Is it okay to back the crowdfunding project? Well, if you do not mind backing a campaign where the company has no prior crowdfunding project to gauge performance, the choice narrows down to one’s preferences and risk-taking willingness.
But just because a company is just crowdfunding for the first time doesn’t mean it cannot deliver. The team has taken part in multiple prestigious accelerator programs run by institutions like UCL Innovation & Enterprise, Digital Catapult, NVIDIA, and Entrepreneur First.
The early bird price is still available on Indiegogo at £600.00 GBP, which’s 20% off the £750.00 GBP retail price.
About the team
The team is comprised of photographers, content creators, and engineers set to make content creation as easy as it can get. Due to the lack of usability of digital cameras for content creation and slow innovation into meeting content creators’ needs, the team came up with the idea that meets all these needs, Alice Camera. The team won a grant of £175,000 from the UK’s Government Innovation Agency, Innovate UK, giving them substantial funding to continue developing the Alice Camera.
