Indiegogo, the world’s largest online funding platform, announces the Australia-based Flow Hive campaign has set a new record for the most funds ever raised on the platform — $5.2 million (https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/flow-hive-honey-on-tap-directly-from-your-beehive). Flow Hive also set a record for the most funds raised in a 24 hour period with $2.18 million.
Flow Hive achieved its funding goal in a staggering 477 seconds and has received more than 12,000 contributions.
Launched by a father and son team, Flow Hive is raising money to produce their revolutionary beekeeping system that makes harvesting honey as easy as turning a tap. Over the course of the last 10 years, Cedar and Stewart Anderson developed their Flow™ design in an effort to make harvesting honey easier. The duo are leveraging Indiegogo’s global reach to bring their technology directly to potential customers around the world.
The previous Indiegogo record for funds raised was held by Code.org’s Hour of Code campaign. Flow Hive is the 10th multimillion dollar Indiegogo campaign over the past year – spanning a wide variety of categories including nonprofit, film, small business, tech innovation and the environment:
