Dear All,

This is to serve as basic research before me starting company making gaming accessories.

Main focus is on successful product launch of one product only.
Fallowing that there is plan to expand production to mice and keyboards.
Initial sale only in Europe and with time in US.

Here's brief description of first product:
What: I-2/Icemat like mouse pad
Material: toughen glass ( doesn't break even if you throw it on the floor )
Color: black
Sizes available: 25cm x 30cm, 35cm x 40cm
Logo: small at right corner, just brand/prodct name in blue plasma colour
Feet: Rubber at all corners
Dedicated for sensor: laser and optical
Performance: same as I-2
Packaging: containing information on acceleration of mice on the surcafe and max perfrect control from popular mice.

Please help by participating in pool.

Please add anything you think would enhance product.

I hope you have decent capital and good lawyers to oversee any patent use, a business plan that extends at least 5 years etc.. otherwise don't bother.

I'm telling you now.

Dreams are free, Reality costs.

Hi
I hope you're wrong. If everyone starting new product would think like that they would never start.
The capital is there so don't worry.

He isn't wrong, how are you going to start a business of any sort without a business plan
It's one thing to ask about information on designing a mouse pad for personal use or even small-scale production, and another by starting your own company.
Just because you have the initial capital doesn't mean it will be successful in the long term.

Oh I didn't mean the business plan bit, but the one about being sued, having money for lawyers.

There are two companies that backing up the venture. One is importer of good from China, and second is exclusive goods sale.
Both have been on the market for more then 10 years so I'm pretty sure those people know bit or two on how to do good business.

I have came idea for the business and my role is mostly creative. Successful pitch was mainly based on long term prospects of gaming market.

I like the last one. Easy to read, not explicit and shouldn't cause too much problems with tracking if on a mousepad.
