Guest Post - Taking the Ecofriendly Ecommerce Store to Crowdfunding by Frank Molina

We don’t make anything. We haven’t come up with the latest video game or the next hottest electronic widget, but we have something many crowdfunders don’t. Not just one great product, but many great products made by some of the hottest brand names in solar and portable energy from around the world. For us, it’s more about selling our customer experience; things like offering a wider selection of sustainable products, faster shipping, ease of doing business, and so on.

Guest Post - Taking the Ecofriendly Ecommerce Store to Crowdfunding by Frank Molina

Shop Akari is an ecofriendly store for solar panel systems and components, portable chargers and electronics, and other sustainable products. On Monday, April 6, 2015, we’re launching a crowdfunding campaign through Indiegogo. We’ve been in business for more than six years and inventory 90% of the products we sell, but we can do better. That’s why we’re crowdfunding.

The exciting thing about the products we sell is that they’re better for the environment, convenient, or fun to use. Today, solar power makes up just 1% of the energy market, but according to the International Energy Agency, solar will be the single largest source of energy by 2050. Think about that. In just 35 years, we may see solar panels almost everywhere we go. Improvements upon battery backup power are also bringing people ever closer to living off the grid and making portable electricity easier and more reliable to use.

We’re excited about our crowdfunding campaign and I hope to see you there. We’ve got some innovative new products that you can learn about for the first time right on our crowdfunding page. To receive updates, like us on Facebook at or follow us on Twitter at or Pinterest at
