The Field Is Ready - Let's Meet Our Teams!

In just one week,  our final eight teams will converge at Fenway Park to present their products and have the opportunity of a lifetime to pitch to press, businesses and other influencers. We're in full swing with the regular season and can't wait to meet our finalists. Today we're telling our community a little bit about the teams in the first of a two-post series. Below read more about the four finalists who won crowd favorite in the Ready for Crowdfunding category.

 

Bringrr and BringTags

by Bringrr Systems LLC

Product Pitch Compettion | bringrr

Bringrr + Bring Tags is a phone charger and reminder device so you never leave your phone or belongings behind.

What inspired you to create your product that you're bringing to Fenway on March 20th?

It all started with our CEO's uncanny ability to forget his phone everywhere. He wanted a reminder device that could be left in the car and practically forgotten until it was needed. So we began to think of things that are always in your car...a car charger! This charger could notify people when their phone isn't with them. We then went a step further to think of other things people might typically forget or leave behind. So we created BringTags to easily attach to anything that could potentially be forgotten or lost.

What are you most looking forward to taking away from the event?

I believe we will take away many positive things from the contest, namely exposure and the experience of the event. I'm originally from north of Boston so I know that presenting at Fenway will be a memorable experience. The press will also be an enormous benefit that will help us grow Bringrr and gain more awareness. I can't wait!

O-Rings: Sensory Learning Playthings

by Increment

Product Pitch Compettion | orings

O-Rings are sensory learning toys for kids of all abilities.

What inspired you to create your product that you're bringing to Fenway on March 20th?

My Co-Founder and I have always been interested in medical design, and in designing specifically for children. The O-Rings were inspired by Megan, a little girl we met while conducting research at Meeting Street School, an inclusive learning school in Providence, Rhode Island. She is blind and has other impairments that effect her balance. It's difficult to find toys that she'll enjoy, particularly for playing with friends. She inspired us to create a fun toy that all kids can play with together.

What are you most looking forward to taking away from the event?

As recent college graduates, we've been working hard to build our product and we're so grateful to have made it this far. We're excited to share our story, check out the other products, and make friends and connections.

 

Customizable Rainboot

by Decz LLC

Product Pitch Compettion | customizable rainboots

DECZ rain boots are a patent-pending rain boot with a double layer design which allows a waterproof insert to be placed and changed at will.

What inspired you to create your product that you're bringing to Fenway on March 20th?

As I walked through a shoe store one afternoon, I noticed the many different rain boots with all different designs. I thought how useful and economical it would be if there were a single rain boot available that had interchangeable designs. Not only an economical option, but it would allow for creativity, and help to de-clutter closets. What I most love is that DECZ rain boots allow consumers to choose a stylish insert that fits their mood, outfit, and budgets.

What are you most looking forward to taking away from the event?

We feel that we’ve already won just by being invited to participate. Since we're a startup company, any industry connections, guidance on crowd funding and press exposure will be extremely beneficial to launching our product.

 

Tray Bien (TM)

by Laurnika Designs LLC

Tray Bien | Product Pitch Compettion

Tray Bien™ is an innovative, patent-pending briefcase that securely stores your devices, magazines, documents, ear buds, etc. and slides directly onto the tray table in an airplane.

What inspired you to create your product that you're bringing to Fenway on March 20th?

As frequent travelers, we recognized a problem without any known solutions.  When traveling in economy class, there is no convenient way to store or access your belongings and devices during takeoff, landing or even in flight. We designed  Tray Bien™ to fill this need.

What are you most looking forward to taking away from the event?

We've truly enjoyed being part of this process so far and we're thrilled with the visibility that our company has been offered.  It will be exciting to see all the creative and innovative hacks and we look forward to learning from and networking with fellow entrepreneurs, Grommets, coaches and presenters.  Plus, you can’t beat the venue - the vibe of Fenway further adds to the excitement!
