Reasons to Invest

We've received $5.9 million in reservations by selling out our first production run of 3,000 Founding Edition units.
We closed a $3.8 million Series Seed Preferred financing between August and October 2020, and we have a vision to grow a large company with our flagship product, software and future products.
We began mass production in November 2020 and delivery of our Founding Edition units is underway. We expect to produce approximately 500 units per month of the Founding Edition.

The Problem


Our devices and minds are saturated by the chaos of digital communication

We’re at our best when we feel connected and inspired by each other. But we are overwhelmed with constant messages and notifications, making it harder than ever to stay connected with each other, let alone inspired to create new things. That’s why we created Vestaboard, a beautiful smart messaging display you can control by mobile app that puts shared messages front and center with your favorite people. With Vestaboard, you can inspire from anywhere by easily sending messages that amplify your voice and create delightful moments of connection for others.

The Solution


A smart display that brings people together

Vestaboard is a modern internet-connected display that can be controlled from anywhere. Unlike other forms of electronic communication, Vestaboard offers focused, high-visibility messaging that brings people together and creates more inspiring environments.

The Market


A product in a large and fast-growing market which can be used in almost every segment

According to business research firm Markets and Markets, the global smart display and smart digital signage market is expected to grow from USD $861 million in 2018 to USD $6.6 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 34.0%. 


The market for smart displays and signage is in its infancy and the market segments that can and will benefit from smart displays are very large.

Vestaboard’s target markets include:


  • Homes - While Vestaboard is priced for modern, more affluent homes, based on our analysis we estimate there are at least 3 million homes in the United States valued at $1 million or more, meaning a target market potential of $6.75 billion. 

  • Businesses - This includes targeted workplaces in offices, hospitality, retail, health services, educational institutions and real estate development firms. Based on our analysis, we estimate there are 21 million locations that operate in these areas in the United States across small, medium and enterprise businesses.


*Target Markets are based on Vestaboard's analysis of publicly available data relating to homes and businesses across the U.S.

Our Traction


With millions of dollars in preorders, we have begun mass production

video

*Please refer to our image disclaimer at the end of our campaign for further details.

Vestaboard has amassed $5.9 million in pre-orders representing over 3,000 units sold to customers, including from well-known companies and individuals, and we are now in production. We estimate our forecasted gross margin for our product based on its average selling price in 2020 to be between 35% and 40%.  For recognized revenue in 2020 and 2021, Vestaboard expects its gross margin to be lower due to incentives in place to encourage early reservations prior to 2020. Please refer to our risk factors section of our Form C and our forward-looking information legend at the end of this page.


In December 2019 and January 2020, we manufactured 17 units for engineering validation testing.  During June we manufactured 51 units for design validation testing and 21 of these first units were shipped to customers in the month of August. We moved to mass production in early November, and we estimate building approximately 500 units per month with no further material design changes.

What We Do


Connecting families, co-workers & guests like never before

 

*Please refer to our image disclaimer at the end of our campaign for further details.

Vestaboard can be used at home to create art, share messages with loved ones, post words of inspiration, and help with organization. It can also be used at work to keep team members and customers in sync and up-to-date. Our mobile app makes communication easy, allowing you to update your Vestaboard from anywhere in the world and send pre-scheduled messages. Additionally, via IFTTT.com Vestaboard can be connected to your Alexa or Google Home and can receive automated updates from your favorite apps, such as calendars, Slack, Teamsnap and more.

*Please refer to our image disclaimer at the end of our campaign for further details.

The Business Model


Direct to customers

Our direct to customer model currently operates through vestaboard.com. We make direct to business sales, as well, by marketing and selling our product to key decision-makers at offices, retail, hospitality, health services, education, real estate and property development companies.  We also plan to build channel and sales relationships to reach customers through home and commercial technology integrators, architects & designers or international partners.


We plan to offer a mobile app and web service for free.  We also plan to offer premium software access in the future, creating a potential stream of recurring revenue attached to Vestaboard. Even in the case of sales of Vestaboard via third parties, we expect to have a direct to end customer relationship through our mobile app and web service.


We believe our cloud and mobile software platform will be a significant source of growth for the Company in the future as we are able to add new devices in addition to our flagship models of Vestaboard.

