My Startup is going to market this summer, and we are doing a Kickstarter Campaign until June 30 2013

Last August I Co-Founded Design by Educators, Inc. (DBE) with my friend Walter Duncan, a 14-year career teacher. DBE makes a smartphone app for teachers called Quick Key. We started with $23,000, and we have raised $187,500 over two seed rounds. We are in a race to launch, and a land-grab, with four other direct competitors. Right now we lead the way in brand recognition, but we are behind in time-to-market. On May 17th we launched a Kickstarter Campaign to take the Quick Key Beta to the Apple App Store. The Campaign runs until June 30th 2013. Our Kickstarter Campaign is off to an amazing start. With the help and support of the Babson Community, our Campaign will give us the fuel we need to pursue our most aggressive strategy and pull ahead of our competitors. Here is the link to the Campaign:
