iCPooch and Wondercide
Michelle Fern welcomes 13 year old Brooke Martin, inventor and spokesperson of iCPooch, a device which allows you to video chat with your dog and deliver a treat from anywhere! iCPooch was born as a result of an 8th grade school project and a highly motivated 12 year old girl at an intense 54 hour event called Startup Weekend Spokane, held in September of 2012 at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington. Startup Weekend is a global phenomena held in over 65 countries around the world that encourage and support entrepreneur’s efforts to create new companies. On Friday evening, Brooke Martin, a 12 year old entrepreneur presented an innovative idea in the one minute pitch time allowed to all participants, called iCPooch. One of forty presenters (thirty-nine adults & one twelve year old), Brooke quickly won the hearts of those in attendance, receiving more votes than any other presenter.
In the second segment Michelle chats with Stephanie Boone, founder and CEO of Wondercide.
