Sometimes having a savvy investor behind you makes all of the difference in jump starting something big in your business or taking it to the next level of success. That is precisely why Pitch Investors Live is so excited to welcome Kevin Harrington, the original shark from Shark Tank, to their team. Kevin is the creator of the infomercial and pioneer of the As Seen on TV brand. He is also the co-founding board member of the Entrepreneur’s Organization. He has decades of experience and knows which brands to get behind. We were also very surprised at one feat that is monumental and bar none, as Kevin has created 20 companies that have generated $100 million plus each. When we spoke to Kevin, this is what he said about why he decided to team up with Pitch Investors Live.
Changing the Landscape of Bootstrapping
As an entrepreneur himself and original shark on Shark Tank, Kevin knows how difficult it can be to pitch your ideas to investors. He also knows that it takes money to make money. There are millions of brilliant ideas that never make it to market because they haven’t been funded. After all, Shark Tank only accepts a tiny percentage of projects needing funded. Pitch Investors Live is changing all of that. The team has created a platform where entrepreneurs and project teams can present to experts in front of an audience and connect with investors live.
“I am very excited to join the Pitch Investors Live team and have a part in revolutionizing the way that entrepreneurs and startups bootstrap their innovative ideas,” Kevin told us.
And investors don’t have to be tech savvy to use it! This platform makes it possible for so many more entrepreneurs to get out there. From the small side hustle to big business, it will work for everyone.
Pitching gone Mobile
Kevin knows a great idea when he sees it. He has helped entrepreneurs and innovative business leaders get their ideas off the ground and turn their dreams into a reality for more than 30 years. He knows what people want, and a big part of what people want today is convenience. Technology advances are creating the ability to get whatever you need at the touch of a button. And why not? With the introduction of tokens based on blockchain technology, the options are limitless. And now, anyone in the world will have the ability to go after funding for their brilliant ideas or invest in business ideas on the go. Pitch Investors Live has created a platform that allows entrepreneurs to do live pitches within a mobile app. Investors can literally fund projects from their couch or on vacation.
“One of my favorite parts of Pitch Investors Live is that I can take pitches from anywhere in the world, at any given time, from a variety of startups, directly from my cell phone.”
Blockchain Disrupting the World
Savvy investors like Kevin get behind projects that will be utilized for years to come. Blockchain is the future. The new and exciting technology has the potential to disrupt almost every industry – in a good way. Some industries are already feeling the affect. From banking to real estate to the medical industry, the world is about to be revolutionized. Many of the applications of blockchain have yet to be discovered, and that is why Kevin is so excited to get involved at this early stage when he can make the most impact. “We are in the early stages of what blockchain will contribute to changing the entrepreneurial landscape. Pitch Investors Live is at the forefront of the possibilities in this new space.”
Pitch Investors utilizes blockchain technology to make it simple for either the investor or the live audience to buy tokens from the entrepreneurs presenting using smart contracts. This has never previously been possible..
With decades of experience and success behind him, Kevin Harrington will be an invaluable asset to the Pitch Investors Live team. He knows what to look for in potential investments, and Pitch Investors Live fits the bill. His background and expertise as both entrepreneur and investor make Kevin the perfect match. “Pitch Investors Live is the most substantial platform to have come out to help entrepreneurs that would have never been able to go through traditional funding route.”
