Full steam ahead!
Hey Core Crew,
This being our first Kickstarter, we are still learning. We have been communicating mostly through BackerKit, and using MailChimp to send out updates from emails collected through the “Keep Up With Bringrr” subscription list on our website (at the very bottom of the main page). I’m going to make sure that we post more frequent updates on here, and keep everyone in the loop!
We will begin manufacturing our first batch of test devices starting in early May. After we conduct various tests with the devices and make sure the quality is up to standards we can expect to have everything manufactured by June. Delivery and shipping is still expected to be on time at the moment (July) and we will hopefully have a better idea/timeline for this within the next few weeks.
App & Software
We now have a preview link on our website to give everyone an idea of the design and interface of the Bringrr App: http://bringrr.com/app/preview.html
Website, Blog, & Social Media
Our website has undergone a facelift and we’ve created the new Bringrr Blog at http://bringrr.tumblr.com. We have a bunch of stuff on there already and we’ll be adding more content, news and updates.
If you haven't filled out your Kickstarter survey yet, please do so on bringrr.backerkit.com :)
We just recently opened up the Bringrr headquarters at the South Station WeWork workspace in Boston (https://www.wework.com). WeWork is an incredible collaborative space that has been a great way for the Bringrr Team to gather, share ideas, and innovate.
There’s a ton of events coming up in the near future, here’s a few that the Bringrr Team and myself will be attending and taking part in.
I will be presenting at the UMASS Lowell DifferenceMaker Idea Challenge on April 15th. (https://www.uml.edu/Innovation-Entrepreneurship/DifferenceMaker/default.aspx).
TEDxLowell is an independently organized TED event that I will be discussing all things tech in and around the Internet of Things trend on April 27th. (http://www.tedxlowell.com/about)
A few members of the Bringrr Team along with myself will be traveling to China to check out Poly-Products Industries HQ and their factories. We will most likely be going there in early May to get our hands on the test samples right after they are manufactured so we can take a bunch of videos and pictures of the finished devices in action for you guys!
Until next time,
Aldo & the Bringrr Team
