Things are getting exciting for the TaTaTopper and Marilyn & Michelle. We entered a StartUp Next competition and won! What an honor to compete against so many amazing start ups. We know this is only the beginning of more hard work, but we learned a lot and met some wonderful people along the way. We also started a Crowdfunding campaign at www.indiegogo.com/projects/tatatopper. It runs through December 3rd and we are trying to raise $20,000.00 to help with the production costs of our TaTa Toppers. So far we have raised over $11,000.00 and we are thrilled that so many people are supporting us and motivating us to keep working hard and get our product out to women who would benefit.
Shortly before we won the StartUp Next competition a local online newspaper called Richmond BizSense contacted us and included us in an article at http://www.richmondbizsense.com/2014/11/16/woodworkers-kick-start-speaker-brand-online/ It was thrilling and we are hopeful it is one more way for people to find out about our product.
Not only is Stepping Stones carrying our product here in Richmond, but we were also contacted by an online breast cancer store called CureDiva. They will be selling the TaTaTopper very soon at http://www.curediva.com. A couple other companies are interested as well and we will be meeting with them soon. In March we will be attending a trade show with retailers across the country. That is something to look forward to.
As we continue to move forward, we are ever mindful that we must do well in order to do good. Hopefully we will be bringing some comfort to women who need it very soon.
