Capstone – Project

We’re launching a new website – IMDb meets Linkedin meets Bumble

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

This project will:
1. Showcase toy and game inventors like their counterparts in music, film, literary, culinary, etc. worlds. If you sell a million records, you are on the cover of Rolling Stone, a million books, the NY Bestseller List. But if you’ve sold over 100 million toys or games like Jenga, no one has heard of you… and Leslie Scott is awesome! We want to tell the stories and connect consumers to toy and game inventors.
2. Toy/game Industry need an easy way to connect with one another. Let’s say you are a Product Acquisition Exec at Mattel and you are traveling to London and would like a list of inventors there who specialize in electronic plush. Another example is that you loved the Dads Play with Barbie campaign and want to find the pr company that put it together.
