“With Infento we empower families to be makers instead of consumers. Our multi-functional and adjustable parts make our kit a truly durable and sustainable concept. You only need one kit for their whole childhood. Kickstarter is the perfect place to launch because it hosts a community of people that, just like us, value creativity, innovation and education,” says Spencer Rutting, co-founder of Infento.
The starting point of Infento goes back to 2010. Co-founder Spencer is a volunteer for a youth organization and there he came up with the idea to organize a race for kids with rides they’ve helped to build. The kids loved building real stuff and they were really creative with the material that was available. Now what would be possible with truly multi-functional and multi-adjustable parts? Just like Lego and Meccano. But then life size. Infento started with the development of an education kit especially designed for schools, which is now being sold worldwide. The positive feedback from schools, parents and children lead to the decision to develop a product specially designed for the consumer market. After two years of development this new kit is now ready to go to market. Infento consists of a team of 7 people and is located in Amsterdam and Seattle.
