One more iCPooch update. On Monday, Feb. 17, the Spokane dog-tech startup exceeded its Kickstarter target of $20,000. We posted on that yesterday.
Chris Martin, father of company inventor Brooke Martin -- who's 14 -- sent us an email explaining where that Kickstarter money will go:
"We'll use the funds to put the finishing touches on our custom software. We'll be officially launching iCPooch at Global Pet Expo in Orlando on March 12. This will put us in front of retailers and distributors from around the world.
And KeyTronic will be doing our injection molding, Servatron is manufacturing our custom micro-controller and product assembly will be done in Spokane Valley by us. We're excited to provide more jobs to our regional economy."
