Check out the interview with our founder, Dr. Julia Fedorenko Bitton, in “Makers Who Made It: 100 Stories of Starting a Business,” a free ebook recently published by The Grommet.
After seven years of helping entrepreneurs launch undiscovered products to the mass market, the ebook brings together The Grommet’s co-founders CEO Jules Pieri and Chief Discovery Officer Joanne Domeniconi and interviews with 100 makers, inventors, and entrepreneurs whose products have been featured on the website.
In “Makers Who Made It,” members of The Grommet’s community share their wisdom and insights to help inspire others. It’s an honest, revealing collection of advice, reality checks, what to expect, and what you should (and shouldn’t) sweat when starting a small business.
The ebook will help readers understand how to develop an idea for a new consumer product, prototype it, manufacture it, launch it, promote it, and build a sustainable and thriving business.
Since its creation in 2008, The Grommet has screened more than 60,000 products, and we are proud that our Bug Stick and Bug Bar organic mosquito and tick repellents are among the only 2,000 products — or 3 percent of all those evaluated — to be launched on the site.
The book (as ePub and pdf files) is currently available at http://thegrommet.com/press/makers-who-made-ebook and will be available in ebook stores soon.
