Startup inventor Brooke Martin featured on Fox, pushes her over Kickstarter goal

Getting her face on Fox Business News on Monday morning helped push Chris and Brooke Martin to exceed their Kickstarter goal for their Spokane startup company, iCPooch.

The 14-year-old Brooke was featured last year in a Spokesman Review article about iCPooch, her technology device to interact with a dog and reward the dog with a treat.

Fox Business News featured her this morning on its show, and nicely enough, the press attention pushed ICPooch over the $20,000 target of the campaign.

The money will help the company start moving forward with design plans for the device, which could be sold in the $145 range.
