[Tech Talk Tuesdays] From Sketchpad to Launch: A Kickstarter Primer by Levit8


1 Mar, Tuesday
730PM - 900PM

Next up, TECH TALK TUESDAYS is proud to have Letitia and Justine from NUS Industrial Design to share with us on the product development process behind Levit8, a flat folding portable standing desk that successfully launched on Kickstarter and raised $58,462 with 1,191 backers.

Join us for their presentation titled "From Sketchpad To Launch: A Kickstarter Primer by Levit8", where they will be sharing with us the creative process of coming up with a product that people would resonate with, starting from initial failed product concepts to the inspiration and product iterations behind Levit8. They would also be sharing with us their Kickstarter 'hustles' - how they reached full funding within two days and surpassed all expectations.
