It started with the sketch of an idea, the concept to turn a conductive ink developed in a university research lab into a consumer ready product to be used by makers, educators, and the eternally curious.
Co-founders Brett and Analisa worked tirelessly during PhD research to develop and refine a conductive ink that would flow easily from a ball point pen giving users the power of electricity without cumbersome wires that needed to be soldered.
In fall of 2013, when the Circuit Scribe pen was ready, they launched a Kickstarter campaign and hoped for the best. In a little over a month the goal of $85,000 was blasted out of the water and the campaign was funded at $674,425 by 12,277 backers.
From there they knew Circuit Scribe was more than just a dream, it was a product that had lit up the imagination of tens of thousands of people. The team hit the ground running in 2014, first spinning off from the printed electronics company Electroninks Inc., then refining their product designs, developing affordable and large scale production capabilities, shipping to all of their backers and moving to Austin, TX. Once settled in Texas, they hired Zack to manage all fulfillment, developed a website and started shipping products to customers.
