As of September 21st, Silicon Valley based Knightscope has already closed $15 million dollars of Regulation A+ crowdfunding from over 4,000 investors. Add that to the over $14 million the company has already raised through three previous financings, and you have the makings of a strong company targeting an industry that has no where else to go but up: security.
Knightscope develops “robo cop” advanced physical security technologies focused on enhancing U.S. security operations and have recently completed prototypes of their K1 stationary and K7 multi-terrain machines. The company now has 46 machines under contract with 35 clients in 9 states. Their Reg.A deal has been successful so far mainly because they have an army of loyal customers and investors who are excited about their product and the future benefits it promises. That’s the key to any Regulation A+ deal: marketing! And those who do it well will succeed.
With a goal to reduce crime and violence nationwide through robotics, their robots have already been seen in California in over ten cities including LA, San Jose, Sacramento, Mountain View, North Hollywood, San Bernardino, Sunnyvale, and Santa Clara. According to the company’s Chairman and CEO, William Santana Li:
“Through the Reg A+ process we have been able to fundraise, connect with potential clients, recruit and build the brand – all at the same time. And now, we have 4,000+ backers all across the country rooting for us, opening doors and generally being extremely supportive as we rollout out our autonomous security robots nationwide.”
As we’ve mentioned many times on our news blog and heard on the Reg.A Money Show radio podcast, there are now many companies understanding that there are gains to be made from equity crowdfunding via Regulation A+. Reg.A+ makes raising capital online a reality and as more companies such as Knightscope are successful at proving Reg.A+ works, more and more will seek to use this game changer – and companies like the Reg.A Funding Group are here to guide these businesses through the Reg.A process to a successful outcome.
If investors still want in on the Knightscope deal, they have until October 10th, 2017 to take advantage as the offering closes on that day. The offering can be found on the crowdfunding portal “SeedInvest”. Want more info on Reg.A+ to see if it’s right for you and your company?
