Design Vs. Function: How Should You Start Prototyping?

In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner Bolanile Maté of Be Better Paris meets with two skateboard companies that take very different approaches to business and manufacturing.

When it comes to prototyping, design and function are the two key components. Minka Skateboards prioritizes design over function. Co-founder Elodie Michaud started her career as a textile designer, and she creates beautifully detailed boards with her co-founder, Kévin Rabiller.

Skateboard company Baise-en-ville Skateboards puts function before design. Co-founders Laurent Pierre and Anne Isimat-Mirin have engineered modern technical structures to their boards, making them easy to carry and adaptable to a variety of environments.
