Open call for investors for Iron Sky Universe raises over 300% of initial minimum goal in under 24 hours.

The crowfunding campaign to sell shares of Iron Sky Universe [see separate story here] has already hit its initial minimum goal.

Raising over $200,000 through Invesdor, the campaign’s first day brought in more than 300% of the minimum goal for the company.

Producer Tero Kaukomaa commented: “We had seen the interest for this kind of funding for Iron Sky Universe, but yesterday’s result exceeded all our wildest expectations. It’s a nice outcome just before Cannes where we are pitching our sequel.”

Responding to the interest, the campaign has been extended until midnight (Finnish time) on May 20 for its first financing round.

The raised funds will be used to develop the Iron Sky sequel - Iron Sky: The Coming Race - and other films, games and a TV series of the same franchise.
