Kapture – A Successful Cincinnati Campaign

Crowdfunding through Kickstarter was the best way for us to find out whether our product could succeed in the market. The money was one thing, but the feedback we received throughout our campaign from real customers is what really propelled us forward. To surpass our $150K goal in just 30 days, we had to raise a lot of awareness for a product that people couldn’t experience. Thanks to the rallying support from Cincinnati’s burgeoning startup ecosystem, we were able to cross the finish line. Having the added support of QCC would have definitely made our efforts even more fruitful and much less from-scratch. After all, it’s the local audience that you can really count on.
