An eleven year old named Nathan had a problem. While doing his math homework, he needed to measure something but couldn’t find a ruler. He looked down at the pencil in his hand and inspiration hit. Why not combine a pencil with a ruler?
Nathan found a manufacturer, but they require at least a minimum order of 1000 pencils, and that’s more money he has in his piggy bank. What’s an entrepreneur with a great idea and not enough capital to do?
Post his project to Kickstarter, of course!
Nathan only needed $350 to fund his business, but so far, with twenty three days to go, he’s already raised almost $2500!
