Kickstarting my Kickboard: Support the Ray-Board Kickstarter Campaign

Launching a product is expensive. You need to make prototypes, find a factory to work with, purchase tooling, build inventory, have it shipped to a warehouse, and pay for fulfilment. Most of that requires advance payment…. so it’s a big risk. To minimize some of that risk I’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to gain support, awareness, and provide early adopters with the best kickboard available. We are raising money to pay for tooling and order the MOQ (minimum order quantity) by taking advance orders. Our goal is to raise $7550. Visit Kickstarter to learn more. All donations will receive a Ray-Board sticker and get to vote on the next color we order. Or you can place an advance order for Ray-Board.  Thank you!
