Kite represents a global effort to develop new products, solutions, tools, methods, and technologies designed to save lives and expand what is possible for humans around the world.
From simple little patches that make humans invisible to mosquitoes, to high-tech Kite Active Delivery Systems (KADS), we spend our time developing new solutions that do not exist today for problems that face all of us, one way or another.
We are developing multiple new technologies and products intended to advance the fight against mosquitoes and mosquito-borne diseases around the world, in every climate, and for everyone.
To develop new technologies, we believe that we have to not only work to develop new, groundbreaking technology (Kite’s “core” technology), but that we also have to collaborate with others to advance other technologies and approaches. By doing so, we are expanding the types of technologies included in the Kite solutions platform, and we can consolidate the benefits of having various solutions for deployment via Kite’s distribution and deployment systems.
We’re doing what has to be done by doing things that haven’t been done.
Our approach is a reflection of our drive to build exceptionally high-quality products that can save lives and improve livelihoods around the world. We do this by leveraging the power of the crowd, by expanding the number of participants and collaborators involved in Kite technology development, and by breaking down traditional industry and technology barriers that to date have, in our opinion, prevented significant innovation from occurring in the fight against mosquito-borne diseases.
Kite’s collaboration model is supported by ieCrowd, a global innovation commercialization company dedicated to the rapid commercialization of significant scientific breakthroughs and discoveries. Thanks to ieCrowd, we have leapfrogged the traditional process for early-stage technology start-ups and companies that often need ten years to develop a single new product or active - with Kite’s development of new mosquito repellents and attractants, our creation of the global brand Kite, as well as the founding of a growing global coalition to help develop new products and applications for fighting mosquito-borne diseases.
Congratulations to 11,254 Kite Patch backers who made our crowdfunding campaign a smashing success! We concluded the campaign at over 740% of our goal and are now transitioning to implementation.
