Ben Kaufman started his first company at 14 years old. BKMEDIA was a web design/video production company with clients such as Maybelline, L’Oreal, footlocker and many more. At 18 years old, Ben took an idea for an iPod accessory and founded mophie in 2005. He designed and launched mophie’s first product while still attending High School in Long Island, NY. mophie was successfully acquired in August of 2007, allowing Ben to focus on the development of Kluster.
Ben drives sales, marketing, and corporate (if you can call it that) culture (if you can call it that). In 2007, Ben was recently selected as Inc. Magazine's #1 entrepreneur in the 30 under 30 category.
Along with kluster, Ben is currently birthing two new babies... Quirky, a social product development company, and 27 threats, a PR firm representing 27 entrepreneurs under the age of 27.
He is proud and honored to be a college-dropout holding a high school diploma from Portledge School.
