Ukrainian company raises $150k on Kickstarter for the production of 3D wooden maps within 5 days
EnjoyTheWood, a Ukrainian company, which produces 3D wooden maps, launched their third campaign on Kickstarter and broke their own record. The initial amount of $5,000 was collected within the first 6 hours. Four days later, EnjoyTheWood already had $150,000. Although the collection process currently slowed down, the startup still has more than a month ahead. Over 600 backers contributed to this project.
EnjoyTheWood has raised more than $50,000 for the previous project, 3D wooden maps of cities all over the world. When the company developed its first world map, the total collected amount was $100,000.
Comparing to the latter, World Map 2.0 can boast of three layers, with a different color for each country. Maps are available in three sizes: M (60*100 cm), L (90*150), XL (120*200). Anyone can purchase them on Kickstarter for prices ranging from $119 to $356, depending on map package and size.
The founders of EnjoyTheWood are the couple Igor and Marina Fostenko. At the beginning of March 2018, the brand has purchased the patent for maps production. Today, the project team of the company comprises 15 people. Throughout its history, the startup has sold over 20,000 maps around the world.
