It’s been a little over one week since we pressed the ‘go’ button for iLumi and wow what a week it’s been. From the indiegogo launch to presentations at Cowboy Stadium and Rice University, the week has been a whirlwind of excitement. First of all, thank you to the 146 iLumi supporters who have already contributed their hard earned cash to support the iLumi indiegogo campaign. We’re inspired by your support and can’t wait to get iLumis in your hands. You should know that even if we don’t reach the $100,000 goal, your support has already allowed us to move forward with manufacturing to bring iLumi to the world. We are committed to iLumi and committed to giving our supporters an easy, beautiful, and amazing lighting experience. Reaching the goal will mean a lower indiegogo fee, so it is still important, but not reaching it won’t stop us.
Secondly, the iLumi team recently presented at two amazing events, the Startup Texas two minute pitch at Cowboy Stadium and the Rice Alliance IT and Web Showcase. It was a jam packed three days, and at the end we came out with a trophy, lots of amazing contacts, and some amazing experiences. Check out the iLumi facebook page for some photos of these events including us presenting on the biggest HD screen in the world at Cowboy Stadium.
Lastly, if you haven’t seen it yet, we’ve added some new perks and bonuses to the iLumi indiegogo campaign including a hacker kit, a smaller donation amount, and an iLumi card to give as a ‘pre-gift’ over the Holidays. Again, thanks for your support iLumi Nation and let’s keep growing. Spread the word by posting, tweeting, sharing, and even just plain old talking. Let’s light up the world!
Corey, Swapnil, and the ilumi Team
