Turning your idea into a business with Kickstarter and Ecommerce

Presenter

I'm a 16 year old high student and I designed a 3D printed watch cover. I launched a Kickstarter crowd funding project to raise money to buy my own 3D printer. My project raised $10,000 in 30 days from backers in 25 countries. After the project, I turned my idea into my own ecommerce business. Along the way, I learned a lot about marketing, product design and testing, customer service, and e-commerce tools - in addition to a lot about small batch manufacturing with 3D printers. As a high school student, I can help other young makers learn how to take an idea and turn it into a business. My kickstarter project: http://kck.st/11yXf98
