Ben Kaufman, founder of Mophie, a maker of iPod accessories and one of Small Dog Electronics prime suppliers, was featured on NPR’s Marketplace on Monday, September 25th. Ben was one of several students profiled in a story detailing a new hands-on approach to business education. Ben is a sophomore participating in the BYOBiz program at Champlain College, in Burlington, VT. Students in the program get special support when they bring an existing business with them to school or launch one while enrolled. The report samples the ventures and experiences of several students enrolled in the program at Champlain.

Marketplace’s Steve Tripoli posted the report at

Ben and Mophie will be helping us launch our new Flagship store in Burlington this October with some great product giveaways. Congratulations and thanks to Ben!
