Updates: fundraising, product, album, partnerships
We're working hard and so appreciative for your support of us on this journey. Thank you! Here are some updates:
We just exceeded our minimum goal of $20K in fundraising commitments - we're excited! That said, we have a few loose-ends to tie up to turn some commitments into funds received. We continue to push hard to gather additional investment by the June 30 deadline. We're in the home stretch! If you know anyone who'd be interested in investing, please do pass along the link: wefunder.com/boyishrecords
We are in the early stages of working on a software prototype that we'll be launching this Fall in conjunction with Astu's album release. The product is focused on cultivating a deeper relationship between artist and audience in a project release, as well as art-focused community building. We are building this ourselves with no-code tools. It's a significant time commitment and learning curve, but we can hack our way on our own to develop a prototype without custom code. Our prototype won't be perfect, but we're excited to create, experiment, and share with users and our community. It's liberating for us to build this on our own (as "indie hackers"), which is very much in the spirit of our company supporting independent artists.
Astu's album is about 95% complete and will be 100% complete in the coming weeks. This is a big accomplishment and we can soon invest more energy into the software development stage of our prototyping.
We're cultivating potential business partnerships with established, reputable companies and advisors in our space. If formalized (which we hope will happen in the coming months), this will present more growth opportunity in the near-term.
Wefunder supports three different federal laws that allow startups to raise money legally. To comply with the law, Wefunder Advisors LLC and Wefunder Portal LLC (both owned by Wefunder Inc) also list startups depending on the regulation used.

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).
