Take a Kitables survey!

Have you ever seen an awesome project you wanted to do and then looked at the parts list and just thought “NOPE!”

Our friends at one of our favorite local start-ups, Kitables are trying to solve that problem by providing kits for projects you love right to your door. No more wasting time and money sourcing parts, thank goodness, that stuff takes for-ev-er and can be cray expensive.

But they need our help…

They are trying to make their products better for makers and would greatly appreciate it if you took a minute of your time to fill out this quick 9 question survey!

If you do you will be entered to win a Kitables Kit! (we’ve taken the survey 43 times already… just kidding, they won’t let us.)

Also if you would like to reach out to them directly with questions, suggestions, or just want to say hi email them at info@kitables.co

Got Law? If You’re an Entrepreneur, Talk to Modus

Law is a Rube Goldberg machine, designed to do seemingly simple tasks in the most complex and inefficient ways imaginable. This can be especially frustrating for entrepreneurs. You want to draw up your founding papers, write a contract, protect or divvy up intellectual property? It seems like it’s going to take 52 steps filled with fans blowing beach balls across ramps, which trips a mousetrap, which launches a paper airplane, which frightens a cat, which somehow magically means that your legal ducks are in a row.

That is, unless you head into the Spruce Street office for a chat with the people at Modus Law.
