LIVSN Kickstarts $500k Campaign for New Product

Fayetteville-based LIVSN Designs has raised more than $500,000 through a Kickstarter campaign for the launch of their new product. The outdoor apparel company originally needed $10,000 for the launch of the new "EcoTrek" pants but quickly exceeded those numbers, raising over $100,000 in the first eight hours.

  • The company's most recent Kickstarter campaign raised $106,364 in summer 2019, and CEO Andrew Gibbs-Dabney said he expected to double or triple those numbers this time around. The current campaign allows supporters to "place pledges" to buy the company’s products.
  • The EcoTrek pants are basically one-half of a super suit. They are water-resistant, sweat-wicking and quick-drying and include a drawstring waistband and an expanded zippered phone pocket on the thigh.
  • “After having worked on the EcoTrek pants for months and months, it’s a huge honor to see the outpouring of people supporting our next product,” Gibbs-Dabney said. “Many of the people who backed the EcoTrek Kickstarter are the same people who helped get LIVSN off the ground, and that means the world to us." -Talk Business & Politics
