Jeffrey Maganis is a former hedge fund manager who’s now taken to Indiegogo to get funding for the ChargeAll, a portable battery with electric outlets that we previously covered here.
Maganis described his background to us as “always chasing shiny objects across multiple industries. It’s interesting seeing what professions are in vogue and how they always seem to change with the times. I remember how being a doctor was cool, then it was being a real estate/hedge fund investor and now it’s all things technology.”
And the vogue way to raise money for all things tech nowadays is with a well-thought-out crowdfunding campaign. ChargeAll kicked off on IndieGogo in search of $30,000. With 15 days of fundraising left, Maganis and company have raised (at the time of this writing) just under $142,000. We spoke to him to get the story on how they’re breaking that goal so successfully.
