Hi Tetsuko ,

Great to see you in the Challenge. I'm curious, what would be your plan to scale this idea?

Additionally, I did want to ensure you were aware that the goal of this challenge is not to source concepts that Nike would bring to market under their own brand. Rather, the goal of this Challenge is to support innovators in creating their own products and ventures using Nike Grind materials, but independent of Nike, with the potential for partnership.

Excited to learn more!

Hello, Lauren.
Thank you very much for your help.
I am hoping to have partners to create the products because I do not have resources.
