East Stroudsburg, Pa. (BlackNews.com)—At the age where many kids decide to cut grass, rake leaves or shovel snow to make a few dollars, 10-year old Micaiah Brown along with his 12-year old brother Josiah Brown decided to start their own company. The idea to start came when other kids started offering them money for their new invention. The two kid entrepreneurs are now looking to raise the needed capital to cover the cost of manufacturing and marketing their new product.
It all started when they were playing in their basement and broke one of their toys. They figured out a new way to attach light to any sneaker to give it a cool illuminated look. When they went to their dad with this idea, he simply told them to register SneakerLights.com. To their surprise the name was available. Dad said, “I figured a name like sneakerlights.com would have already been used by someone else”. He also shared that putting detachable lights on sneakers was so much of a simple idea that maybe someone would have used the domain name already. The kids then used their own money to set up their new website, SneakerLights.com
