JayKay on German TV Show
On 8th October JayKay was in the German TV show “The Cave of the Lions”. A show for people with exciting business ideas, but not enough money for realization. Here you get the chance to find investors. “The Cave of the Lions” is internationally successful and runs in the US under the title “Shark Tank” and in the UK as “Dragons’ Den”.
After our pitch, investor Frank Thelen is immediately on fire and trying out the electric board. “But it’s not that smooth,” he notes shortly afterwards. The records were made half a year earlier when we had planned our outdated remote control. Among other things for this reason we have moved away from the sensor technology and now have a control with a normal rotary wheel.
For Frank Thelen, the high-priced board is nothing. He would have invested in a € 500 mass product for the road, and eventually dropped out for that reason. The other investors did not see in themselves the right investors, because they had no points of contact with the technology so far thus saw no benefit for us.
Although we left the show without a deal at the end, we have benefited from the incredible reach of this TV format.
On TVnow you can watch the pitch again!
