Blockful, Pensa and gMax all product shipping [Startup Roundup]

This week, we see startups that ship, at various stages in the process.

Who’s getting money?

If you have an idea for improving the environment in Greenpoint, you could get some money to do it from the New York State Attorney General’s Office. Funded by an oil spill settlement, applications are due Dec. 18, though if your organization is for-profit you’ll need a fiscal sponsor or you’ll need to serve as a nonprofit’s subcontractor.

Who’s making moves?

Artisanal food box purveyor, Blockful, has released the Brooklyn Booze Box, celebrating favorites in the borough’s handmade spirits. Unbox responsibly.

Serial inventors, Pensa, celebrated eight years in business and its new DIWire crowdfunding campaign last week.

The gMax 3D printer whose Kickstarter we covered has already delivered a couple completed printers. They put up a post detailing how far they have come to complete all orders. Also, the shop now has a kitten.

Who’s getting Buzz?
