This month we are excited to host a retail focused company and a product that each and every one of us might be using this time next year!
Our presenter is Cool Woman, Kristen Miller of InMotion Albums. InMotion considers themselves the Tesla Model X for next generation pictures and videos within the billion-dollar photo book market. They have the world's first and only patented, interactive p ring, digital and video memory book, offering users a one-of-a-kind experience to relive their memories though images, sounds and videos. Users rave that engaging with an InMotion album is "pure joy"!
Her Business Challenge:
Kristen and her partner Lucas Miller will be presenting their product, channel strategy, and market vision for InMotion - with an eye and ear for feedback on fundraising and productization resources. They are looking for early stage funding from people who invest in consumer and digital consumer products. They are also needing to connect with experienced product managers who can help them produce the InMotion Album in Colorado (or at least domestically) during their early stages of market validation and distribution. Ideally they are looking for someone who understands both SaaS delivery models and the product and operational requirements to support them.
Please join us for an interesting and engaging discussion about retail channel product readiness and fundraising.
