Review: Crowdfunding for Rural Spark not the success we hoped for

As most of you know, Rural Spark joined Indiegogo last spring to raise money through crowdfunding. Although we put in a lot of effort, it proved difficult to reach significant numbers of the target audience required to reach our goals. We realised the only way to reach our crowdfunding goal was to go viral in social media, preferably in the US. Although it is picked up by several media, it’s hard to reach a tipping point where you really go viral. Even so, we managed to raise a total of $6,536,- which will definitely help us in developing our products; we used the money especially for further optimisation of the Rural Spark Cube. In addition to the money, we also attracted a lot of attention in the media.

We would like to thank everybody who supported us. The perks you selected are on the way or you may have received them already!
