Pebble - a watch that syncs with your smart phone went on Kickstarter to raise $100,000 in seed capital. They ended up raising $10M. Not sure how I would manage 68,000 investors but the result is startling and a profound shift in the power of many people to effect change in launching companies and sharing the prosperity. The very early stages of the end of the vast wealth disparity in the West. It could be a 100 year journey but it has to start somewhere.
Not only do they have the capital they need, they also just met their first 68,000 customers.
