28 Jun

To date, the new crowdfunding platform has successfully raised $8.2 million for product development and guarantees delivery for crowdfunded pre-orders

By Robert HoskinsCrowdfunding PR

Fulton, MarylandFitForLaunch announced the launch of its new platform for crowdfunding pre-orders.

Should a business fail to deliver within 12 months, FitForLaunch will either refund their purchase or secure an equal or better replacement.

FitForLaunch.com Launches Rewards Crowdfunding Campaigns for Enomad, Knops, M3 and Snapmaker

Every company that joins FitForLaunch undergoes a thorough vetting in 5 key areas: Market feasibility, technical feasibility, production feasibility, financial feasibility and creator feasibility. Each key area is evaluated by a team of subject matter experts; only companies that are viable in all key areas are permitted to join the platform and considered fit for launch.

FitForLaunch debuted in June 2017 with four companies (M3D, Snapmaker, Knops, and Enomad) that have already had successful crowdfunding campaigns representing a total of $8.2 million raised for product development. FitForLaunch expects to add a dozen additional vetted companies every month and aims to help them increase pre-order revenues by addressing new markets.

FitForLaunch companies also benefit by having access to strategic advice in areas of marketing, manufacturing, employment, and even taxes.  Helping companies learn how to keep their costs down and have sound strategies maximizes their chance of success.  FitForLaunch’s experience allows us to help companies avoid pitfalls and save hundreds of thousands, if not millions.  A short conversation with an expert can have a huge impact and is an additional value for companies joining the platform.

FitForLaunch encourages companies with new products to take pre-orders using a crowdfunding-type mechanism as opposed to setting up their own ecommerce site until they are in stock.  Leveraging a platform like FitForLaunch also helps protect them from fraud, chargebacks and merchant processor holdback reserves.  Many creators do not realize that credit card processors have the potential to devastate a startup by denying them access to the funds they’ve raised.  New companies also may lack the resources for setting up their own ecommerce site and maintaining it along with screening purchases against fraud and dealing with chargebacks.

FitForLaunch was born out of witnessing failures that were predictable due to our fundamental understanding of the crowdfunding space and experience with manufacturing operations.  We saw trust in the crowdfunding space falling and wanted to do something about it.  We developed a proprietary system for predicting success – our own underwriting process for gaging risk.  We then surveyed buyers and found an underserved market of purchasers that would pre-order projects only if given a guarantee, even with a significant additional fee.  FitForLaunch was then setup as a way to effectively communicate and support our own vetting and guarantee process.

 The Ambi Climate Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room’s Ambient Temperature and Humidity

27 Jun

The Ambi Climate uses artificial intelligence (AI) software to generate temperature and humidity profiles and then collects and learns from actual user comfort feedback via a smartphone app to develop real world, year round profiles

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Hong Kong – Optimizing AC use is not an easy task, which is why the Ambi Climate 2 makes use of artificial intelligence to personalize ambient conditions. Apparently, a lot of people loved the Ambi Climate unit’s value-added business proposition so much that Ambi Labs raised over HK$1,215,900 from 1,016 backers via its Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign that ended on June 22, 2017.

 The Ambi Climate that Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room's Ambient Temperature and Humidity

The Ambi Climate that Draws on Data from Sensors and User Feedback to Automatically Tweak a Room’s Ambient Temperature and Humidity

The Ambi Climate was created by Ambi Labs, a Hong Kong-based company founded by Julian Lee, Paul Sykes, and Tim Chang. They state their mission as being a sort of ‘leave no man behind’ approach to technology, wherein aged appliances are given a makeover using modern innovation. With the second edition of the Ambi Climate, the aim remains to make air conditioners more energy-efficient and customizable.

The device achieves that with the help of AI software, which studies user comfort and the corresponding conditions to create unique profiles for them. It finds out how comfortable a user is at any given time via a mobile app, where you can tell the device how much its estimation of your comfort level differs from what it actually is. As you do that over different months and passing seasons, the AI learns your individual preferences and optimizes the temperature accordingly.

While user feedback is one way the Ambi Climate tweaks its own operation, it isn’t the only way. The device uses a variety of sensors to track such factors as humidity and sunlight. It also gathers data from the Web to understand weather trends during that time of year, clothing people are most likely to have on, and temperature variations at different times of the day. It uses all this information to deliver the most appropriate climate control automatically. According to the creators, that leads to as much as 30 percent savings in power bills.

