First featured in Crowdfund Insider’s Crowdfunding Mailbox in September 2013, Kapture recorded a successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $162,386, exceeding the $150,000 goal with over 1,200 backers in just 30 days. Kapture then raised over $1,000,000 raised in its seed round of fundraising to develop and launch production with partners in China. The tech startup has filed 6 patents to protect its product/design and has completed its manufacturing qualification and related certifications. In April 2015, Kapture received its first production inventory and began shipping our product to market.
“Kapture is ready for a big market debut. We are shipping our Kickstarter and Pre-orders volume along with an inventory build for future orders,” shared the startup on its private fundraise on Fundable. “But that’s just the beginning of the Kapture vision: from connecting to your favorite productivity apps, like Evernote, to integrating with the latest and greatest wearable devices, including Apple Watch, we have big plans for the future of Kapture and making it easier and more awesome for people everywhere to Kapture the important moments they just heard.”
Kapture seeks to provide a platform to save, edit, and share meaningful sound bytes just after users hear them. Combining the power of wearable technology with a simple app interface, Kapture aims to deliver an “entirely new consumer benefit space centered around these audio moments.”
According to the campaign, the Kapture wristband and app hopes to provide the tools needed to create and relive memorable audio moments:
Listen: Kapture uses patent-pending “memory buffer” technology to store the last 60 seconds of audio it “hears.” Once audio hits its 60-second “expiration date,” it’s automatically wiped from Kapture’s memory.
Save: Anytime users hear something they want to save, double-tap the wristband to grab that previous 60 seconds of audio and send it to the smartphone Kapture app or other mobile device.
Share: Once the audio clip is on the app, users can edit it or enhance it — just like a photo or a video — and then share it through social sites or keep in a private archive.
The Kapture team includes CEO & Co-Founder Mike Sarrow, COO & Co-Founder Matthew Dooley, Technical Operation Keith Porter, Board Member from Cincytech Mike Venerable, and Advisors Sonny Jandial and David Bill.
