Back to Meet the Makers

Limberboard and the Future of Flexible Programmable Hardware

Post-Crowdfunding Conundrum: Where Do We Go From Here?

Presenter

Imagine you're an inventor. After blood, sweat and tears, you have launched your new product online and successfully crowdfunded your way to success. Now what? Crowdfunding can only take a new product so far. How companies will scale and deliver on their promise is an issue all too often overlooked by bright eyed, bushy-tailed entrepreneurs who have just hit a homerun in their campaign. This is where products can fall flat and where The Grommet can help avoid that very real possibility. They can pick up where crowdfunding left off and ensure long term success through supercharged amplification of the story behind the product.


Purina ONE

Exhibit

Visitors to the Purina ONE booth at Maker Faire will have the opportunity to create and invent their own do-it-yourself (DIY) puzzle feeder projects to help enrich the feeding experiences of their cats; gather inspiration from the DIY wall u2013 a gallery of projects created from Purina ONE's cat community; and interact with a fun and shareable area at the booth. What you feed your cat is just as important as HOW you feed your cat. Cats are designed to hunt for their food, and while domestic cats have it much easier they still benefit from the stimulation that comes from the hunt. Incorporating a puzzle feeder in addition to a bowl encourages your cat to work for her food, stimulating her mind and body and helping her live her True Nature.
