Ben Kaufman

Founder, Quirky

Ben Kaufman—breaker, maker, founder and CEO of Quirky—makes invention accessible. At 18, he founded his first company, Mophie, and learned just how difficult it is to bring one single product to market. In 2009, Kaufman launched Quirky to break down the barriers to invention and allow creative people all over the world to invent together.

The ultimate goal is to build the 21st-century P&G, based on people who wouldn't otherwise have a voice.
