  • The top Boston Kickstarters of 2014

    BostInno - 12/09/2014

    We picked the CoffeeBar for a spot on this list before its Kickstarter campaign was even over. We first interviewed the creators of the coffee-infused energy and breakfast bar in September, barely a week after the campaign had launched. At the time, CoffeeBar had yet to raise $25,000. By the time it ended on Nov. 6, the total amount raised was $44,109, more than four times the initial $10,000 goal.

    Northeastern University students Ali Kothari and Johnny Fayad started their company, New Grounds Food, out of their freshman dorm room. On the Kickstarter page, Kothari and Fayad wrote, “We were tired of waking up for our 8am financial accounting class without having time for breakfast or coffee. We wanted a simple healthy way to get energy on the go, without sacrificing nutrition.”
