Northeastern student gets funding for his electric longboard, Dash
BostInno - 03/23/2015
Rough Draft Ventures has invested an undisclosed amount of money into Dash Electric, a Boston startup from a Northeastern University that is building an electric longboard.
Northeastern student Ian Carlson created his first prototype for Northeastern’s Husky Startup Challenge, and now plans to make it available as a kit—costing less than $500—which can be installed on existing longboards.
Carlson “sees his low-cost alternative to the $1000–2000 electric longboards on the market as filling a void for young commuters and longboard enthusiasts,” Rough Draft wrote in a Medium postannouncing the investment.
