In Episode 25 of the StartUp Burgh podcast, I sit down with Elijah Wiegmann of Spruce, a pet products company launching this year with an innovative pet bed. Elijah is a local product designer who has been around the startup scene in Pittsburgh for the better part of the last decade. He forged out on his own and runs a design studio helping clients bring their product ideas to life.
It wasn't long, though, before Elijah and his co-founders had an idea of their own that they wanted to pour their time and energy into. Thus, Spruce was born. A true passion project, Spruce's flagship product is the Spruce Pet Bed that has turned heads (and tails!) wherever it goes.
Have a listen as Elijah and I talk Pittsburgh, product design, and pups!
