A local networking software company wants to give people the ability to use multiple Internet connections to make the Internet faster — but first, it needs some help from the public.
Connectify, the Center City-based company that developed software that could turn a Windows 7 PC into a wireless hotspot and saw international success, recently launched a Kickstarter for its product, Connectify Dispatch.
Connectify CEO Alex Gizis said through a spokeswoman that the product is “roughly integrated” into its hotspot software, but the Kickstarter funds would allow the company to create a standalone product.

For a company that has taken funding from private investment firms in the past, why crowdfund?
With 17 days left to go, Connectify has raised nearly half its goal with pledges surpassing $21,000 out of its $50,000 goal.
Gizis, 39, grew up in Manhasset, N.Y. and attended the University of Pennsylvania. He now lives in Society Hill.
