Last Friday Tim Jahn founder of Beyond The Pedway came over to conduct an interview about Inventables. Tim is passionate about discovering and interviewing creative companies in Chicago to bring them out in to the public eye. He brought a few cameras to get different angles and then took a tour of our office. In a few weeks he is going to launch the interview live on the BTP site. One cool thing is that in each interview a song from a local Chicago band is featured during the intro and credits. We can't wait to hear which band will be selected for Inventables.
One of our motivations for launching the new Inventables Marketplace was to end cold calls. In our view cold calls are ruining the world. We hope our new website puts an end to cold calls. The reason we think cold calls are bad is they interrupt productive work. Most engineers that work in product development wish they had more time to work on designing their product. They often find themselves in back to back to back meetings and when they finally get back to their desk the phone starts ringing. We hope that Inventables Marketplace will be so effective at connecting vendors with new customers they will spend time educating the world about their products by creating and updating product profiles like this one for Overmolding with Plasma Treatment rather than cold calling prospective customers and interrupting their work.