Ambi Climate can be paired with air conditioners using the Ambi Climate App, which is available for Android and iOS users. Once that’s done, you can place the device in view of the AC and leave it to do its thing. The app also enables a geo-location feature; the Ambi Climate finds out when you’re about to get home and fires up the AC, so conditions are perfect as you walk in. You can tie those features in with other smart home IOT paraphernalia thanks to IFTTT and Amazon Alexa integrations.

X SUIT Zips Past $100,000 on Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign as Demand Quickly Grows for the Suit of the Future

26 Jun

XYZ Groups’ Fashion-Tech Stretch Suit is liquid and stain repellent, wrinkle resistant, odor proof, has 12 travel pockets and is made of 100% stretch material

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Shanghai, China – The X SUIT, made for young professionals, the corporate manager and all men in between who want to look sharp and modern while they dress in comfort, has more than doubled its $50,000 crowdfunding during the first week of it Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign.

XYZ Group's modern and stylish X SUIT is transforming functional fashion technology. It's the world's first full stretch suit; liquid & stain repellent, wrinkle resistant and odor proof

XYZ Group’s modern and stylish X SUIT is transforming functional fashion technology. It’s the world’s first full stretch suit; liquid & stain repellent, wrinkle resistant and odor proof

According to X SUIT’s designer Max Perez, “X SUITS accommodate a high level of activity and movement for the young modern business professional, and can be worn for days without showing signs of wear or odor.”

The X Shell Fabric is equipped with four-way stretch capabilities and an elasticized lining, allowing the wearer to experience a full range of motion which is unattainable in a traditional suit. The added Tensile Thread allows the seams to move with the garment, adding durability.

Perez says, “The suit’s durability over several days also makes it the ultimate in travel accessories.”

The X SUITS’ X Shield® has both liquid- and stain-repellency and can adapt to any weather situation or unfortunate spill. The technology repels liquids and stains alike, keeping the X SUIT looking sharp and clean. Simply pouring water over any stain will cause it to roll off the fabric.

The X Shield further equips the X SUIT with Wrinkle Defense technology making it the perfect travel suit. The X SUIT can be packed in any suitcase and come out without wrinkles.

X SUITS’ inner lining has been specially paneled with X Membrane® to Neutralize Odors and keep it smelling fresh all day and night. Each fiber in the lining attracts, isolates, and neutralizes odors immediately, and with quick dry capabilities, keeps sweat stains to a minimal.

The X SUIT is offered in 14 custom sizes and will sell at the fraction of the cost of a similar product. Kickstarter backers will receive their suits approximately three months after funding.

X SUIT Features include:

  • 12 discrete pockets for specific functionality
  • Wrinkle-free and easily packable – perfect for corporate travel
  • Phone compartment holds any size phone
  • Modern yet classic design
  • Four-way stretch fabric with shape retention
  • Elasticized, flexible waistband construction
  • Odor Neutralizing and Quick Dry Lining
  • Liquid and Stain Repellent
  • Metal anodized buttons and zippers
  • Minimized maintenance and dry-cleaning

Perez says X SUIT is an ideal choice for the young professional who wants to look sharp and modern, and for the corporate manager who is looking for comfort in his work apparel.

“This is the suit for the stylish man on the go, and it’s the only suit he will ever need,” Perez added. “Our stretch fabric and lining makes the suit fit like its tailor-made. We reduce fabric in areas such as the arms and waist to give the suit a true fitted appearance without feeling stiff or binding.”

X SUIT was created by XYZ Group, which is based in Shanghai and run by Canadian brothers Max, Reouven and Nathaniel Perez. The Perez brothers are veteran apparel manufacturers with more than 30 years combined garment manufacturing experience.

Their manufacturing partners have contributed to some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including suits in the Hugo Boss, Calvin Klein and Zara lines and is highly skilled with technology applications and tailoring.

XYZ Group and their manufacturing partners have spent more than two years creating and testing dozens of prototypes to arrive at the X SUIT design. They intend to continue to create smart, stylish and comfortable fashion for people on the go.

Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Introduces Cool New Tool for Restaurants to Safely Devein Lobsters that Is Super Fast and More Thorough than Using a Broken Antennae

26 Jun

 The patent-pending Lobster Deveiner is currently the only tool on the market that can quickly and effectively clean any lobster properly

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Fort Lauderdale, Florida – Scott Mobley, firefighter and creator of the first Lobster Deveining Tool, is launching his first Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign on Saturday, July 1, 2017. Mobley has created the first ever tool to devein lobster safely, quickly, and more efficiently than any other method. He has appropriately named his company “D Vein.”

