As I mentioned about a month ago, Jane Wells has been working on a new venture called Jitterbug which aims to be a bakery with a cafe feel complete with WiFi. To help fund this venture and to purchase some equipment, Jane put together a project on KickStarter.com to generate crowd sourced capital. The monetary goal was $15,000.00 and that was reached just 4 days prior to the project expiring. One particular backer was able to pledge $5,000.00 and will have a muffin named after him. The backer was Michael Torbert, the author behind the All In One SEO Plugin.
Congratulations goes out to Jane Wells for a successful kickstarter project. I myself chipped in a hundred bucks but the best thing about it all is that I now have a really good reason to visit Tybee Island, Georgia.
