Massachusetts-based startup Mobile Pixels achieved unprecedented crowdfunding success, securing over $8 million for the innovative DUEX Float portable monitor through a strategically executed Kickstarter campaign, showcasing the company’s commitment to innovative technology in portable monitors.
Led by Founder and CEO Jack Yao, the company’s groundbreaking product, DUEX Float, exceeded expectations by amassing a staggering $480,000 in backing.
Mobile Pixels embarked on its crowdfunding journey in June 2018 with the launch of DUO, an innovative, lightweight, portable laptop monitor. The campaign quickly achieved viral status, securing over $1 million in funding from the Kickstarter campaign and Indiegogo. This success began Mobile Pixels’ remarkable trajectory in the portable monitor landscape.
“I think crowdfunding is still a great way to see if your product has traction in the market, generate buzz before an official launch, and secure cash needed to produce inventory,” said Jack Yao, Founder and CEO of Mobile Pixels.
Since DUO’s successful debut, the startup has consistently raised the bar with six additional Kickstarter campaigns, introducing products such as TRIO, DUEX Plus & DUEX Lite, DUEX Max, Geminos, Trio & Trio Max, and the latest achievement, DUEX Float. With each campaign, the company has redefined the concept of flexible and efficient workspaces.
To navigate the challenges of crowdfunding, Mobile Pixels enlisted the expertise of Enventys Partners, the industry’s only full-service, turnkey product launch agency. The collaboration between the two entities has proven successful, with Enventys Partners providing start-to-finish product development services and digital marketing expertise.
The key to the lightweight-monitor startup success lies in its passionate and engaged community of backers who share the company’s vision for adaptable workspaces. The supporters’ dedication and commitment to innovation have allowed the company to deliver exceptional products consistently.
Mobile Pixels Inc., comprised of manufacturing engineers and computer scientists, prioritizes productivity. The company’s lightweight, portable laptop monitors, like its new Duex float, enable users to work efficiently while on the move. Backed by prestigious institutions like MIT and Northeastern, Mobile Pixels aims to allow users to swivel the screen freely and adjust the angle according to their preferences.
“For us, the most important piece is to work directly with the backers on understanding what features or shortcomings our current design has that are lacking. It’s a chance to enhance the product before launching it officially in the market,” said Jack Yao.
The recent $8 million in funding will enable Mobile Pixels to continue the development of DUEX Float and further solidify its position as a pioneer in portable monitor solutions. The company’s commitment to innovation, coupled with the support of its dedicated community, ensures a promising future for Mobile Pixels Inc.
