AirDog funding by Kickstarter, a Success
Businesses, companies, startups, the lone entrepreneur, they’ve all got a few things in common. They use risk (at times) as motivation, they’re up for challenges (which come aplenty) and they’re usually always backed by some type of support. Whether it’s other businesses, friends and family or Kickstarter backers. And sure, as a Kickstarter backer, you’ve got incentive and that’s part of the deal. But here’s something we want to say, and we mean it. Thanks. Thanks for being a part of this community and for sharing the same love for adventure sports. You’re a vital and essential part to everything we’ve done so far and everything that we’re going to do in the future.
Stories. It’s something that’s always been a part of humanity. And it’s something more central to our live’s than we may think it is. You’ve got one, we’ve got one and it’s rad when they intertwine. And AirDog helps mold and amplify your story, and that excites us.
After we had a pretty solid idea of the direction AirDog was taking us, we knew we couldn't do it alone and we didn't want to do it alone. That's a pretty cool thing Kickstarter was able to do in our case. Connect others from all over the world that have a passion in Adventure Sports and build towards something that didn't exist before. And what a ride its been. From a successful campaign to our first week of shipping to our beta testers, its been wild. Yes, there have been setbacks from which we’ve learned from and we can look back and be thankful for these lessons.
Due to the Kickstarter success, we garnered a bit of attention. We were featured on Bloomberg, BBC, The Verge, and more, here’s a short overview of the global coverage AirDog has received, which has led to more people joining us on this venture.
