EE Times:  How did Qualcomm gain the automotive industry’s trust?

Misfit, the activity tracker company, is perhaps crowdfunding’s biggest success story. It started on Indiegogo and wound up being acquired by watchmaker Fossil in 2015 for $260 million.

But success is the exception, not the rule. Indiegogo hosted about 1,300 product launches last year, a small fraction of the 19,000 campaigns that it supports each month. The good news is that it saw an 18% year-over-year gain in the fourth quarter in funds raised for tech entrepreneurs, its focus area.

China has been Indiegogo’s big growth engine. Since it opened an office in Shenzhen about three years ago, it has raised $150 million for China’s entrepreneurs, up roughly 75% a year.

In the last quarter of 2018. five of Indiegogo’s top 10 campaigns were in China, and the country’s entrepreneurs had a 32% share of all funds the online service raised.

About half of our blockbuster campaigns are from China, largely clustered around Shenzhen,” he said.

China web giants Alibaba and JD.com have crowdfunding services. But they don’t reach a large U.S. audience … So far, the China government has been very supportive of us,” Mandelbrot said.

Indiegogo is adding services such as a video studio to help China’s entrepreneurs. It is also striking partnerships with companies like AT&T and Square to add services for its U.S. users.

INT is focused on high-end medical and military applications. While current display systems for medical use can only be used for non-critical operations, the company expects the higher data capacity of 5G to allow its display technology to free up doctors by providing depth and clear detail during a wide range of surgical operations.

With military applications, soldiers on a battlefield will be able to use next-generation displays with AR to access in-depth information. The company expects new displays combining AR and AI to make a microscope into a diagnostics tool.

No More Screen Door

Chu says UHPD is especially well-suited to VR and AR because it eliminates the screen-door” effect that has plagued users. At the same time, it provides an exceptionally immersive user experience, he says.

The founder of INT, who has held top-management-level positions in a number of major display manufacturing companies, has formed a new business model that gives partners access to the company’s core knowledge and technologies.
