Integrated Solarbank, power and bluetooth speaker
Solarbank is a 3-in-1 Powerbank, High Quality Audio, & Solar Regeneration portable power system. Solarbank features high-quality 4G Solar Technology designed and produced by Solgaard Design.
Solgaard Design was born out of a talented team frustrated with current products on the market.
We strive to create things which meet the needs of many by doing things which most companies won’t. We pour our hearts and souls into the products you hold in your hands today. We venture to make the world an easier place to live and succeed. "Solgaard" is my family name from my Mother’s side. It means “Sun farm” it’s actually the name of the family home where my mother grew up in Southern Norway. I spent many of my summers there. The house is still in the family as it has been for 5 generations. Solar power is what powers all of this amazing planet we call home. Why not find ways to harness that energy and use it to power our other daily activities? In Scandinavia sunlight is scarce – but amazingly appreciated when you get it. Norway has a culture of working hard all year long- then when the sun is shining in the summertime it’s time to enjoy the fruits of your labour.
Describe your product in 3 words.
Ready For Anything
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
I spend a lot of time on-the-go for work. Working from airports, hotels, cafes, wherever – and I need to be just as productive as I am when being in an office. I also love having music with me when I’m on the go so I designed a solution that has everything I would need to accomodate this mobile work life which I believe will help everyone else too.
What makes your product special?
We’ve re-invented the mobile office – and at the same time made a product suitable for every day life so you are prepared for whatever life throws at you. Whether that’s meeting a big client or meeting a big group of friends – you’re ready for anything.
What has been the best part of your startup experience?
Launching on Kickstarter and breaking our goal within 6 hours was incredible – selling a product nobody had seen or touched yet was amazing. Now seeing thousands of bags all around the world and everyone loving it – hearing how it is helping their life in this new mobile workforce culture, that is the best part.
