We’ve made the decision to lower the initial minimum budget from $48k USD to only $6k. This means that we only need a handful more backers to start production! We’ve made this decision after discussing the numbers with Crowd Supply HQ, and they confirmed that a reduction in the funding goal was feasible. This is partially possible because of outside support.
The response to this campaign so far has verified that people are interested in HestiaPi as a product - which is the key ingredient to convincing manufacturers that the product is worth the time. So, thank you for all your support! We couldn’t have done this without you.
It goes without saying that if any backers do not feel comfortable with this change, they can cancel their order before the end of the campaign and they will not be charged a thing. We are making this change in good faith to benefit everyone involved.
Along with the reduced funding goal, we’re adjusting our manufacturing to a smaller batch schedule. This means that we can deliver products sooner than originally expected. The first 150 orders will be shipped in September 2019! How cool is that?
