SpinDance has always been a firm believer in collaboration of technology, knowledge and resources. After all, what is IoT if not the manifestation of collaboration? (That’s a mouthful.) So it should come as no surprise to learn that SpinDance is an active participant in funding start-ups through collaborative platforms, including the mother of them all: Kickstarter.
Since its launch in 2009, Kickstarter has attracted nearly $3 billion in funding from 12 million people, with nearly 120,000 projects successfully funded.
We’re on both the giving and receiving side of the start-up equation; several Kickstarter projects have engaged SpinDance to assist with IoT technology development. You might say that good karma comes when you practice what you preach.
It’s exciting and rewarding to be able to lend our skillset to these projects, and we intend to keep the pipeline flowing. Here are a few of the projects we’ve backed over the last few months.
- Solowheel Iota – A Mini Personal E-Vehicle: A very small, self-balancing personal electric vehicle from the creators of the original hoverboard.
- Growler Chill: a smart countertap for growlers. Designed for the home, it preserves freshness, purges oxygen and keeps your delicious craft beer cold.
- Memo Box Mini – The Smallest Smart Pillbox: Expertly managing meds with a mobile app using a Bluetooth-connected smart pillbox.
