What is Kickstarter?
The Kickstarter website is an online platform that allows people to pitch their product to a wider audience. Members of the public can choose to back a project by pledging to buy the product in advance. The creators (that means us) must set a funding goal to achieve by a certain deadline (for example 30 days). If the goal is not reached in time, the backers will not be charged and the project will not proceed.
It’s a new and exciting way to launch a product that we hope you can be a part of as you follow us on our journey! To find out more about Kickstarter and how it works, you can read about it here.
why are we doing it?
Kickstarter is a great platform for launching a product, with a strong, supportive community and global reach.
It also enables one very important thing. By pledging to buy our product before production, we can use your money to place the order for the components we require. These components have a minimum order quantity required for us to get the right prices, so it’s key that we reach the numbers we need. By supporting our project and sharing it with your friends, we can finally get our lamp into production and from there - the world is our oyster.
a note on pricing
We’ll be offering a limited number of lamps at a discount of up to 50% off RRP at launch. We’re hoping you (our community, and friends) will buy through the page in order to get the best prices and help us build momentum. To find out more about that and be the first to know about special launch prices and times, sign up to our newsletter below.
