Jacob Rothman

I am one of the co-founders of Velong Industries, a cook-and-grilling tools factory, and Platform88. With over 500 workers and a growing design team, my Velong factory quickly became the source for innovative, well-made grilling products, producing for worldwide brands such as Weber, Cuisinart, Charbroil, and Kitchenaid. Through Platform88, a close network of experienced manufacturers, engineers, designers, retail professionals, and investors, I have helped countless startups make market, including Elevate, Luminaid, Hexagon, Shaveology, and Üllo.

Richard Smiedt

My career spans 30 years and six continents. I have developed a specialty in reimagining consumer and tech product categories – spotting hidden opportunities and leveraging design to capitalize on them. I have created multiple brands and built and sold millions of products and opened tens of thousands of retail doors. I have more than a dozen patents to my name and have earned multiple design and entrepreneurial awards. I bring the ability to innovate, disrupt and execute stories and concepts both online and in retail. Puzzle gives me the opportunity of taking everything I have learnt and the network I have built and sharing with others in a way that has never been done before.

“the cornerstone of all
of our projects is design

The only true way to be differentiating in any market is by uniqueness in design. Design of functionality, manufacturability, brand, material use, styling, distribution, and everything that increases a products chances of success.

And the key to manufacturing the design intent is close collaboration between design and engineering. Our organization is built on the fusion of design and engineering, minimizing development time for every project we take on.
