Yancey's favourite project :)

We are Kickstarters CEO all-time favourite project!

When Yancey Strickler was recently interviewed for British Airways Business Life Magazine he was asked what has been his favourite ever Kickstarter project. The answer was a transparent loudspeaker by Swedish designers.

"It's very elegant and sounds beautiful... the first thing my wife and I do in the morning is put on music!".

This makes us immensely proud since the Kickstarter platform he co-founded has has successfully funded over 3 billion dollars to 127915 other projects that he could have chosen! Thank you Yancey!

We are down to two weeks left on our Kickstarter campaign so join in un the fun with Yancey before it's to late! Here is the link to Kickstarter.

Our new kickstarter just reached 500 backers! There is still a handfull of the limited "early bird" rewards left, grab them while you can! Check it out over here: http://kck.st/2tlRm36

We are back on Kickstarter!

We're back, and we wanted you to know about it first! Within the last few minutes we kicked off our 3rd Kickstarter. Thanks for all your encouraging word, we did not give up after our last campaign "only" reaching 131k usd of our 250k goal. Instead we went back to the drawing board and created something even better! And now with better planning, we can make it happen with a lower goal of 50k usd.

During our first 24h we will do something really special for all of you who waited. Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/peopleproducts/wireless-transparent-speakers-with-flic-button

Thanks for being a part of our journey!

Dear original backers,

we soon closing our equity crowdfunding campaign over at fundedbyme.com/transparentspeaker

We got around 123k USD pledged so far and would love for you to join us. United States IP addresses ar blocked to this site, but if you are an accredited investor you can join by email our CEO directly: martin@transparentspeaker.com

We also want to mention that On June 20, Kickstarter will be launching something special, and we’ve been invited to participate. We can’t spill the beans about what’s being planned until launch day, but you can look forward to new projects from some of the most inventive independent creators from the platform’s history — so stay tuned!

Best regards,

Martin and the team

Become a part of the family

Hello all backers! Do you want to change the consumer electronics industry? We are now live with our equity crowdfunding and have made a new video:

With equity crowdfunding, you get a financial stake in the company you’re supporting. Due to Swedish corporation laws and since it's not a public offering you need to login in on FundedByMe see financial details. It's free and doesn't not commit you to anything.

Before we launched we had already signed up more investment interest than what we reached with our kickstarter campaign. If all people that backed the speaker here on kickstarter would join in we would reach our goal and be able to manufacture and send out small transparent speakers by the end of the year. The minimun amount is extremely low so this is our chance to keep creative control of Transparent Speaker while getting assistance from a passionate community of normal people.

If you are US citizen you most likely will need to be accredited investor, so please email me, martin@transparentspeaker.com, and I will help to investigate that further. European countries have an more open policy about normal people becoming shareholders.

Additional legal note: Transparent Sound AB or it's US subsidiary People Products Co. are not a broker-dealer, funding portal or investment advisor; and neither the website nor companies participate in the offer or sale of securities.

Apart from the boring legal stuff, this is really exciting and we really hope some of you want to become part of the Transparent Speaker family! Check out FundedByMe.

All the best, Martin 
Co-founder, CEO
