Because endless coffee and DNA replication goes only so far

Radbot Pleading poverty, we don't have huge quantities of cash to throw at the necessary elements of a crowdfunding campaign such as the main video and its fleet of videolets for social meeja channels.

Or "efficient": quick, find me a CFO to make it sound better!

So one way to get this material made is to have people working on it remotely who don't have to pay London-level rents and beer bills.

In my previous startup, the coding was done in Malta considerably cheaper but no less well than in London.

One problem with outsourcing is the lack of the water-cooler effect: people a long way away may not understand the way you want things done that wasn't in any formal spec, or get your body language about urgency and which bits really matter and which bits don't.
