Alumni Story: From Idea to Kickstarter Sensation
Many people have creative product ideas, but don’t know how to turn them into a reality. That rang true for Chris Place (Product Management, Hong Kong) who wanted to solve a common problem: People aspire to bring lunch to work, but often fail. He turned to GA’s Product Management course in Hong Kong to give him the tools to create and launch Prepd, a sleek lunchbox and companion app that aims to make meal prep fun.
“GA helped me understand marketing and creative storytelling,” Place said. “How can I tie together my product with compelling marketing and bring my product to launch?” After the course, he leveraged his learnings to launch a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign that raised $1.4 million to make Prepd a reality. “We never expected this to get this big,” Place says.
