Biz brief: Project Wedge seeks funds for production of projection device

Project Wedge, a Seattle startup that has ties to Olympia and The Evergreen State College, is looking to raise $100,000 through crowdfunding for production of its projection technology for tablets and smartphone devices.

The 30-day Indiegogo.com fundraising campaign was launched Saturday.

The Project Wedge device is a plug-in-and-play battery-operated projector that can operate up to 4 hours on a single charge, according to a news release.

“I’m excited and proud of my team for how far we have come with dedication and hard work, and it’s time to take the next step for Project Wedge,” said Chief Executive Robb Anthony in a statement. “The last year has been a roller-coaster with ups and downs, but it has all lead to this moment which is a major achievement, and I am excited to see what the next week will bring.”

The executive team, in addition to Anthony, who graduated from The Evergreen State College, is Chief Operations Officer Keith Tatham and Chief Development Officer Mark Rentfrow.

Project Wedge won the 2014 Pacific Lutheran University business plan competition.
