Discussion on the product/service

Can you describe your product/service to us?
Think about how cool it would be that the moment you enter your hotel room and open up a suitcase all the clothes magically appear stored in the wardrobe.. Now, imagine a suitcase that allows exactly that with just one pull.

How did you get to an idea to start with this?
I was thinking about how I always wear wrinkled clothes on my trips because I use it directly from the suitcase. I just want to go out and explore. That triggered an idea which I thoroughly elaborated in the following months.

What are your plans for the future?
Expand the travel gear gamut, develop new concepts, make suitcase personalization for every feature.

FRC program

Can you tell us something about your experience in the FRC accelerator program?
