Zivix set out for a minimum of $50k which occured merely four hours after launching in late March on a 42 day campaign term.
The funds are for Jamstik+, a MIDI portable guitar that teaches people how to play music and connects wirelessly to mobile devices to use anywhere. Zivix has raised over $8m-$10m to date, from previous crowdfunding success, angel investors and series A capital ($5m).
As part if this campaign Zivix is also donating over 180 Jamstik+ products to music schools and therapy nonprofits. This is the second largest Minnesota tech crowdfunding campaign to date, behind that of SmartThings $1.2m in Sept. 2012.
