Ukrainian wooden maps raise $0.5M on Kickstarter which is 100 times the original goal
Ukrainian EnjoyTheWood completed fundraising for its 3D wooden map of the world — World Map 2.0.
The fundraising campaign on Kickstarter was closed on June 9 with $533,530 pledged by 1,851 backers. The company managed to exceed 100 times the original goal. EnjoyTheWood wanted to raise a minimum of $5,000, but they raised this amount in just 6 hours into the campaign. The map was sold in four sizes with price ranging from $119 to $356. They also offered a more expensive LED illuminated map.
You can also buy various add-ons like aircraft metal push pins or wooden historical sight pins.
In addition, the company is testing the launch of its own iOS app with the support of augmented reality — EnjoyTheWood AR.
First backers will get their maps as soon as in July 2019.
