Hello guys,

 

First let us wish you a happy New Year 2021! We sincerely hope the best for you and your families and that the COViD-19 situation will be over soon. 2020 was one more year of frustration for us all, but if we only keep that in mind we sink. 2020 was also a year where we have started delivering to you guys, where we have made our 2nd production, where we have found B2B/B2G customers and signed with a lot of distributors. All this means progress as it is one more step towards having a sustainable business. All this is possible because of you, and we thank you, a lot.

Very briefly, our CEO spent 4 months in Korea participating in a governmental acceleration program. We had the opportunity to tighten our connections with Samsung Electronics so it was a valuable experience and Miraxess will be ready to launch in the Korea market in 2022.

Now, talking about the crowdfunding let us be clear. Miraxess’s priority cannot be to deliver all the backers immediately. You can take many examples of startups who failed because they put on high priority their backers and did not have any other sources of revenues afterwards. Of course, on the other hand, there are some who succeed, but they usually have experience or funds to start with, which was not our case. So just a quick message to those of you who constantly try to knock off our course: it is your freedom to complain but you are putting the project in danger for us all. Keep doing this if you wish to ruin 5 years of tears and sweat, put people unemployed, and most importantly not get your Mirabook.

Now for those who are patient and supportive, thank you very much, we receive your messages everyday and we have good news for you. Miraxess has partnered with a big French industrial group to support us on funding the production. This way we will be able to keep our production running in the near future and hopefully grow our volumes more easily to deliver to all of you.

 

We expect 1400 units coming in March and more in May if we do not suffer some delays due to the situation. With more and more people in need of a laptop, big OEMs have millions of orders in backlog making some components really hard to supply for smaller companies like ours. Our objective is to deliver 200 of you by March, 3 new partnerships, and bigger orders in B2B.

 

Again, all the Mirateam is wishing you the best for 2021 and be sure that we are dedicated to you guys.

If you have any questions and positive comments, feel free to reach us out by email or social media.

 

Cheers

Dear backers,

 

We hope that the COVID19 situation is better in your area. Like we said last time, an economic crisis is striking all over the world and one of our Chinese suppliers failed to deliver the electronic boards on time. Since the end of June we have tried to find different solutions. The supplier wanted Miraxess to lend him money, but we refused because of the high risk. We then asked our factory to do so, and after 2 weeks of negotiation our factory accepted but the supplier refused for unknown reasons.  By the time we agreed on something it was already August, and now the supplier said that he found a solution and he will deliver the boards mid-august.

 

As you can see, making a production with such a supplier is something tricky and uncertain, that is why we are doing our possible to change it for next production. Talking about next production, this will contain all your Mirabooks and is now planned to happen in late October, early November. Once we receive the money from the sales of the current production, we will immediately order the next ones.

On the good news, Miraxess has been selected by the Korean Ministry of Startup & SME to participate in an acceleration program in Seoul for 3 months. This will be the opportunity to launch in Korean market, sign partnerships and meet investors to ensure our future.

 

We know some of you will blame our team for the delays and it is their right to do so, however, we will focus on the positive comments because we have created something great thanks to all of you.

 

Be safe, take care, and see you next time ?

 

Cheers

Dear supporters,

 

We hope you guys are all safe and well from the recent situation.  Many companies and project will suffer from the economic crisis. Be reassured, it will not be the case for Miraxess. There are disasters but there are also opportunities opening to us all. The Mirabook and Samsung DeX are a great solution to the recent telework trend all over the world. In addition to that, we have identified that a Mirabook fleet replacing a laptop fleet can create 70% of savings on the company TCO (Total cost of Ownership). For this reason, many groups, companies or public organizations are dealing with us today. Our little startup is about to grow very shortly with new hiring and, we hope, a bright future. If you think your company can be interested, let us know ?

(Picture of our CEO Yanis this week end, showing the Mirabook to one of our investor in Geneva)

What is happening now?

At the moment we are finalizing the last details of our orders to the factory. This order includes all accessories, and of course all Mirabook for you guys. Please be sure to confirm your order on Backerkit platform in the next few days. This order includes many other customers and we are awaiting their payment before purchasing components.

The production which was suppose to be done in May is finally coming in July. There are 2 main reasons to this. The plastic supplier has delivered faulty button parts while the Board manufacturer has financial troubles and cannot deliver the rest of his production.

 

Everything always takes longer than expected. We are getting used to this frustration. We are deeply sorry for all of this, and hope you'll all be happy when you'll get your hands on this product you helped us build. We would like to thank our Japanese partner for all his support and effort since the beginning on the project. We now have tremendous opportunities on the Japanese market. 

 

The wait is almost over, thank you for your patience, and thank you for your support.

Hello guys,

We hope that you are all safe from COVID19. In this period of quarantine, our CEO has made a video presenting its computing setup at home. Please check out, like, & share ;)

 

This future Miraxess is trying to build is possible because you have contributed to our first project. Thank you very much, you are the best.

 

Please take care of you and your family during the COVID crisis.

Hello guys,

 

I hope you are all safe considering the actual situation with COVID-19. Be sure that we have taken the necessary actions for our team to stay as safe as possible during this period of economic slowdown.

Our startup is largely suffering from this and we have to be very careful on our next moves to not compromise our financial situation.

Chinese suppliers were off for few months but now everything is just starting to get back to "normal". The production that was suppose to happen in March will happen end of April. We are actually  organising everything up with the assembly factory.

 

 

The GOOD NEWS :

We have shipped Mirabook to  5% of backers few days ago and we're in the process of delivering 10% more between May and June through our japanese distributor HTL.

We all want to go faster, but it is still progress and we should keep being positive. Be sure that we're dealing with what we have in hands. Our new target is to deliver 100% of you guys before September.

Talking about Japan, our partner has just launched a crowdfunding campaign to grow their order. https://www.makuake.com/project/mirabook/?utm_source=mirabook&utm_medium=sns_share_tw

If you are in Japan and wants to get a Mirabook for June, you are free to participate or share the campaign. For those who do no see this as fair considering you ordered first:

- New Japanese backers don't buy Mirabook at the same price.

-Sales channels are in place and we have to take this opportunity to ensure financial viability and secure your delivery afterwards.

-Our partner is also an Indiegogo backer and big supporter of the project.

 

One more thing, you'd be happy to hear that we are starting to work with UK Police forces, here is a picture of the product you have contributed to create, in action.

 

Thank you for your support and for your positive attitude and please be safe during this special period.

 

Cheers,

 

-The MiraTeam.
