For example, GameTree has a minimum investment of $100 and a fundraising goal of $100,000 and barely two weeks into their campaign they are 90% funded.

CrowdIt Unveils Crowdfunding Platform to Finance America’s Dreams

2 Apr

By Robert Hoskins

CrowdIt, the crowdfunding site that helps American’s finance the “American Dream,” announced early crowdfunding projects submitted to its site are now available for public preview through its new “Project Carousel” at www.crowdit.com.   CrowdIt will continue to populate the carousel with additional projects leading up to the official launch of funding activity on June 4.

CrowdIt acts as a “virtual incubator” and represents a new approach to crowdfunding by including peer-review feedback, mentoring and business networking as part of its offering. As part of its launch, CrowdIt will contribute $10,000 to the project that reaches the highest amount of funding by Aug. 18, 2013.

“CrowdIt has garnered the attention of entrepreneurs and startup communities that are looking for more than just funding support, and it shows in the type of projects being loaded into the site for launch on June 4,” said Jason Graf, co-founder and CEO of CrowdIt. “Every day we see more exciting projects come in and we can’t wait for the projects to go live so dreamers can move to the next step in their journey to success.”

Examples of projects being submitted to CrowdIt include:

  • EZ Learn Stencil Tablet – patent-pending technology helps children in math, reading and literacy skills by helping them to trace and recognize letters, numbers, words, shapes and colors.
  • Chalam – this songwriter from India who survived the great 2004 tsunami wants to record and make her music available for the world to hear.
  • Imagine IPD – this clean energy startup has a mission to implement its technology to introduce a new and innovative clean energy alternative to decrease the dependence on fossil fuels and reduce carbon footprints.
  • Chic Furniture on a Budget – this Tampa Fla. startup helps those on a tight budget find, restore and furnish their home or apartment through well-proven techniques.
  • Simply Sinful Lingerie Parties – After more than 20 years in retail and direct sales, this Dreamer wants to incorporate a love for sales and creativity to offer unique and fun products to the world.

CrowdIt’s vision is that crowdfunding needs to extend beyond the funding event – exemplified in its tagline, “Don’t Just Dream It: CrowdIt!” Its website is architected to offer a new crowdfunding experience and to optimize the crowd in all facets of the site – from project evaluation and acceptance to peer review and networking.

The CrowdIt site includes:

  • Flexible Funding – CrowdIt offers Dreamers the flexibility to fund either “all” or “partial” projects based upon the unique needs of the campaign.
  • Networking – CrowdIt incorporates social networking into its site to encourage mentoring and business-to-business networking.
  • Peer Review – CrowdIt believes in the “power of the crowd” to provide feedback for project proposals, ideas and strategies presented by Dreamers.
  • Interactivity – CrowdIt is a highly social, interactive and collaborative community site that provides an engaging experience for all who visit and participate in it.
  • Crowd Power – unlike other crowdfunding sites, CrowdIt is designed to empower the community to drive decisions concerning project review and acceptance, feedback and advice, and input for future features to improve the site.

CrowdIt is now accepting crowdfunding projects and projects will go live on the site June 4, 2013. The company is contributing $10,000 to the project that reaches the highest amount of funding by Aug. 18, 2013, 75 days after the go-live date.

Based in America’s heartland of Springfield, MO, CrowdIt is the crowdfunding site for believers of the New American Dream. Its crowdfunding site goes beyond just funding great ideas, but focuses on supporting success through peer and expert advisory support, business networking and sharing of best practices and knowledge. CrowdIt’s belief is that crowdfunding will help drive the next wave in innovation and economic expansion, and underpins its mission to support small business growth.

Revel Body Promises Good Vibrations to Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Funders

6 Mar

By Robert Hoskins

Revel Body launched a new Indiegogo campaign to help bring the world’s first sonic vibrator™ to America’s bedrooms. The first major development in vibrator technology in nearly 50 years, the Revel Body sonic vibrator will offer more than three times the vibration range of today’s battery powered vibrators. Pulling inspiration from an unlikely source – sonic toothbrushes – the TrueSonic® adjustable resonating motor is the first of its kind, solving many of the issues seen with conventional battery powered vibrators while adding a lot more fun and excitement.

Revel Body Launches Indiegogo Campaign to Make World’s First Sonic Vibrator

“We realized the majority of devices in this big, competitive industry all use the same class of rotary motors, and basically all experienced the same issues,” said Robin Elenga, founder and CEO of Revel Body. “Companies compete on everything from color and shape to packaging and price, but never vibration. Yet, vibration is the primary function of these devices. We knew we could build a better motor and product that together, would offer users increased sensation and a better experience overall.”

Research and focus groups led to the discovery of five main issues with today’s conventional battery-powered vibrators: noise, battery-life, reliability, ergonomics and a limited range of vibration. The Revel Body sonic vibrator and TrueSonic technology – the result of nearly two years of research and product testing – solve many of these issues by offering more power, less noise, wider range of vibration, longer lifespan and a thoughtful design.

Unlike traditional rotary motors, which typically vibrate at a range of about 60-100Hz, TrueSonic resonating motors provide a significantly wider range of vibration – adjustable between 24-200Hz* – and substantially more power than any other battery-powered vibrator. With only a single moving part, TrueSonic motors are also extremely quiet and efficient, lasting at least four times longer than traditional rotary motors.

Compared to current vibrator technology, the TrueSonic technology and Revel Body sonic vibrator will offer:

  •     More than 200 percent wider vibration range
  •     90 percent reduction in noise
  •     50 percent more power
  •     80 percent less vibration to the hand

In addition to revolutionizing the technology, Revel Body hopes to use its products to raise awareness for sexual wellness. Working with the leading experts in the industry, such as renowned sociologist Dr. Pepper Schwartz, Revel Body has focused on developing an approachable product, one that worked for everyone and helped erase the stigma around ‘”sex toys.” The Revel Body’s spherical shape is easy to handle and is made from high-grade body-safe silicon avoiding the use of phthalates, nickel-plated parts and other harmful chemicals.

Revel Body is now pursuing an Indiegogo campaign to bring its revolutionary product and technology to market. By funding the project, backers allow Revel Body to overcome the hurdles of manufacturing, as well as open the door for TrueSonic technology to be introduced into a host of new and exciting products.

“We’re on a mission to develop innovative technology and amazing products that make people’s lives better. Incidentally, we don’t think of what we make as sex toys,” added Elenga. “We think of them as lifestyle products that enhance sexual wellbeing for women, men and couples. By funding our campaign, you allow us to focus on driving the change to better, more adaptable sexual wellness products, and make a lot of people very happy in the process.”

Indiegogo.com is a crowdfunding platform that allows companies like Revel Body to raise money for a project or product before it is created. Interested individuals can financially back Revel Body at various levels, and if the project’s $100,000 goal is met, backers receive a reward that corresponds with their level of support, with pledges starting as low as $5.
