Keyport Launches Their 3.0 Product on Kickstarter at #CES2016

One of the first companies that reached out to us when we started VegasStartups.com was a company called Keyport. They have a nifty keychain solution that would take a massive key chain and turn it into a much more functional, small device. They’re continuing to iterate on their product and have created an entirely modular design that incorporates a lot of the feedback that previous customers have provided.

Keyport’s 3.0 design just landed on Kickstarter and only a few hours in they already have 432 backers and have raised $27,531 of their goal. Check out their Kickstarter video below for more info:

I also love this image which illustrates how multi functional the Keyport has become:

They’re doing a Kickstarter kick off party tonight (1/8) at 8 PM. Short notice (my fault) but everyone in the community is invited. The event is at the Keyport Headquarters and retail store at: 3155 W Tompkins Ave, Las Vegas, NV 89103.

I love seeing Keyport having all this success. If you want to support their efforts, go and back Keyport on Kickstarter.

Keyport Makes ~$135k on Kickstarter

Fellow Las Vegas startup company, Keyport, is in the last 9 days of their Kickstarter project for the Keyport Slide 2.0. They’ve just passed over 2000 backers for their project and raised $134,413 when I started writing this post. Plus, they’ve added a stretch goal if they’re able to reach $150k on Kickstarter.

For those not familiar with Keyport, here’s a short description of their product:

Keyport combines technology, convenience, and style to redefine the way in which we customize, carry, and interact with our most frequently used personal items typically crammed onto a keychain or stuffed uncomfortably into a pocket or purse. Pairing utility with style, the Keyport Slide combines keys and many everyday-carry items into a streamlined keychain alternative that easily attaches to any auto remote.

Let’s help out our fellow Las Vegas startup company and support Keyport on Kickstarter. It’s great to see another Las Vegas startup company see success on Kickstarter.

PhoneSoap – Vegas Tech on Kickstarter

My friend, Dan Barnes, recently sent me a link to a KickStarter project he and his partners had created called Phone Soap: Simultaneously Charge and Sanitize Your Phone. Dan Barnes lives in Las Vegas and has been working really hard on this project. It’s a project that I’m sure many germophobes will appreciate as well.

The cool part is that Dan and his team have already raised $7,098 as of this posting from 119 backers. That’s a really great start to their project. Although, they need to reach their goal of $18,000 in the next 27 days in order to fully fund the project.

I saw some of their first designs for this product and they’ve come a really long way since those first designs. Their current design is much slicker and I can see a lot of people really liking it. If you like their idea and want to support Vegas Tech, back their project on Kickstarter.

While this is the first time I’ve posted about a startup company using Kickstarter and similar sites to raise money, I’m sure it won’t be the last. In fact, Vegas Tech company Romotive also got some initial funding through Kickstarter as well.

I also found another Downtown Project on IndieGoGo as well called Build a Greener Block. As it says in it’s description, “Who says there’s no community in Las Vegas… because we’re building one – green and sustainably.” They’ve already raised $3,499 towards their $6,500 goal and have 24 days left. Sounds like they’re going to put on a pretty killer event down town.

This is just one example why startup companies will continue to move to Las Vegas. The Las Vegas community is going through its own startup phase and a lot of smart and passionate people are doing a lot of interesting things to see what sticks. It’s an exciting time to be an entrepreneur in Las Vegas.
