084: Building an eCommerce Business from Scratch with Kiran Ravindra

Kiran Ravindra and I had a great conversation about how he was able to break into the cell phone case and accessories market with the unique idea of manufacturing and selling carbon fiber cell phone cases and other accessories.

Growing up Kiran was always entrepreneurial. That entrepreneurial spirit led him to create his current business. Seeing exotic cars and high-end products using carbon fiber he fell in love with the look and feel of the material. He wanted to buy a carbon fiber cell phone case for his iPhone but couldn’t find anyone selling them. This is when he got the idea to fill this void in the market with his own line of carbon fiber cell phone cases and other carbon fiber accessories. This led to the birth of his company Carbon Trim Solutions.

What we discussed:

  • The problems he faced early on that cause major setbacks for his business
  • How he tested the market to ensure people wanted what he was going to produce
  • How he found a manufacturer he could trust
  • How he markets and distributes his products
