Our Kickstarter Journey (part 1/5)

February 12, 2017

Hey Uvolt Insiders,

We have made a lot of progress in the past weeks. No matter the stepbacks we kept focusing and moving forward.

This is the first of a five-part email update ramping up towards our Kickstarter Campaign. We want to make sure you are entirely comfortable with how we do things, so we will be totally transparent.

Without further ado, here is what you need to know.

Ambassador Program

If you are interested in joining our team, now is the time ! We have just launched an Ambassador Program for all to join. Basically, a Uvolt Ambassador represents the Uvolt brand and all we do in his or her everyday life. We want you to be spreading the word as much as possible.

Also, since we know you all have something to bring to the table, an Ambassador will be way more than just a representative or a salesman. You have skills in writing ? You’re passionate about photography or graphic design ? No matter what your area of expertise is, we want you on our team.

If this sounds interesting to you, just apply using this link : apply.uvolt.ca

Audrey, the program manager, will get back to you as soon as possible.

Prototypes

You have probably seen some pictures on our social media pages, or maybe you just heard about it, but our newest batch of prototypes is coming to life. Our engineers are working tirelessly to put them together.

The design is done, the electric circuits are done and the parts have been

chosen. They are being produced and shipped as we speak. We are now waiting on them to assemble the prototypes.

There have been some crazy delays in the past weeks. Indeed, China was litteraly closed for a while. Why ? it was the Chinese New Year, and that is a pretty big deal in the chinese culture. It means we will have to wait just a while longer for the solar panels we ordered.

We can’t wait to show them to you. For the first time, the prototypes will have the same feel as the final product !

A New Giveaway !

We have the chance of being in a community where the support available to all is unmatched. The support we get from people is simply amazing. We don’t even have our final product yet, and you guys still believe in us and support us regardless.

Also, the Montreal Startup Ecosystem has that same feel to it. Whenever you need help, there always seems to be another startup willing to give you a hand.

With that in mind, we decided to give back to everyone. We have teamed up with some incredible startups to bring you an awesome contest.

5 startups, 5 prizes worth more than 1000$ in total. Want to win one of these companies’ product (including our own Uvolt Watch !) ? Simply sign up here : https://www.startupmtlconcours.com

Stay tuned for the next 4 parts of these updates. As mentionned earlier, we want to make sure you know exactly what’s going on and where we’re heading. I have a feeling we will have a lot to talk about.

Thank you,

Antony Diaz Founder & CEO at Uvolt
