Problems

Standard hives are fine-tuned for maximalization of honey production. Production processes are decades old with minimum innovation in place. Whole market segment struggles to find optimal hive.

  • Standard hives are very heavy to lift and not suitable for women and elderly.
  • Bee health is not a priority in standard hives.
  • User experience while managing the hives is ignored.

    Solutions 

    kozahive is a new company which follows new trends in bee research. It aims for neglected market group of hobby beekeepers and educational institutions. Maximalization honey production is not #1 priority but still allows to extract honey the standard way. 

    • Horizontal hive eliminates the need of lifting heavy objects. 
    • Focus also on other parameters than honey production.
    • Beekeeping as a relaxing experience, not heavy work.

    Funding Goals

    Expansion on foreign markets together with educational videos due to superstitions and false information about beekeeping. Overall boost of sales is a priority.

    FAQs

    Why would anyone want kozahive? 

    Overall trend is shifting from honey production towards ecologically friendly approach. Bees are not just a mean for honey production but integral part of our ecosystem. Kozahive is best suited for this approach. 

    What is the greatest kozahive problem?

    Superstitions. Standard beekeepers fail to understand that honey production may not be a priority. Therefore there is a misinformation about difficulty and time demands. It's like large scale farmer discouraging people with garden to grow own tomatoes because you need to wake up at 4 a.m. and start a tractor.

    What else is planned?

    Honeycomb honey is more and more popular with professional beekeepers. Kozahive plans to aim on this segment with different shapes of honeycombs inside frames. This will allow to aim for B2B with recurring sales.
