Week 2 is a Wrap! + Contest

Posted by Ben Forman (Creator)

All we can say is "WOW!" The interest we've received about the ZBoard has been UNBELIEVABLY AMAZING. We've broken through $100k and are now sitting at $114k with 26 days to go! Thanks to everyone who's gotten the word out and helped make all the craziness happen!

The peak of the craziness may actually be ahead of us of us though...

We are heading out to Austin for SXSW tomorrow and have been invited by Startup America to make a 60 second ZBoard pitch their "Celebration of America's Startups"  on Friday night. If you're in town for the show, come by and and say hi!

We're hoping that being at SXSW will give our Kickstarter project another "boost," like the Yahoo News segment did. But, we have no idea how big that boost will be. Maybe you can help us guess?


As of the time of this posting, we are at $114,147.  The object of this contest is to guess what amount we will be at by Midnight (Pacific Standard Time) on Tuesday, March 13th. Entries must be submitted by Midnight (Pacific Standard Time) on Thursday, March 8th.

Lets see your guesses in the comments below, and whoever gets closest will receive a free ZBoard shirt and sticker in the mail! 

Good Luck!
