A group of over 200 crowdfunders gathered on 15 Jan eager to hear from the past experiences of crowdfunding pioneers – Johnathan Leow (PROTAG), Titan Lee (Pirate3D) and G-Jay Yong (OAXIS).  The 3 panelists shared their personal experiences & tips from their successful Kickstarter projects.

The organizer Kenneth Lou from Novelsys commented that they were very excited with the launch of Ampere (an intelligent wireless charging sleeve) and that they will be closely monitoring their campaign to ensure the smooth production and delivery of the product. They have already reached their goal of USD 60,000 and will be embarking on production (UPDATE: Novelsys has raised over $87,000 from their kickstarter project)

As a whole, the event was well-received.

“It is definitely useful in term of awareness of how to get a successful crowdfunding executed with the results that you want and hearing from live examples really help especially these days everything is about crowd activating” Jerrel Phua, an event participant commented.

Despite the good response, there were concerns expressed by some of the participants. One key concern of using Kickstarter is that there are no guarantee of refunds if the campaign target is not reached.

All in all, #EpicCrowdfunding had a good turnout. It is testimony that many are keeping their eyes peeled for the crowdfunding scene to take off in Asia.
