Crowd Funding The New bFan® – A Breeze?

Kurt Tompkins invented the original Bedfan, over 10 years ago. Over the last ten years he has listened to his customers, noted their requests and made observations to what worked and what did not. Kurt took this knowledge and redesigned his Bedfan into the new and improved bFan®. He registered his trade mark, applied for his patent and rounded up his suppliers. The only thing missing was the money to make it all happen.

Kurt will be presenting his journey into the crowd funding world from Kickstarter to Indiegogo. He will discuss how he was able to raise half a million dollars in less than 40 days. What worked, what didn’t and what came from being at the right place at the right time. He will talk about the work put in before, during and now, after the dust has cleared.

Mr. Tompkins will be giving the group a first look at the new bFan® and giving details as to what he did to get from concept to pre-production using todays favorite funding platform, Kickstarter.

The Kickstarter campaign has ended but can be seen at bFan Kickstarter Campaign. See the Indiegogo campaign at bFan Indiegogo Campaign.



Starting in May 2017, the meetings will be held on the first Wednesday of the month through November of this year.

The presentation and networking will be held in the conference room on the south side of the building which faces Fredericksburg Road.
