PUMA Pitch Presentation: Pongle

  1. 1. The following Pitch Presentation is based on this Presentation Underlying Message Architecture
  2. 2. My name is Cody. I have a product idea that I think would disrupt the Table Tennis Industry. In order to launch my idea, I need to raise capital
  3. 3. There are 5 different types of Ping-Pong players. Which type best describes you? I consider myself to be a ‘Social’ Ping-Pong player.
  4. 4. The problem is that there is limited opportunities for casual players to participate in table tennis.
  5. 5. Clubs & competitions tend to attract Amateurs & Pros… …but casual players are not motivated by traditional participation models.
  6. 6. Even if you do have an opportunity to play, its only fun when you play someone of a similar talent level… …and new participation models do not achieve significant scale.
  7. 7. My vision is to create unlimited opportunities to Participate for all casual players.
  8. 8. 1. 2. Todays software technologies enable the convergence of Social, Mobile & Local. Where these 3 overlap is where opportunities can be created. In 2006, the Wii Console brought But in 2013, the the physical realm (P) into the virtual (V) realm is being virtual (V). As a result, A Wii brought into the player can physically play table physical realm (P) thank s tennis in a virtual world. to advancements in with hardware technologies.
  9. 9. By combining todays software and hardware technologies the first ever ‘player-centric’ participation model is possible. With a player-centric model, unlimited opportunities for casual players to participateare possible.
  10. 10. How do we uniquely package the existing software and hardware Technologies in order to achieve the player-centric model? Integrate a smartphone directly into the racket. Hack a Wii controller ; use Bluetooth to Communicate to a smartphone Create a small, universally attachable device; use Bluetooth to communicate to a smartphone, smart watch or other Bluetooth enabled device.
  11. 11. Being able to discover others of equal skill is critical to creating unlimited opportunities to participate. Establishing a ranking allows skill to be measured; keeping score enables a ranking. If we just made an app, trying to play while entering scoring info into the phone would be disruptive to the game. #friction With a small, universally attachable device the game can take place without interruption. #LittleToNoFriction
  12. 12. I call my product idea, the Pongle. Because, like a dongle, the Pongle adds functionality to the object it attaches to, in this case the racket. In order to get this product off the ground, I need money: My state will give me a $50,000 prototyping grant if I can raise $103,000 from an investor. I have $12,000 to invest.
  13. 13. Oh by the way, the Pongle will also help: Social Table Tennis Clubs… National Governing Bodies… Brand owners… …enhance patron experience …increase participation pool, enhance retention & close the gap between casual and formal players. …deliver highly targeted advertising messages
  14. 14. I am prepared to accept investment dollars: I have established an entity: Web of Things Co. My legal team drafted the company by-laws to be partial to outside investment.
  15. 15. This Pitch Presentation was based on the following Presentation Underlying Message Architecture.
