Founder & CEO
Ben is the 25-year-old founder and CEO of Quirky. His entrepreneurial journey started during his senior year of high school with a second mortgage on his parents’ house and the founding of an iPod accessory company called mophie. After mophie won “Best of Show” at MacWorld 2006, Ben discovered his passion for involving people in the development of new consumer products. When mophie was acquired in 2007, Ben focused his efforts on bringing his idea of ‘social product development’ to the next level. After two years of research and development on the unique technology platform, Ben publicly launched Quirky in June of 2009. A passionate and opinionated speaker, Ben talks Quirky, products and design to audiences around the world. In 2007, Inc Magazine named Ben the top entrepreneur in the country under the age of 30. He was 20 at the time. Other than participating in the development of awesome new products, Ben’s favorite things include his niece Lily, Jay-Z, cool kicks and black t-shirts.
