For OneClock, time is money.

The Front Range-based startup launched a Kickstarter campaign on Feb. 3 for a minimalist, sleek alarm clock that uses scientific-based music compositions to wake users up.

The campaign’s goal was $20,000, but it hit the $250,000 mark within 24 hours.

On Thursday, the campaign ended, having raised $781,718 from 3,103 backers.

OneClock was designed to replace disrupting alarms and gently lift someone out of sleep with science-based music compositions by Grammy-award winning musician Jon Natchez, who is also a member of The War on Drugs rock band. It’s available on the company’s website for $349.

Jamie Kripke, who works full-time as a photographer and director, founded OneClock with entrepreneur Lon McGowan, who is also the founder of Boulder and Miami-based Canard Ventures, and his longtime friend Howie Rubin, who has years of marketing experience as a consultant.

The founders are based in Boulder, but have six employees across the Front Range.
