Mango Mango are fruit preserves that are wildly popular among the crowds that attend the parties organized by these three go-getter founders. Finally they decided to make the preserves for retail sale, appropriately described as a party in a jar.
There are over 100 ways to use Mango Mango to liven up your menu. Spread it on bread or crackers, mix with cream cheese to make a dip, combine with vinegar and olive oil to make vinaigrettes and marinades, or invent your own!
Mango’ Mango Preserves can now be found in all Whole Foods in the Mid-Atlantic region and Specialty & Gourmet stores nationwide. Since then, the revenue for ‘Mango Mango’ soared to over a million dollars in sales.

Breathometer makes breathalyzer tests accessible for consumers by leveraging users’ smartphones. Easily plugging into any smartphone’s audio jack, Breathometer makes it easier than ever to gauge your blood alcohol content.
The user simply exhales onto the sensor and the results are displayed onscreen, much like using any other breathalyzer. Breathometer’s smartphone app also estimates how long until a user may be able to drive safely again, and can even call you a local cab if needed.
Breathometer was founded in 2012 by Charles Michael Yim, a serial entrepreneur who had earlier founded three startup companies including Chatterfly, a mobile loyalty platform for businesses that was acquired by Plum District.
The company was partly funded through preorders collected via an Indiegogo crowd-sourcing campaign, which ran until April 2013.
