Oct 4, 2007

by Vanessa Bertozzi handmade and vintage goods

Entrepreneur Magazine just wrote an article about Etsy’s founder Rob Kalin (better known to us here as Rokali).  If you go to right now (Oct 4, 2007), and wait for it…Rob pops up!

We’re happy about the article because it focuses on our mission to build a sustainable business and to foster the entrepreneurial spirit in an online community.

"After speaking with Rob Kalin, the founder of handmade products marketplace, it’s apparent that like any true entrepreneur, his company isn’t just a means to a paycheck. It’s a mission: A mission to change the way commerce works; a mission to promote sustainable products…"

Also, The Storque‘s got its first mention in the press (not counting blogs, of course) since launch, and we’re really pleased!

"The latest feature on Etsy, The Storque, is an online magazine written by members."

    Etsy has been mentioned in the press many, many times, and we are grateful. I was talking about the first mention of The Storque.

    Thanks for those links, though, imperfectalia...I hadn't realized that Etsy had made it into the press at all here in Germany.
