Making Invention Accessible
Invested in 2015;
Quirky is a new type of socially developed product company founded with the vision of making invention accessible.
Quirky’s community members, inventors and product “influencers,” ultimately share its financial success with them. Headquartered in New York City, Quirky brings game-changing products to the marketplace through interaction between its active online global community and Quirky’s brand partners, bringing to life ideas from their earliest stages to store shelves.
Any of Quirky’s community members can become an inventor or influencer by submitting ideas. Inventors who submit ideas that are then created and influencers who contribute to those ideas share in royalties based on product sales.
The company solicits ideas for new products via Quirky.com and its iPhone app. Once an idea is submitted, the Quirky community vets it, praises it, critiques it, and votes for their favorites.
A prospective inventor can submit an idea to Quirky, and there is no limit on the number of invention ideas that a person can submit. When determining which products to make, Quirky considers factors such as uniqueness, manufacturing complexity, and intellectual property rights, yet they are committed to working on ideas both big and small that make life better.
