Strain-ger than Fiction

BY RYANN AOUKAR
@ VOL 16 ON AUG 06, 2015

"I was in China, I was alone. I said 'How can I do it? How can I make it? I have 10 days in my hotel. Lets do something!'"

In Strain-ger than Fiction from PechaKucha Night Knoxville Vol. 16, Ryann Aoukar summarizes the process of designing a product, prototyping it, marketing it, having it picked up by the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, failing to bring the product to the mass market, failing on Kickstarter, relaunching the product after a year, finally getting it made, getting it stolen 3 times in less than a month, getting featured with the founder of Alibaba in the Globe and Mail, and selling it in 32 countries around the world. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, September 7th, 2016.
