The Flow Hive Indiegogo campaign has a place in the annals of crowdfunding history as the most successful crowdfunding venture ever launched outside the U.S., with contributions from 116 countries.
A small team based on the far north coast of NSW, and led by father-son inventing team Stuart and Cedar Anderson, raised just under US$12.2 million, with the campaign currently listed as the sixth-highest funded crowdfunding venture ever, and the second most successful for Indiegogo.
Since the end of the campaign, the team has worked tirelessly on fulfilling some 30,000 orders and shipping them to all corners of the globe.
While leaping a succession of supply chain, manufacturing and logistics hurdles, the team has also been able to develop its internal processes and edge toward being not only a manufacturer and marketer of the most significant beekeeping invention since 1852, but also as a prominent advocate for bees.
The team’s commitment to educating new beekeepers and raising awareness of how crucial bees are to human survival is unwavering, along with a broader message of sustainability and recognition of the interconnectedness of all life on Earth.
