Trevor and Tyler are two young entrepreneurs from Gainsville, Florida. In 2013, they came up with an invention that could rapidly cool beer, that they call SpinChill. Through 3D Printing they managed to refine their product to chill beer/soda cans, wine, and beer bottles. This inspired them to see how far they could go with this and turn it into business. To help do this, they used Kickstarter to launch SpinChill. Aiming for $10,000, they surpassed this goal and hit $40,000 in 30 days! Now, heading into 2014, they continue to work and expand their business while having fun!.
