A 21-year-old entrepreneur from regional NSW has raised more than $80,000 on crowdfunding platform Indiegogo to develop a pair of wireless earphones.
Jonathan Zuvela, from the town of Lithgow, smashed his target of $20,000 within days and still has more than 20 to go before the campaign ends. The current rate of pledges has seen the young entrepreneur raise around $10,000 per day.
The product, called Nextear, is a pair of wireless earphones that also come in a case that charges a user’s phone and hold 16GB in storage.
Zuvela told StartupSmart he got the idea of developing a pair of wireless headphones because he competes in BMX competitions and would always have to stuff his phone into his pocket and thread the headphones up through his shirt.
