Original Story: After a successful Kickstarter campaign for the PonoMusic Player, PonoMusic recently launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdfunder. While PonoMusic's rewards-based crowdfunding campaign raised over $6.22 million, it's starting to look like investors who want in on PonoMusic are going to help it go even further this time. As of early Monday morning, investment commitments stand at over $5.24 million.
PonoMusic's Crowdfunder campaign is designed to raise money from accredited investors with minimum investments of $5000.
The campaign initially launched August 1 but was not announced publicly until August 13. By that point they'd raised "commitments" of $1.43 million with a stated goal of $2.5 million.
That was Wedneday. Since then they've raised the goal to $4 million as commitments rose. Now investors are committed to over $5.24 in the early hours of Monday morning. With a closing date of September 1, there's plenty of time for this campaign to go a lot further.
Though PonoMusic has not listed any investors at least 874 members of the platform are following PonoMusic's campaign on Crowdfunder.
