Ben Kaufman
Founder and CEO, 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, Ben launched Quirky to break down the barriers to invention and allow creative people all over the world to invent together. He’s helped hundreds of everyday inventors bring their product ideas to life and forged partnerships with the world’s largest retailers to sell those products. Today, Ben and Quirky continue to redefine the way the world thinks about product development and invention.