Scott Mobley demonstrating how simple it is to prepare lobster using the Lobster Deveining Tool

As a fire fighter from Broward Sheriff’s Office Fire Rescue, Mobley has learned to cherish every day and make it count, as it could be his last. On his days off, Mobley enjoys fishing and diving, especially for lobsters. Since he was young, Mobley dreaded cleaning spiny lobsters with their broken antennae the old-fashioned way and now, 20+ years later, Mobley has created the first Lobster Deveiner designed to remove the intestinal tract without the hassle.

Mobley was inspired to create this one-of-a-kind tool from his love of fishing and catching lobster. This is the very first product ever invented to devein and properly clean lobster.

The Lobster Deveiner Tool is currently the only tool on the market that can quickly and effectively clean any lobster properly. This tool is patent-pending and works great and has been getting outstanding reviews and the feedback from all of the people in the lobster fishing business that have seen it.

“Let me just say, the days of dreading cleaning the lobsters we catch are long gone. Some people might just say, ‘Why not just use the free antennae?’  You could, but if you clean as many lobsters as we do, we recommend buying the $8 lobster cleaning tool.  It is just so much faster, easier and more dependable than using a broken antennae.”-B. Jax

“Saves a lot of time, works really well. Greatest invention yet for lobster season.”- LA Livin

D Vein will be available exclusively online via Kickstarter beginning Saturday, July 1 at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/219595839/911454420?token=d3f1f482.

zeAC, a New Type of Air Conditioner that Uses Zero Electricity to Cool Rooms, Is Raising Funds Via Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign

19 Jun

 The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort throughout through the day and night

By Robert Hoskins, Crowdfunding PR

Lanham, Maryland – The patent-pending Zero Electric Air-conditioned (zeAC) plans to raise $250,000 through its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign to finance the project, which has the potential to revolutionize the conventional and established concepts of air-conditioning that require large amounts of electricity and leave a dirty carbon footprint. The zeAC units are a great way to cool rooms in both homes and offices while reducing the amount of air pollution being produced by coal power plants that are causing the earth’s temperature to rise.

The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort, throughout through the day and night

The zeAC is simple, user-friendly and easy to operate and only requires refilling the tank with water every morning, which the system utilizes to create a micro-climate of stable humidity and comfort, throughout through the day and night

“We have researched and created a green air conditioning solution that can cool rooms without using electricity,” said Anaele Iroh, zeAC’s inventor. “The device works by absorbing vapor from the air and brings down temperature by absorption of heat. Please visit our zeAC crowdfunding campaign that is currently live on Indiegogo and buy one or more units for your home or office!”

The simple and user-friendly zeAC is easy to operate. It involves refilling the tank with water every morning. The system helps create a micro-climate of stable humidity and cool comfort, right through the day and night. The unique zeAC is ideal for use in rooms measuring 100 square feet or for larger rooms, just deploy more zeAC units.

The main component is a cylinder with micro-porous surfaces that can help control the climate. Water evaporates from these surfaces and helps cool down the air inside the room. The added benefit is that the zeAC’s plants absorb harmful CO2 in the room and release fresh oxygen, thus making the atmosphere inside the room healthy and enjoyable.

According to the team associated with developing this unique air conditioner, during the testing process of zeAC, the device cooled down room temperatures to around 27 degrees Celsius even as the temperature outside was around 35 degrees Celsius. With zeAC, users will enjoy a constantly controlled room air temperature, humidity levels, increased oxygen, reduced CO2 and reduced temperature swings reducing thermal discomfort.

The device also has a heating element that can add heat on cooler days in small amounts to ensure that the air conditioner’ main cylinder always maintains a temperature of 36 degrees. This helps bring room temperature to a steady 24 degrees. In tests conducted in winter climate of -1 degree Celsius, the humidity was around 65 per cent according to the developers of zeAC.

The zeAC can be used with a large variety of plants including Peace Lily, Money Plant, Bamboo Palm and Mother-in-law’s tongue. It also works well with popular trees like Peepal Tree, Rama Tulsi, Christmas Cactus, Aloe Vera, Snake Plant, Neem Tree, and Areca Palm.

