Quirky Appoints New President, Is Primed for Relaunch via Twitter.

Q Holdings LLC, the private company which acquired Quirky in 2015 after it filed for bankruptcy, has been stealthily rebuilding the once beloved invention platform, and have announced the appointment of Gina Waldhorn as President. This hiring is the first public signal of what’s to come for the invention platform that during its heyday employed over two hundred people and raised over $180 million, but was forced to shut its doors due to an unsustainable business model.

See pervious coverage, no word if Ben Kaufman is coming back in the press release, he is currently at BuzzFeed product labs.

    The pr blurb about the new president of quirky should not fail to list the criticisms of her former employer on behalf of Nestle:

    Sorry, but any time I see Nestle mentioned for the last 30+ years, I think of the bullshit 3rd world marketing to poor women telling them to stop breastfeeding and buy formula. Anyone who would work on behalf of Nestle is not someone I want to associate with.
