September 25, 2018

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 25, 2018--KingsCrowd, a Boston based leading independent, third party equity crowdfunding research and rating service, names its latest ‘Top Deal,’ Mycroft AI.

Mycroft AI, an open source voice assistant envisioned by Founder & CEO, Josh Montgomery, is taking on the likes of Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s HomePod with a focus on consumer privacy. The team launched an equity crowdfunding campaign on June 11, 2018 and has raised over $550K in capital to date on StartEngine.com, a leading equity crowdfunding platform.

“After analyzing the business from a market, company and founder perspective, we feel the team at Mycroft AI is well positioned to capitalize on the demand for a voice assistant solution that actually respects consumer privacy,” said Chris Lustrino, Founder and CEO of KingsCrowd. “We analyze startups across the equity crowdfunding portals and through our robust, in-house due diligence process, we identify the top 10% of deals we consider to be ‘Top Deals.’ Mycroft definitely fit the bill,” said Lustrino.

“We’re thrilled to have KingsCrowd recognize how well positioned Mycroft is,” said Josh Montgomery, Founder and CEO. “Support for our crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine is a critical part of our effort to build a voice assistant for everyone who isn’t a Big Tech giant.”

The campaign is still live and accepting investment to help the team prepare for commercialization of the Mycroft AI product set.
