San Francisco, Calif., November 14, 2017, 7:11:00PM
With spiking concerns of disconnection and emotional health problems associated with technology – such as feelings of isolation, and lack of presence, Pillow, a Love and Intimacy Education platform is on a mission to deepen connection in relationships. Mass market consumer technology is one of the most powerful global behavior change agents of this time, and Pillow believes it can be used to bring the world closer, bringing this education to millions with their mobile app. Additionally, the #metoo movement flooding the media with sharings of sexual assault and trauma, further indicates that Pillow could teach intimacy and trust between men and women. Tomorrow, November 15th at 11:11AM PT, Pillow launches their equity crowdfunding campaign via WeFunder inviting the growing community of couples, experts, educators and all people passionate about relationships, to be vested in Pillow’s success.
WeFunder is slightly different to other popular crowdfunding sites such as Kickstarter, because individuals are actually investing in Pillow Inc. Anyone can invest from as little (or as much) as $111, $1,111 or $11,111 (or $111,111).
“In a world of separation, we asked the question “Who teaches love in our modern world?” And “How can we get their voices into millions of couples homes in a quick to start, interactive, playful and affordable way?” As more experts and audiences learned of what we were building, many of them wanted to be involved in any way they could. Not only with creating the couples exercises, but supporting our growth financially,” said Darren J Smith, Pillow CEO and Founder. “Therefore we decided to use crowd equity. This is a global partnership between us, experts and anyone who wants to invest in love.”
“I’ve been working with Pillow since its inception, and as a therapist, I can easily recognize the impact of these exercises,” said Kate Moyle, Pillow’s in-house Psychosexual and Relationship Therapist. “So much of the content is what we are advising people to do as therapists anyway in terms of the exercises we might be recommending. And it works for everybody when it’s in a convenient format.”
Just from bootstrapping, Pillow has helped thousands of busy couples explore their intimate relationship. Within five years, the platform aims to offer a variety of tools for couples to explore intimacy, create relationship rituals & check-ins, and 1000’s of expertly crafted exercises. The investment from this campaign will help further develop their technology infrastructure, craft 100+ new exercises and offer a way for experts to gain exposure to a new and wider audience.
Pillow offers dozens of expertly designed, short, fun exercises for any couple to play along to in the comfort of their home. Pillow is therapist-approved: many recommend the app to their clients.These exercises nurture a variety of soft skills that aren’t usually given priority in the western education system — skills such as empathy, openness, compassion, forgiveness, gratitude, patience, self-acceptance, permission-giving, and more.
