2. Scott McGregor, Founder and CEO of SoundFit


“What if your earbuds fit your ears as well as custom fit orthotics and shoes fit your feet.”

Bio:

“15 years ago I helped change the world by co-inventing Web Conferencing, enabling people to and interactively present to audiences around the globe with everyone all on the same page.

I am now about to change the way the world listens -- through custom fit earpieces, manufactured in stores, while you wait. Ear buds that hurt, fall out, and let too much ambient noise in will soon be as quaint as one size fits all shoes.”

Introduction for product:

Everyone knows that earbuds, hurt, fall out and have poor sound quality. But did you know that they are making you deaf too? They don't have to. Custom fit earpieces solve all these problems, protect your hearing, and even extend battery life. But getting custom fit was a pain. You had to go to an audiologist, have goo harden in your ear for 30 minutes, wait weeks for delivery and pay $400-$1000. Until SoundFit. Our In-store 3D ear scanning and manufacturing stations can scan your ears in seconds, and manufacture custom fit earpieces on the spot in under an hour -- for under $50.

Introduction for product:

Electronic commerce on Facebook, which is now commonly referred to as "Social Commerce", is the next are to blow up, according to Mark Zuckerberg. This type of online shopping relies on social networks to facilitate business transactions, which makes e-commerce more reliable, friendly and more comfortable to use. People can recommend products to friends, search for sales on a map and rate users. Social Commerce also facilitates resale, in which users sell products from other vendors and automatically earn a percentage on those sales. The combination of features from both social networks with e-commerce means that users can easily donate percentage of their sales to charity.

  • Victor C.

    Hi everyone, I would like to get back in touch with one of the guys who pitched his startup. He might have been the first one, I am not sure. His startup was about helping kids improve after they have bad grades at grammar exams (said in a very bad way obviously). I didn't save his name and I'd like to get back in touch with him. Could anyone put us in touch or transfer his email to me ? Thanks ! Victor
