Some thoughts from the interview
“We started in 2009 selling ink cartridges, a very competitive market of course but the one thing people are always going to need is more ink and therefore we felt that there was an opportunity there that if we could bring a better service we could get a portion of the market.”
“We started with 2 lines of ink cartridges and we are now selling 100s if not 1000s of ink cartridges.”
