Building a toward a growing community of designers and idea makers, Coogobox by founder Ken Chen from Vancouver aims to help product designers bring their concepts in to reality. In concept the idea is simple, users/designers upload their concepts for the community to vote on, successfully polled products are then fine tuned by the Coogobox team, they then help manufacture and sell the product, thus bringing what could be into the hands of customers globally.
If you’re a designer with a product idea that you think will be useful or brilliant for us all to have but don’t have the funds or support to deliver it, that’s when Coogobox comes in. Allowing designers to focus on what they do best, DESIGN, Coogobox wants to take care of everything else.
Once you share your 3D product designs the entire community, all users of the site are available to judge and vote on the ideas. The Coogobox team then evaluates each idea for marketability and sales to ensure that every aspect of a product is successful. If necessary adjustments are made to the design before testing and manufacturing is completed. Products that pass through the Coogobox funnel then are sold online, at trade shows, in various social platforms and at retail shops to extend the reach of a product.
