Our aim was to raise £4,775 pounds through our first Kickstarter campaign, so we could go through the Hewlett Packard Indigo Media Certification Program. Allowing us enough money to cover the cost of the trial, manufacture enough RFIDsecur™ material to produce the rewards for our backers and for the testing process used in the HP trial. We also need to allow for taxes and fees associated with raising the funds.
We are now over the shock and awe of finishing our first Kickstarter project. Lots of late nights and long days, we put our hearts into this project and we are so glad to say we’ve come out of the other side.
What can I say, we smashed it and raised £6,831 and we are overwhelmed by the support and the pledges made, we are still getting people asking for RFIDsecur™ blocking cards after the deadline. Backers from all over the world, have pledged and put their trust in us.
The Kickstarter project may have finished, but the work is far from over. We have to contact all our backers confirm designs and numbers. Finalising the details, organising the manufacturing of the RFIDsecur™ material and printing of the RFID, NFC blocking cards designs. And then, there are all our new followers on our social media channels, without who, I’m sure this campaign wouldn’t have been successful.
Having completed our first campaign on Kickstarter, lessons have been learned and we now feel we are better prepared for future projects. Already talking about a new project, with new rewards as well as some old ones, watch this space.
