For centuries, becoming an "inventor" has been a hard gig to crack. Complexities relating to financing, engineering, distribution, and legalities have stood in the way of brilliant people executing on their great ideas.
Quirky's founder and CEO, Ben Kaufman, aimed to fix the unbalanced idea-making process; since launching in 2009, Quirky has rapidly changed the way the world thinks about product development. They bring two brand new consumer products to market each week, by enabling a fluid conversation between a global community and Quirky's expert product design staff.
The world influences their business in real-time, and Quirky shares their revenue directly with the people who help them make successful decisions.
