Bay Area company SlingFin has always done stuff differently. So it’s no surprise the team…
As of yesterday, Title III of the JOBS Act went into effect. Small companies now have the opportunity to offer up part of their equity to non-accredited investors, namely those of us with a net worth less than $1 million or earning less than $200,000 per year. For fans of the company in question, it’s like buying into a Kickstarter campaign but in return you get a tiny slice of equity instead of the future promise of product and a T-shirt.
Newcomer Slingfin has set out to design a tent where all components are equally strong, making the tent stronger as a whole. Last weekend, the company held a puja ceremony at their new home in Berkeley, CA to bless the upcoming Everest climb with Mountain Trip, where the Slingfin tents will be put through their paces.
