With the first 3D printable Cyrcle Phone, the team focused on building momentum in the maker community — writing a community guide to launching a hardware startup and educating people around the world about DIY mobile communications devices.

Hard work and networking: Christina was featured by Washington State at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, interviewed on Seattle’s King 5 News, ran the hardware track at Techstars Startup Week, is a annual GeekGirlCon panel moderator, and has been a featured hardware innovator on over 10 leadership panels.
The Original Cyrcle Phone was Fully Funded on Kickstarter.
Towards the end of 2015, CEO Christina Cyr left Microsoft with the vision to redefine mobile communications. Thanks to 135 backers, we delivered our DIY, 3D printable, 2G LTE phone education kits in a record 60 days.
