Hours Left: Thank You From the Train Station!

Thank You From the Train Station! 

Hi Everyone, it's Bill.  Yes, the guy answering your questions almost 24/7, hosting town halls, sending a couple of emails here and there, forcing things to happen, and generally stirring up way too much trouble!

It's been a long six months - but we've made some great progress, welcomed thousands of awesome new investors, signed up numerous new clients, created dozens of new American jobs, put new crime fighting wins on the board, pulled in $10 million of new financing we announced earlier, and now we are over the $20 million mark for this offering.  😅 

Don't know about you but I'm absolutely exhausted and in need of some serious sleep. But before doing that I recorded a quick video here in Mountain View to just say THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to all of you that made this all possible.

And for the thousands of followers that haven't yet invested, yes, the train is leaving the station. Don't get left behind!  🤖 🚀

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA – April 21, 2021 – Knightscope, Inc., a developer of advanced physical security technologies utilizing fully autonomous robots focused on enhancing U.S. security operations, announced today that it has secured up to $10 million in financing for its operations.

Another Self-Storage Contract!

Another Self-Storage Contract!  

Self-storage is a $40 billion market in the US with over 10% of all households renting one or more of the 49,000+ units available at an average cost of $1,069 per year.  Renters expect their stored goods to be protected and Knightscope is proud to be trusted with such a tremendous responsibility.  As previously seen with casinos, corporate campuses and healthcare, the announcement of our first storage facility in January 2021 helped to quickly secure our second sale in this vertical and we are optimistic that others will follow soon.

3 Days Left: ANOTHER Deployment?!

ANOTHER Deployment?!

Is anyone getting tired of hearing that Knightscope has deployed another robot at another Southern California casino?  WE’RE NOT!  This beautiful security robot received “white-glove” packaging and will be delivered to its new home this week.  It will be part of the initial guest experience as it patrols the grand lobby keeping everyone safe and happy as they prepare to hit the tables and slot machines.

One of the most important things for startups to do is "ship". We are literally doing that (with a fancy modular crate) changing the world one robot at a time. 

What? You thought we just downloaded the A.I. robots from the cloud?! ☁️ 🤖 🤓

4 Days Left: A SIXPACK of Sales!

A SIXPACK of Sales!

As of this past week, there are 16 states and the District of Columbia that have legalized recreational use of cannabis, and 19 states that allow its use for medicinal purposes. Because the banking system does not yet fully support a business operating in this space, however, many cannabis retailers have large amounts of cash on hand.  

According to the Wharton School of Business Public Policy Initiative, “in the absence of being banked, one in every two cannabis dispensaries were robbed or burglarized – with the average thief walking away with anywhere from $20,000 to $50,000 in a single theft.”  

One California cannabis cultivation distribution and retail organization signed a contract for SIX (6) K1s to be prominently featured at the main entrance of several of its facilities.  In addition to their roles in security, these K1s will be deployed equipped with Knightscope’s new Elevated Body Temperature (EBT) detection feature to support California’s commitment to curtailing the spread of COVID-19.

HOW INVESTING WORKS

Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
