Young entrepreneurs in Broadview

Sarah and Annalise 11-year-old twins have launched  a new pet product that has culminated in a Kickstarter project. http://rjc3.co/ww Check out their site to find out more about Wise Walkers.

“We love our dogs but we don’t love carrying poop. Wise Walkers gets that smelly poop out of your hands, out of sight and out of mind.” Picking up (and carrying) dog poop is a daily fact of life for dog owners who walk their dogs.  A Wise Walker gives you an easy way to stash that nasty poop bag while you finish your walk — out of sight, out of mind, and out of your hands!  A simple solution to a crappy problem.

With the help of their dad Bob Crimmins they are on their way.

Some tidbits:

  • Seattle is at the epicenter of technology entrepreneurship.  Literally, one the top 3 cities on planet earth for starting up a company.
  • UP Global headquarters is right here in Seattle.  UP supports new entrepreneurs in over 100 countries
  • Bob has served as a mentor and advisor to several entrepreneurship programs (including a youth entrepreneurship program) and dozens of startup companies around Seattle. His mission is to help empower women and young girls to be successful in technology and entrepreneurship. He also launched Kickstarter project.
