What attributes will make this idea/product successful? Why do you believe that those features will create success?

One of the attributes that will make it successful is that it is cloud based, infinitely replicable and we have done all the research and development for more than 8 years to ensure it can operate in the worlds toughest environments.

Explain how you (your team) will execute to make this idea/product successful? What gives you (your team) an advantage over others already in the market or new to this market?

Artisan&You is more than an idea - we've been implementing it ourselves across 7 countries and more than 3500 artisans and farmers. We are at an advantage because we designed and built the technology from the ground up which means we can be nimble when adjustments are needed to the technology. We have a software engineer on our team and an award winning social entrepreneur working together to constant improve and advance the technology.