How We Are Different


Vestaboard is not a screen but syncs with your favorite apps

*Please refer to our image disclaimer at the end of our campaign for further details.

We have created a versatile product that can be used in a wide variety of settings. Unlike traditional display signage, Vestaboard carries a unique and modern design that amplifies or complements any interior environment.

*Please refer to our image disclaimer at the end of our campaign for further details.

Vestaboard is accompanied by a suite of cloud and mobile software tools to control Vestaboard out of the box and allowing it to  be updated from anywhere by individuals or team members. With a focus on messaging and information, its uses range from an inspiring message or family calendar inside the home to a menu display board or guest messaging system inside a business.


Vestaboard’s application programming interface (API) allows third party development on Vestaboard, opening up the possibilities for an ecosystem of applications for our customers.

“The Vestaboard is in my home office. Every day the kids stop by and read the quotes I post. They love the sound that it makes and find it so cool that we have ‘art that changes.’ The posts are great conversation-starters for my kids, and a personal challenge for me is to find quotes that they can both understand and appreciate.”

Why Invest in Vestaboard?

4 months ago



“Vestaboard could become the next major communication medium,” says one of our recent investors.


Zain Jaffer, founder of Vungle, which sold to private equity giant Blackstone for over $750 million, recently blogged about the reasons he invested in Vestaboard. Jaffer noted that he chooses to invest in startups that can create an entire new market and are supported by a strong mission. While he doesn’t typically invest in direct-to-consumer products “Vestaboard has the opportunity to capitalize on consumer’s new unmet needs and innovate in the smart home & office communications space.” Read more about Zain Jaffer’s decision to invest in his blog Building a Visceral Experience: Investing in a Tech Startup that Inspires.”

Vestaboard's Founding Edition with inscription located inside of Vestaboard


Vestaboard is excited to focus on its StartEngine crowdfunding campaign after a successful Series Seed financing, commencing mass production and selling out of its Founding Edition.

Vestaboard sold out of all 3,000 Founding Edition units in November, amassing $5.9 million in pre-orders. Learn about the process, hard work and exceptional team that were part of designing and creating this beautiful product in our CEO’s recent letter.

Mass production began in November, and Vestaboard customers are receiving their Founding Edition units. The Company expects to ship 3,000 limited edition, specially inscribed “Founding Edition 2020” units between now and Spring 2021. 

In October, Vestaboard held the second closing of a $3.8 million seed financing. Participants in the financing include seasoned technology investors who were also early investors, such as Hany Nada (board member at Houzz and DraftKings), Bob Abbott (former General Partner at Norwest Venture Partners) and Baroda Ventures (David Bohnett), as well as many of our wonderful customers.

The Company started delivering Vestaboard to some of its earliest customers in August, including celebrities like Jennifer Garner, entrepreneurs like Alexis Ohanian, engineers and more. Take a look.

Dorrian Porter is the founder and CEO of Vestaboard. Steve Zadesky, who led and built the teams at Apple for the first iPod, first iPhone, and hundreds of Apple accessory products, is an advisor to the CEO. The design and engineering team members behind Vestaboard helped launch successful smart home products such as the Amazon Echo and Nest.

We will now put our attention to the offering here on StartEngine and proceed expeditiously to promoting and closing this offering in the coming weeks. For our current investors, we note that you are asked to reconfirm your investment when we make a material update, and we thank you for your patience with this legal requirement. Whether as an investor, customer or both, we invite you to join us on our journey forward.

We'll be announcing our campaign and inviting our customers to participate later this week.  We are excited to share a little bit about our customers with you:

  • We count over 2,000 incredible individuals, well-known companies and brands as our customers

  • Some of our customers include Alexis Ohanian (co-founder of Reddit), venture capitalist Hany Nada (board member of Houzz, DraftKings and investor in Vestaboard) and Olle Lundberg of the highly-rated architecture practice Lundberg Design 

  • Vestaboard has pre-orders for 2,319 Vestaboard units as of today

  • Our demand for 2020 has exceeded our planned supply, and new customers are placed on a waitlist


Our first ever live event last week was a huge success with nearly 400 attendees. You can view and share the replay at any time in our News Hub on the Vestaboard website.
