The idea

Overview

1. January 2010 and blizzard over Washington DC Today 23 year-old Jean Spencer wanted to take a look at her eMails on her iPhone - but that was not possible with her gloves. And she had only one choice:

Either quickly get rid of the warming overcoat - or lose all news.

Where there is a will, there is a way!

Overview

Because problem with normal gloves is: Touchpads react only to the electricity of human fingers. But gloves no longer flow to the touchpad.

Jean, however, thought: If people are able to invent iPhones, there must also be a possibility to use them with gloves. And she began to test different materials together with her mother Jennifer Spencer.

In Germany, they would have been laughed at

Overview

In Germany, the two Texans would probably have laughed: Because they had no experience in the textile industry. So traditional cross-border - but with a lot of entrepreneurial spirit: Mother Jennifer, 52, has a degree in economics and participated in numerous start-ups.

Daughter Jean has a bachelor's degree in journalism and worked before the invention of Agloves at the prestigious Wall Street Journal. And the two said: Silver is the material that best transports the fingers' electricity. Silver also acts like a natural thermoregulator.

From the idea to the market leadership

Overview

The Internet and the search engine optimization is the most important building block in the sales network, as I am told by Jean at the IFA. Whoever enters touchscreens Gloves or similar search terms automatically finds the Agloves on place 1 at Google.

Innovation by personality

Overview

Whether she is not afraid someone could steal the idea or rival her? Jean casually waves away: "We have registered a patent. Besides, our glove is the only one that can use all 10 fingers on the touchpad, not just two ... and does not it look stylish? "She asks me with mischievous laughter.

Exactly this shows that the success of a company also strongly depends on the entrepreneurial personality: Jean and Jennifer are simply sympathetic, cool, self-confident, active and courageous - and thus convince their customers, so the Agloves independent of large corporations to a success story could be.
