Interview With Pebble Founder Eric Migicovsky, A 25-Year Old Behind Kickstarter’s Largest 8 Million Dollar Campaign

Shira Lazar of What’s Trending talked with Eric Migicovsky, the 25 years old creator of the Pebble Bluetooth watch campaign, a Kickstarter project that’s raised nearly $9 million. Eric talked with Shira about how Kickstarter gave them an opportunity, making something people want and how awesome the Pebble watch is.

What made you realize that the Pebble watch would be something people want?
“At the end of the day….make something people want. Before we launched our Kickstarter, we actually emailed the product to all my friends, my parents, my relatives and they all really like what we were making, so we had a pretty good feeling.”

What advantage did going on Kickstarter give you?
“Kickstarter is really cool because basically you can chat with the community, talk directly to the customer and find out what they want, what they are thinking, and impress them.”
