What's happening with Semafores.
Almost two years ago the Semafores team took a hard look at crowdfunding. We looked at the options for crowdfunding platforms and at the time and effort we would have to spend on the crowdfunding campaign to make it a success. We also considered the likely results. It was clear that it would take considerable effort to organize and run any crowdfunding campaign. It also looked like we were unlikely to raise more than a few thousand dollars. That didn’t seem like nearly enough payoff for the work we would have to put into it, given that eventually we will need much more than a few thousand dollars of funding to make Semafores a success. We put the idea of crowdfunding on the shelf and moved on to other work that we hoped would move us closer to our goal of getting Curi™ into the hands of family caregivers who need it.
Recently we’ve given crowdfunding another look. This time we’ve decided we need to go ahead and launch a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. These are the reasons why…
If you are reading this, you have probably noticed the new look of our website. Over the last few months it had become increasingly obvious that the old version of the site wasn’t working for us and it was time for an overhaul. The process is ongoing, but the first stage is ready and you can see the results now.
The Semafores team would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas. Our hope for you is for a safe and happy holiday in the company of friends and loved ones, and for a day of joy, peace, and ease. Our sorrow is that we know that our wish will not come true for everyone.