According to the team of developers of the project, zeAC is 100 times more energy efficient, healthy and sustainable than conventional air conditioners. It can be used as an alternative to regular AC units and can be easily integrated with the décor and interiors of any room due to its small size and sleek appearance. The unit can enhance the appearance of any home or office when placed in a flower put accompanied by attractive and colorful flowers.

Front Page PR’s team of marketing experts can help growing companies write press releases, develop online press rooms, build social media networks, plan a digital advertising program, write search engine optimized blog pages for content marketing, generate precise databases of vertical B2B media contacts, write effective media pitches, build media relationships with the management team, find trade show panels discussion for subject matter experts to speak at and harvest email addresses for carefully-tailored email marketing programs. An excellent price for a full portfolio marketing services that is hard to beat and represents one of the most cost-effective deals in the B2B marketing industry.

“One of the most challenging decisions that most small companies face is hiring their first marketing consulting firm,” said Robert Hoskins, Front Page PR’s Director of PR and Media Relations. “Regardless of whether it’s a small startup seeking to gain market traction, a small business that wants to expand their existing business operations or a large corporation that is seeking merger and acquisition partners, our team of seasoned media relations experts can help any business move mountains with words and sway public persuasion with positive trade publication and business media interviews.”

“The average rate that most PR firms charge clients is $10,000 to $20,000 per month or $60,000 to $240,000 per year. The metric or question that all firms need to measure when evaluating their PR/media relations budget is, ‘Is my PR firm capable of generating at least $1 of media publicity for every $1 I spend on their PR consulting fees?’ ” Hoskins continued. “With that said, if a company can find a PR firm that can generate a 300% return-on-investment (ROI) for a budget of $60,000 per year, that’s equivalent to hiring three professional, seasoned marketing professionals, and/or receiving a minimum of $300,000 in positive, credible media exposure. Not many firms can deliver on this expectation, but our team can.”

The two-piece design features a unique comforter that lies on top of a fitted-sheet and zips into place on top, rather than on the edges – freeing the quilt to spread out or wrap snugly around you without restriction.

So, regardless if you sleep on your stomach, back, or side, the Zenbivy Bed lets you move naturally and effortlessly for a better sleep experience during your adventures – from under the stars in the backcountry to car camping and family road trips.

Appropriately enough, “Pacific Northwest” is the name of a new Portland, OR and Vancouver, BC, based company which has announced a Kickstarter campaign to bring their first original product to market – the Sea to Sky Pack, the first waterproof backpack that fits in your pocket.

Daypack Kickstarter Crowdfund Campaign Offers Tough, lightweight, 100% waterproof 24-liter pack compresses smaller than a soda can for storage

Kickstarter Crowdfunding Campaign Offers Sea to Sky Pack, a Tough, lightweight, 100% waterproof, 24-liter backpack compresses smaller than a soda can for storage

XChime “Smart” Video Doorbell Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Allows Homeowners to See Who’s at the Front and Garage Doors via Smartphone App

7 Jun

Affordability combined with new video doorbell features such as garage door opener and add-on smart light bulb extend safety to front and garage doors

By Robert Hoskins

Chicago, Illinois – Home security and automation just got a bit smarter with the launch of Xchime’s Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. With video doorbells being a key part of any home safety setup, Xchime aims to broaden the usefulness by adding convenience and security features such as a garage door opener and smart light bulb integration. Soon after it’s launch, Xchime has exceeded its goal by 200% having raised $45,526 from 431 backers and is already 100% funded with first units expected to ship quickly by August 2017.

XChime Smart Video Doorbell Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Allows Homeowners to See Who's at the Front Door via Smartphone App

XChime Smart Video Doorbell Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign Allows Homeowners to See Who’s at the Front Door or Garage Door from Anywhere via a Smartphone App

Expand Beyond the Front Door

Garages are one of the entry points for criminals, typically when home owners forget to (completely) close the garage door. With an additional Xchime unit set up in the garage, instantly view the status of your garage door from your mobile device. Open or close it with one touch from our mobile app, using the optional garage door opener kit add-on accessory. Light is also a major deterrent to would-be thieves. Integrate your smart light bulbs with Xchime to remotely turn on or off exterior lights.

Say Goodbye to Lag

Lag time is a common complaint with other video doorbells. Anyone who’s used one knows the frustration of having a 7 or 8 second delay from when someone pushes the doorbell to when you can see and hear what’s going on. Xchime’s crack team of engineers worked hard to significantly reduce lag time, getting it closer to real-time.

