If you're thinking about doing a crowdfunding project, read this post!

We just finished our first campaign (http://kck.st/1lA6YZb) ~350% over the ask.  We had two more scheduled (end of 2013 and early 2014), but decided to place them on hold because we were learning so much from the first one. This campaign launched in November 2013 and was hit by several calamities (out of my control) so we decided to cancel it. I could not be happier about the relaunch. 

Don't be afraid to fail. You can always get back up and hit it out of the park.

Congrats on your success and a very cool product idea. The article could also be a warning to potential backers to do their homework before throwing money at something.

The first quarter of 2014 has experienced the largest number of IPOs in the past decade, compared to first quarter data from previous years. With the JOBS Act in place and an improved economy, the accelerated pace is not expected to slow down.
