Alden Kat – Co-Founder of MyKatio
Alden “Kat” Martinez has been a animal person since birth. His family would always tell him that he should grow up to be a veterinarian. He didn’t follow that path, but is still completely crazy about animals. Alden spent the past 2 years working with CAD Designers, product manufacturers, fulfillment centers, and packaging companies to bring his dream to life. His Katio and Dogio products are a needed addition to the massive $60B annual pet market. He launches in Spring 2015! Its a great interview about product development and how to launch a new idea!
