I have a unique product that I want to launch on Indiegogo (or maybe Kickstarter). I developed it myself, went through several trials and iterations and finally reached the end but I simply have no money left to bring this to market. Unfortunately for me I do not have much of a social media presence but I do have a killer product with a unique target.
It is called the Powerbook. You can see early prototypes at www.powerbookco.com
It is a solar powered phone charger but in the form of a book. From the outside it looks like any ordinary glossy hardcover book but open it up and the surprise is a solar panel with a slot on the side to plug your phone. Charging times are equivalent to any other 5 watt solar panel (approx 3 hrs for an iPhone 6). Comes with auto-retry technology so even after clouds pass by it still keeps charging and lots of other features. Can be used to charge anything that can be charged with a usb outlet.
My target are people who need to charge their phones away from homes (campers, hikers, tailgaters etc) and people who simply like reading and love books. I also think it is a great way to teach students about solar energy. Of course the outside can be of any cover style so this powerbook can be customized to anyone's needs. i.e. I can place logos, designs, artwork of any type on the cover. Which means it can be customized for any person, school, or company. It will come in several binding styles: spiral bound, coil bound etc.
So what I need is someone who can help me promote and recruit backers for my campaign that I want to launch in about three weeks. I know it is short notice but all I am looking to raise is about $4,000 - $5,000 which is basically the cost for making a mold for the outside, printing my circuit boards and packaging boxes. So much development has been done already that this is very low risk.
Because I am out of funds, I am primarily looking for someone who will agree to a contingency arrangement. If I meet my goal, you get a % share of the proceeds that we will decide upfront. Obviously if we are able to raise a lot more than $5,000, you will receive a higher percentage just as long I have enough to make sure backers get their product. I have listed $1,000 but very negotiable. Just explain why or suggest another arrangement that may work.
That's about it. So again, I do not have a social media presence or any followers whatsoever but I have what I think is a killer patent pending product as well as a drive to bring this to market. Looking for someone with the know how to help me bring it to market. Please ask as many questions as you need to.
