What we do: Bluesmart is an electronics-laced carry-on designed to solve real problems with luggage. Bluesmart carry-ons include a digital lock, location tracking, and proximity alerts-- all accessible from a mobile app. Why it's a big deal: The airlines lost nearly 22 million bags last year; passengers are left with no idea when they’ll get their luggage. With Bluesmart, tracking your bag is as easy as pulling out your phone. Luggage is located and delivered right to your door courtesy of an Uber driver. But Bluesmart doesn’t just solve basic travel problems, it's the ultimate travel gadget. Passengers no longer need to hunt for the perfect seat near the outlet, or have their laptop run out of battery mid flight. Stow away your laptop and let it charge in the Bluesmart, then lock your bag from your phone. This is the first bag adapted to the digital world; no wonder they pre-sold 7,000 units in their first two months.

Curious how well the companies have done? Or how many raised follow-on financing?
Some fine print: 1) These numbers include startups currently live on Wefunder if they pass their minimum target. 2) Some startups use two different laws at the same time (i.e., Regulation D and Regulation Crowdfunding).
