If you haven’t heard about the Elevation Dock, listen up. It’s the fastest funded project in KickStarter history, has been endorsed by a ton of industry heavyweights, and was locally designed by our partner Casey Hopkins right here in Portland, Oregon.
At the time of this article, the Elevation Dock has raised $875,756. The project has four days to go. Based on our experience with KickStarter, there should be a fairly nice uptick in pledges during the last few days. The project has a serious fighting chance to beat the record and become the highest funded project in KickStarter history.
Help him get there! Spread the word. Share the project with your friends, your family, your enemies. There are new distributor options that may potentially be very profitable for some folks that you know.
Remember, there are only four days left to pledge and order a dock for yourself. Once the project ends on KickStarter, there will be no way to get your hands on a dock for quite some time. Get in there and help us break the record!
“It’s been a pretty wild ride. I pitched the dock to a famous Apple accessory company and they flatly turned it down. Many others said it was a bad idea. It’s reassuring to know you aren’t crazy all of the time. I’m sure if Johnny Ive had pitched fully machined aluminum unibody laptops to Michael Dell, he would have been laughed out of the room as well.”
-Casey Hopkins (founder and inventor of the Elevation Dock)
