In reviewing the pitch, I feel I would want to invest for the sole fact that it is such a noble venture, despite the slight boringness of the inventor/pitchman. I believe he really knows his stuff, but he is also a bit vague when discussing the piece about people who’ve offered him devices (ie: Microsoft and people contributing their own time). I wonder if these people have invested. Because Neil Degrasse Tyson is shown, is he also an investor/promoter? I’m not sure.
I feel another thing missing from this pitch is the reaction from those using it. I see a couple scene with children smiling and using the prosthesis limitedly, but what can they say about it as they are the ones using it, not Mr. LaChapelle.
From what I see, Mr. Lachepelle is very much still at the beginning of his journey as there is limited financial information shared and who else he is working with other than the vague mentions as shared above. Has he sold any devices or are any in use for long-term evaluation? We don’t know because we see little-to-none of it in the video.
It doesn’t take long for me to go online and find other (much larger) companies working on these “bionic” devices as well. Mr. LaChapelle doesn’t do a great job in sharing what sets him apart from others and what he bring what they don’t. He knows what he’s talking about but I wonder if maybe he’d be better off selling his technology to a larger company. Now that I think about it, I wonder if this venture is for the sole purpose of building up his market value to do such a thing…
All in all, not bad, but I don’t believe it’s 100% ready yet either.
