Quirky Mashes Crowds for a $50M Win - CBS Sunday Morning [video] | Innovative Marketing and Crowdfunding | Scoop.it

The online community provides R&D necessary to bring new ideas to the marketplace.

Marty Note
At CrowdFunde, where we are mashing up the highly viral and social content contained in crowdfunding engines such as Kickstarter and Indiegogo, we see Quirky as a hybrid. Quirky crowdsources and crowdfunds to limit their merchandising liability, lower costs and create support tribes before a product even comes to market.

If that sounds like the future of retailing we agree. The future of retailing is QUIRKY.
