Ben Kaufman // QuirkyBen dropped out of college because, well, he was smart enough to go
from 0 to 60 and get down to business right away...which he first did
by condomizing iPods over at mophie. But then he sold mophie and kicked
it kluster style, giving mophiesque decision-making power to the people
for anything at all (which he still does). And partnered up to start 27
threats on the PR front (which he still does). But with ADD sitting on
his shoulder like a pirate's parrot, obviously 2 concurrent businesses
weren't enough - so he started quirky (which is why we're all gathered
here today). He works so hard he sleeps like a grandpa (8pm to 6am),
but with our guidance and care we're starting to make him into the
22-year-old we all know he can be.
MEET at the APARTMENT
Meet at the Apartment is a two-story, 2,500 square-foot,
highly stylized open loft in the Soho district of New York City.
Fully engineered for creative thought to flourish, Meet has been
intuitively outfitted with idea-generating essentials: a library stocked
with art, design and photography reference books; a kitchen pantry
filled with goodies; and breakout rooms that could double as private
rooms in the trendiest NY clubs.
