This is Crowdsourcing Mornings! This post takes place every weekday morning and highlights one crowdsourcing project I liked from Kickstarter, Indiegogo, or other crowdsourcing websites.
Please read our crowdsourcing guidelines at: https://geekalabama.com/media-kit-pr/geek-alabama-crowdsourcing-guidelines/
Traditional travel tripods have a critical flaw: tons of wasted space. The result is a tool that is inherently difficult to carry with you into the field. We fixed that, and more. We spent 4 years redesigning the tripod from the ground up to eliminate dead space and minimize packed-down size. But we didn’t stop at space savings.
We made a tool that deploys and packs down rapidly—nearly twice as fast as a traditional tripod. We made it intuitive and delightful to use. We engineered professional-quality stability and performance. And we added thoughtful features to help you get the shot— with any gear, in any environment, from any point of view. We built the Travel Tripod around the photographer’s workflow. How? We are photographers.
We launch our products on Kickstarter because it gives us the freedom to run our business exactly how we want. The funds we generate on Kickstarter make it possible for us to continue developing products without seeking venture capital. That means we’re not beholden to growth goals, revenue targets, or product timelines imposed by other people. Instead, we focus on doing what we love: building the best things we can possibly make, fueled by support from the best customers we could possibly ask for.
As of May 24th, this project has raised $4.5 million of their $500,000 goal. This project has 55 days left to raise as much as it can. For a pledge of $289, you will get one Aluminum Travel Tripod. For a pledge of $479, you will get one Carbon Travel Tripod. To learn more and to pledge money, go to: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/peak-design/travel-tripod-by-peak-design?
