Arto’s wife, Leslie, has a company called Hankybook – an eco-friendly company that brands itself “The Evolution of the Handkerchief.” It’s a pretty cool product (and has a pretty funny name). It’s essentially a “book” of handkerchief pages so you don’t have to worry about how to fold your handkerchief properly to reduce mess, and it’s washable so it replaces boxes and boxes of disposable tissue paper over its lifetime.
Anyway, last night it was featured on San Diego’s Pitchfest, and is a great chance for Leslie to gain some visibility and revenue, which she’ll need if she wants to beat me in a little side bet we’ve started about which of our startup companies can be the first to reach $40,000 in profits.
