I was curious to learn more after reading the introductory description of the WaterColorBot and curious about how watercolours and STEM would connect. After watching the pitch however my decision as an EVA is that I would not invest in this venture. My decision not to invest comes down to a few factors. There is no clear pain point or how this product is a solution to a problem or fills a gap. I also don’t see the differentiation of the product. I wasn’t confident with the championship of the venture’s leader – the girl who created the WaterColourBot as a personal project then turned venture. It feels more like a toy so I question whether it’s going to be something that will be able to generate a lot of return or whether it will just be a fad. I’m skeptical about it having the longevity on the market to supply satisfactory return. Also, it seems like it will take a fair bit of time to assemble and some children or parents may not have the skills and patience in order to do this and be turned off by the “assembly required” nature of the product. The point about encouraging STEM felt brief and felt added on. It was more about the girl’s story with how she came up with this project which I felt was somewhat drawn out and self-focused rather than how her creations would fill a gap or need.
