#2: Emma Rose Cohen, founder of Final Straw:

We chatted with with Emma, founder of Final Straw ($0/month). In our interview, Emma says:

FinalStraw was born after a voracious Amazon search for a reusable, travel-friendly straw. There was nothing. Zip. Zilch. Nada. We saw the huge gap in the market for fun, innovative items that replace single-use plastic straws. So, we decided to go for it.

Additionally:

When we launched the Kickstarter campaign, we had a goal of $12,500. In the first 48 hours, we raised over $200,000. By the end of the month we had raised $1.89 million. Our excitement quickly turned to dread—we had 5 months to design, manufacture and deliver 100,000 straws.

Further:

It’s so important to look at whatever you’re doing as an opportunity to improve, because you’re going to fail many times. A piece of advice? Dive right in. The Internet is an abundant resource with just about every answer under the sun.
