Life After Crowdfunding

Submitted Jan 14, 2016

An inside story on the challenges of building a hardware product on crowdfunding budget. What you can plan ahead and how to manage that which you didn’t see coming!


Crowdfunding is the new hope for closet innovators. But it is hardly the happily-ever-after. The real test begins after you’ve raised the money, which, if you’re making hardware, will probably not keep things warm for long. What are the things you are likely to miss factoring in if you’re a first timer? How do you transition from tinkering to making a product, when the wallets are thin?

Mani & Mayukhini, the founders of Greenopia will share the inside story of what they learnt and what you could do better!
