Young Entrepreneur Series – Mophie

October 27, 2011

In 2006, Ben Kaufman started Mophie when he was just 18 years old. Mophie makes cases, splitters, arm bands and clips for the iPod. Kaufman’s goal is to turn Mophie into a community-based, product-development company that will solicit ideas for all kinds of new products — not just iPod add-ons — from a 50,000 member online user base.

He’s got $2 million in venture capital and a former top exec from Burton Snowboard on board to help him do it. Revenue is expected to hit $5 million this year. He was named number 1 on Inc.com’s top 30 entrepreneurs under 30 for his innovation.

A fantastic venture in our opinion! Have a great idea for a business of your own? Enter the Grow Your Own Business Challenge today.
