Alexandre Albisser (Phelma class of 2020) loves music, design, and making instruments. He and two other Phelma grads founded startup Revehō in January to develop and commercialize a travel electric guitar concept that Alexandre came up with when he was a student entrepreneur.
The modular Slite guitar can be assembled and disassembled and has a built-in amplifier, making it a high-end, all-in-one product that comes with its own compact case. It is designed for on-the-go use and is easy to carry on public transportation, for example. With a retail price of €1,548, it is aligned with entry-level high-end instruments.
The company is running a Kickstarter campaign until October 9. The target of €100,000 will go towards completing development work and scaling up the concept for manufacturing. Manufacturing is scheduled to start in early 2021.
