Frank combined a prototype, creativity and a entrepreneurship class project and turned them into a company. The idea took off after Frank and his classmate/co-founder launched a $4,000 Kickstarter campaign to fund product development. The result: 7,978 backers and $424 314 to kick Wipebook into overdrive! The team then had the opportunity to pitch on Dragon’s Den where they were offered a deal from Arlene Dickinson for 300,000$. Wipebook now sells its product in 68 countries around the world and can be found in Staples and Wallmart retail stores across Canada.
