The William McShane Fund Story
Once upon a time, William McShane gave Buckyballs its start. He’s the guy who, with one click of the mouse, bought the very first set of Buckyballs and changed the course of our history. We like to think of Will as a pioneer of sorts, but he stands for more than that. He’s a supporter of innovation and ideas; the one who believed in something new before anyone else did. He’s the proverbial dollar bill hanging on a business wall.
THE WILLIAM MCSHANE FUND was created by Buckyballs and Brookstone to help other product start-ups get that coveted shot at success. We know long hours and dedication go into starting a business, but sometimes you just need someone to believe in you first.
The William McShane Fund is here to help.
Through the fund, Buckyballs and Brookstone will give one Kickstarter project the opportunity to launch its product nationwide and receive $25,000 in startup cash.
The public will have the chance to vote online for finalists selected by The William McShane Fund.
