053  FROM INVENTOR TO ENTREPRENEUR

Stuart Anderson is the co-inventor of the Flow™ Hive, a unique Australian product that makes harvesting honey as simple as turning a tap. Flow™ Hive has established itself as a true Australian innovator, developing the most significant advance in beekeeping in over 150 years and running one of the most successful crowdfunding campaigns to date.

Going from nothing to US$12.2 million in pre-orders in just a few weeks is a unique scenario, and one which inspired inventive solutions from Stuart and his son Cedar who experimented for over 10 years to develop the product.

 

The pair, who knew barely anything about mass production or exporting, found themselves having to deal with the complexity of the US state by state Nexus system, VAT, duties and many pitfalls of international commerce.

With manufacturing operations now in Oregon, Portland and Brisbane, Australia and deliveries on their way to more than 140 countries in every corner of the globe, Stuarts story of innovation in design and business, while not without its challenges, will inspire all.
