Dragon Innovation, a Boston, MA- and China-based manufacturing services firm, closed a $2.3m financing.
The round was led by Flybridge Capital Partners and Foundry Group, with participation from The Box Group, Lerer Ventures and Undercurrent Ventures.
Led by Scott N. Miller, co-founder and CEO, Dragon Innovation today also launched a crowdfunding platform exclusively for hardware companies. Leveraging its expertise in providing services and support during the planning and production phases of new product development (design for manufacturing, request for quote (RFQ), factory selection, project management, costing, sourcing, quality control and manufacturing), the company is now expanding the scope of its offering to include crowdfunding.
The platform today officially opens up the private beta period with several innovative hardware products seeking funding.
