Kickstarter Digs 24-Year-Old Entrepreneur's Ergonomic Shovel Design

Crowd funding site helps Stephen Walden raise nearly 30% of his $60,000 goal in first week


Manhattan Beach, CA -- (SBWire) -- 09/18/2013 --A 24-year-old California entrepreneur has met nearly thirty percent of his fundraising goal on in just the first week of his 45-day campaign on the crowd funding site.

Stephen Walden, a 2012 graduate of Loyola Marymount University, aims to raise $60,000 before October 20, 2013 to fund the first production run of ergonomically designed flat head, spade and show shovels manufactured by his new company, Bosse Tools.

Returning from the California Home & Garden Show where he demonstrated the use of the ergonomic shovel designs, Walden noted, "It's funny when people look at this shovel and they are instantly intrigued - that's why I believe our Kickstarter has taken off.”

Inspired by the work ethic instilled by his parents, Walden started building his new company while still studying for his Masters in Business Administration at Loyola Marymount University. By the time he had earned his MBA, he had already brainstormed the new shovel designs and won several business model competitions in California and beyond.

“Most of my classmates were busy looking for jobs as graduation approached,” says Walden. “I was busy looking for manufacturers and putting together a business plan for my own company.”

And in spite of increasing globalization in manufacturing, the young entrepreneur vowed that he would make his shovels in the United States. “American made products were the pride of our nation in the past, so bringing back manufacturing jobs to America is really exciting,” says Walden. The company’s Kickstarter page proclaims, “At Bosse Tools, we are committed to being Made in America…By manufacturing and assembling our tools right here on our own soil, we feel a deep sense of patriotism. This ultimately adds a level of unmatched quality to our products, and of course, a deep sense of pride as well.”
