IPD client launches crowdfunding campaign


Our clients, inventors Craig and Steve, have started down the on-trend crowdfunding road with their product The Aura Oxygen Mask.

The Aura Oxygen Mask was designed for use in areas where air pollution is at a dangerously high level.  The mask is the first of it’s kind using a flexible and airtight seal, using the latest in medical grade silicone; a 4-valve non-return system, a top standard filter and also a comfortable and easy-to-use design.

As the name suggests, it also has a patented O2 capsule, boasting many health benefits.

Craig and Steve have launched their product on Indiegogo, a popular crowdfunding platform. Crowdfunding platforms are quickly becoming the place to be when it comes to new products. It isn’t often that individual inventors have the financial backing to manufacture products themselves, so these platforms are a great way to get the product out there and collectively raise money at the same time.

Innovate helped the two inventors with designing the concept itself and with the patent application.

Their crowdfunding campaign looks great (featuring all the designs Innovate produced throughout!) and explains the product’s impressive properties. The pair are aiming for a total of £285,000, is this something you would support?

It’s taken the Aura Oxygen Mask less than a year to get to this stage; if this is something you would like to explore with your own idea, send it in for a confidential review.
