for our pumps. 2. Determine an appropriate business model for our business-to-business interactions. 3. In collaboration with “brand owners” develop and launch a product with LunaMicro´s technology integrated
