Tapsquire startup smashes crowdfunding goal

Tapsquire startup

Tapsquire is a unique tap card wallet aiming to make finding, tapping and storing your smart cards more convenient and elegant.

This cool startup is a joint venture between a Melbourne musician named Ben, and his mining engineer dad, who approached Outerspace with a semi-functional prototype. Outerspace will help make the product robust, reliable and engineered for mass production while refining the aesthetic and quality details to ensure the original vision is realised.

Tapsquire recently smashed their crowdfunding goal in less than six hours, and rocketed to #3 out of 30,000 projects in their category. Get in quick – you still have a chance to back the project and get your very own >
