Previous Thread: ZAM Grinder

Hello everyone! I like the new website, seems it was overdue.

Although I'm probably speaking to the same people, I just wanted to introduce myself and say a quick hello. My name is Zach and I'm the founder of ZAM Grinders - a portable cannabis grinder with a couple patent pending changes. Please take a look at my website and let me know if you have any questions! For those who have been following along...

I wanted to fill everyone in on the recent on-goings of ZAM Grinders. After my initial small order was well-liked, I had the obstacle of raising money for the next batch of inventory as well as IP legal fees. I got a nice Forbes article published: Forbes Article about ZAM Grinders, and from that I received some interest from individuals/angels/VC's who wanted to possibly invest. Unfortunately this was in the middle of Covid-19 and everything pretty much fell apart, again.

But one great company whom you've all heard of has taken an interest in the design and I'm set to close the deal this week. If I don't get things up and running, at least they will.

Honestly I'm just happy my design will be out there. Also with some additional funds from this deal and the email signups from the Forbes article, I'm confident I'll be in a position to finally order some inventory myself. Hurray!

Nice job Zach!
Very cool to get that type of exposure through Forbes.

Are you licensing the design or continuing to sell the grinder under the ZAM name?

Glad to hear you're still above water. I know times have been hard on all small businesses recently.

Earthling flora is... fascinating.
Grats, man! I'm so (selfishly) excited! I've wanted to buy a couple more of these in different colors!

Hello everyone!

Time for a little update. So that deal I thought was soon to be completed has taken a lot longer than I'd hoped. I know attorneys are useful, but damn are they expensive. Between paying an attorney to help navigate the business deal, and paying another attorney to simultaneously work on the next stage of the patent process, I've been struggling to make due.

But attorney payments have been handled, the next stage of the patent process is complete, and everything is looking good! So long as there are no curve-balls, I really think I'll be in a position to finally get up and running with an order placed by the end of August. (knock on wood)

I also want to thank FC for all the encouraging messages and support. I can't describe how awesome it is to make something different and then for people to not only want one, but also provide genuine feedback on how to make it better. I've received so much help from a lot of people on this forum, It's a great community, thank you.

Till next time,

- Zach
