Joeri & Anneke Franck: Residing in Mortsel, Antwerp, BELGIUM, Joeri and his wife, Anneke, run a small beauty and garment import company. One day, while working with one of their products, Joeri and Anneke accidentally discovered that the product could serve an entirely new purpose and solved a common consumer problem. While researching ways to improve upon the idea, the couple learned of Edison Nation and submitted their idea.

Melanie Climo: After growing tired of the New Hampshire cold, Melanie and her family relocated to sunny Florida, where Melanie stays home with her two boys. One day while loading the dishwasher, Melanie saw a segment on TV featuring an Edison Nation inventor who had submitted an idea that is now on store shelves. Not long after, Melanie was working on a project outdoors and was becoming increasingly frustrated. Realizing she’d had the same problem several times before, she thought about all the wacky ways she’d worked around it in the past and thought, “Why don’t I make something that does that?” Melanie then remembered the TV segment and submitted her idea to Edison Nation.
