On Dragon's Den (also known as Shark Tank):
Our Kickstarter video:
We love the outdoors, having drinks with our friends, and spending time with family. Our friends describe us as fun and lively people who always see the bright side of life. Plain and simple: WE LOVE BEER. As beer connoisseurs, we wanted to be able to test beers all the time, and we wanted you to join in too. We created Trinken so that no matter if you are at a beach, kids baseball games, or just wanting to go for a walk, you can enjoy one of life's greatest gifts: beer (or anything else that comes in a can).
Trinken Lids are an innovative redesign of the standard coffee lid, built on the idea that adults should be able to enjoy a beverage of choice wherever and whenever. We exist because all of you love our product! As soon as we thought of Trinken Lids we went to work, and after 4 months of learning AutoCAD we had a 3D printed lid in hand and were prepared to dive deep into marketing. We contacted every website, newspaper, and person that would listen! In August of 2015, we launched a Kickstarter with the initial support of friends, family and new friends from the Kickstarter Community and The Chive. We hit our target within 12 days, and after 30 days on Kickstarter, we were 225% funded. Now, the product is in the final production phase, redesigned, and is ready to get into the hands of the Trinken supporters.
A couple of awesome websites that helped us spread the word early on.