Fits Any Budget

Leading video doorbells range from $199 to $249. Early backers of Xchime can get units for only $129 each, making the Xchime a perfect fit for any home budget.

Xchime features also include:

  • HD video (1080p)
  • Two-way audio
  • Video live-view and communication
  • Latency (lag)-free streaming
  • Night vision

The Xchime Story

The company boasts experienced engineers with backgrounds from Motorola and Qualcomm, along with seed funding from Ufrate and other angel investors to the tune of $420,000. “To fit in each doorframe, Xchime uses the standard rectangular shape design similar to other doorbells on the market, but what makes it stand out from competitors is what’s on the inside,” says CEO Gary Bi. “Our team used our experience in Real-Time Communications to reduce the lag that other video doorbells have, fulfilling the promise of almost instant views of who’s at your door. And why stop there? Home security is about the entire perimeter, not just the front door. Our add-ons mean you can secure your garage and control lights through Xchime for more peace of mind.”

Cirkul Extends Successful Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign for Its New Patented Water Bottle, Which Has Surpassed $130,000

2 Jun

More than 2,700 Contributors have helped raise 656% of the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign’s goal of raising $20,000 to fund the Cirkul bottle, which allows drinkers to personalize their beverage with interchangeable flavor cartridges to

Tampa Florida Cirkul, Inc., developer of transformational hydration products that reimagine how flavored beverages are created, personalized and enjoyed at home and on the go, announced the extension of its hugely successful campaign for the Cirkul water bottle, which allows consumers to customize their flavored water with Cirkul Sip flavored cartridges.

Cirkul Extends Successful Indiegogo Campaign for its New Patented Water Bottle - Surpasses $130,000

Cirkul Extends Successful Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign for Patented Water Bottle with Flavored Cirkul Sips-Surpasses $130,000-to Reduce 250 Billion Water Bottles that Are Discarded Each Year

Founded by former Dartmouth College athletes, Cirkul utilizes single-use flavor cartridges—Cirkul Sips—to bring flavor to water. Once the cartridge is inserted into the top of the Cirkul bottle, water flows from the tilted bottle through the Cirkul Sip, delivering delicious flavor to the user. A one-way valve prevents any flavor from entering the bottle itself—keeping the bottle clean and residue-free. This feature allows the user to change flavor levels at will, from plain to fully flavored water, dialing in their exact flavor sip by sip.

More than 250 billion water bottles are discarded each year around the world, resulting in massive carbon footprints. Cirkul reduces shipment volumes by 99.6% and provides multiple beverage options for users on the go with compact, portable Cirkul Sip cartridges and one Cirkul bottle—saving trips to the grocery store and pantry space. One Cirkul Sip is the equivalent of four 20oz bottles—depending on the flavor intensity setting— and can be swapped out at any time for another flavor or turned off if the user prefers plain water.

“Through our personal experiences as college athletes, we realized the way people consume water was in need of an update,” said Garrett Waggoner, co-founder of Cirkul. “We really wanted to provide a unique experience that allows people to customize their beverages with ease while on the go.”

Features and benefits of Cirkul include: flavor cartridges that insert easily into the top of the bottle allowing users to switch out for a new flavor at any time; a one-way valve that ensures flavor only leaves the cartridge when the user drinks from the bottle; and a dial-in flavor preference that lets users select flavor intensity and change at any time from plain to fully flavored water. The Cirkul bottle offers multiple flavor categories containing vitamins, electrolytes or caffeine, is eco-friendly, BPA-free, leak proof and dishwasher safe. Cirkul is perfect for travel and a healthy option for kids.

The Cirkul LifeSip formula contains vitamins and provides enhanced flavor. It is available in Fruit Punch, Raspberry Lemonade, Coconut Pineapple, and Sweet Tea & Lemon. The Cirkul FitSip formula contains essential electrolytes to replenish those lost during an active lifestyle. It is available in Orange Tangerine and Mixed Berry. The Cirkul GoSip formula contains healthy energy (caffeine, ginseng, taurine) and gives users that extra push during the day. It is available in Black Cherry and Strawberry Watermelon. Stevia and unsweetened options are also available.

Founded in 2016 and based in Tampa, Florida, Cirkul is the brainchild of two recent Dartmouth College graduates who came up with the idea while playing football. The company plans to roll out additional technological enhancements for the personal beverage industry. For more information, visit the company’s website at www.DrinkCirkul.com.
