What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

We don't know how we should go about increasing our sales volume. Should we search for a retailer to partner with or just concentrate on internet sales. We started selling the knee pads on Amazon and our own website www.KneeBees.com

We have one customer Micro Kickboard (famous scooters) and they sell some varieties of our knee pads on their website http://www.microkickboard.com/striped-knee-sleeves


About my venture

KneeBees Inc Started 2011

Dear Mentor,

We are a tiny company from New York, KneeBees, Inc (founded in 2011)

Inspired by a birth of my daughter, I invented knee pads for toddlers and children and just received a patent in the summer of 2015. (Patent number; US 9,066,544)

Our operations, fulfillment and customer support are very good.

We do not have any debt as I am a strong believer in not taking on debt until the business model is proven.

Countries of operation: United States of America
