ieCrowd, a company focused on bringing breakthrough health innovations to the marketplace, has announced that its fundraising round conducted on Crowdfunder.com has already surpassed its goals twice within two weeks of its listing, and the company is already into its third extended funding mode. ieCrowd has two breakthrough technologies including one that gives cell phones the sense of smell and a spray that makes humans practically invisible to mosquitoes. ieCrowd's campaign can be found at https://www.crowdfunder.com/iecrowd.
ieCrowd has also broken into “CNBC’s Crowdfinance 50 Index,” rising rapidly to emerge within the top 10 companies employing crowdfunding to finance its growth.
“We are thrilled that allowing individual investors, and not just big banks or funds, to invest in a company dedicated to addressing some of our biggest global health challenges is resounding so well,” said Amro Albanna, CEO of ieCrowd. “Our leadership in the concept of ‘crowd capitalism’ is growing a significant community of investors worldwide.”
The company’s lead product, Kite Shield, is a 100% DEET-free spray which when applied renders humans virtually invisible to mosquitoes (including aedes egeypti) by blocking the mosquito’s olfactory sense of smell which it uses to locate humans.
ieCrowd’s second technology, Nuuma, is a nanotube chip that gives cellphones and other smart devices the ability to smell by enabling such devices to measure air pollution, alcohol in exhaled breath, food spoilage and even bad breath. Additionally, using Nuuma to potentially detect various diseases at their earliest stage through breath analysis is of key interest to several leading medical institutions.
