Hi everyone! Tomas here. Rosta, George, and I recently returned from Shenzhen, and I just wanted to give you all a quick update on what we’ve been up to!
Tons of exciting things have been happening. First of all, the successful campaign significantly increased interest in our product and our cause. This attracted a number of really talented people, from exceptional developers to humans dedicated to expanding and interacting with our growing community. Our tempo is faster than ever, but some decisions must not be rushed. One such decision is selecting the right manufacturing partner. It’s a partnership which you hope lasts a lifetime, and choosing wisely is our top priority. After interviewing almost 150 manufacturers and meeting tens of them personally in China, we are very close to understanding all the little details that will matter most on our path to make an excellent product.
Helping us make this critical decision is HWTrek (pictured above), a company which knows the local environment inside and out and is helping us navigate the process of finding the perfect partner. They have been immensely helpful and understanding, and I would like to publicly thank them. Two months after Kickstarter, we are one big step closer.
Before I sign off, I just wanted to remind everyone about the referral contest we’re having on our Indiegogo page (see the blog posts below if you need a refresher on the details). Word of mouth is what drives this project, so it’s a great way to help us reach new people. It’s also a great way for you to win free security tags, and even free Angee units!
That’s all for now. I’ll check in again soon. Hope you’re all having a great start to 2016!
