UNOBRUSH: One Toothbrush to Rule Them All

Nothing you wear is more important than your smile. So, why settle for anything but the best?

UNOBRUSH is the world’s smartest toothbrush that cleans your pearly whites — and 99.9% of your entire mouth.

Seriously.

I know, I know. It sounds too good to be true. But, the patent-pending 360-degree wrapping UNOfoam, pulsing sonic vibrations and ergonomic mouthpiece make the UNOBRUSH the sharpest tool in your oral-hygiene toolbox.

The UNOBRUSH team has put their money where their mouth is and can back all their claims up 100%. For example, the patent-pending medical-grade sponge-like material that they developed — UNOfoam — is optimized specifically to offer the best in oral hygiene, and had been put through several clinical trials and hundreds of material tests.

If you need something else to smile about — you’ll love hearing that the UNOfoam was developed using advanced 3D tooth mapping technology to achieve a one-size-fits-all mouthpiece. In addition, to ensure your smile is as healthy as can be — they’ve outfitted the docking station with a UV light that sanitizes your UNOBRUSH after every use.

Hustle & Grow with CoFounders Retreat

A great idea and unrelenting drive to succeed will often only get you so far.

 

No great thing has ever been built alone – and for aspiring entrepreneurs, this couldn’t be more accurate.  No matter how far you’re willing to push yourself, it’s absolutely crucial to get the right people by your side in order to optimize efficiency and get your venture to market.

 

Finding the right Co-Founder, however, is actually the one of the main challenges most entrepreneurs face.  It’s quite difficult to find one that fills in the specific gaps you’re looking for while sharing your vision; and those who do often end up being a bad cultural fit or have a tough time getting along on a personal level.

 

Introducing CoFounders Retreat: a startup development program that allows entrepreneurs to build their ideas and find their ideal Co-Founders – in the background of paradise.

We take 30 young professionals from around the world with a drive to disrupt industry, immerse them in the inspiring Bali ecosystem, and provide an epically intense experience for 4 weeks.  The result is the lasting business relationships that turn concepts into legitimate ventures.

 

The entrepreneurial mindset is fostered through workshops, mentoring, guest lectures, and even wellness activities like yoga and sports to maintain that mind-body connection.  Other program features include:

 

  • Access to an expansive library of digital learning resources
  • Constant feedback & perspective from expert-level mentors on the growth of your idea
  • A beautiful, memorable setting to keep you in the right mindset
  • An in-house chef to provide nutritious, locally-sourced meals
  • The opportunity to pitch your idea at the end of the program to investors, accelerating the next stage of your growth

Founder Fyodor Blumin kicked the tires on CoFounders Retreat earlier this year and has made quite a bit of progress since.  In addition to having program structure and logistics in place, the company has also secured an impressive list of guest mentors including 4-time TEDx speaker Paul Dunn, B1G1 Founder/CEO Masami Sato, and many more.

 

CoFounders Retreat is now gearing up for its next program in Bali, to be held in March 2019.  They’re currently accepting applications to be part of this next tribe – so if you’re interested or would like more information, visit cofoundersretreat.com or email hello@cofoundersretreat.com.

How to Visualize Your Startup Idea for Your Audience

People often say the most challenging issue with getting a startup off the ground is attracting investors and obtaining capital. But this isn’t entirely accurate.

The real challenge is being able to convey your idea to investors succinctly, so they understand what you’re pitching them.

Practical Tips for Explaining Your Idea

Some innovations are easier to explain than others. If your startup is difficult for people to grasp, you need to improve how you pitch and discuss the idea. Check out these three tips that will help you help your audience understand what you’re pitching.

  1. Come Up With a One-Sentence Explanation

The very first thing you need to do is come up with a clean, succinct, and easy-to-understand explanation of what your startup is attempting to do … in one sentence.

There are plenty of different formulas and strategies you can turn to, but here’s one of the best: “My company, [Company Name], is developing [a defined offering] to help [a target audience] [solve this problem] with [your secret sauce].”

You obviously don’t have to follow this formula precisely, but the point is there: Find a way to describe your startup in a single sentence. Obviously, you’ll have to do more than deliver a sentence on the day, but this gives you a strong foundation upon which to build the rest of your pitch. 

  1. Visualize, Visualize, Visualize 

Words will only do so much. The human brain is hardwired to process visuals much faster and more efficiently. If you want to articulate your idea to your audience, you should depend on the assistance of well-developed visualizations.

For example, let’s say you’re an architect or design firm that’s attempting to pitch a revolutionary new structure that may fundamentally transform the look of a neighborhood in your town. You can describe the changes, but it’s something else to show your audience what you propose to do.

This is where a 3D rendering tool like Lumion — which empowers you to bring CAD plans to life — comes to the rescue. It immerses the audience in your concept and helps them see it for what it is.

Visualization can also be much simpler. For example, you may be pitching a service (which isn’t as easy to visualize as a building or physical product). In this case, something like the business model canvas could suffice as a powerful visualization for connecting ideas and helping people understand what you’re doing.

  1. Personalize Your Pitch to Your Audience

It’s a major mistake to approach every pitch situation the same way. Even if you’ve had immense success raising funds from one investor, you should be wary of using the exact same approach on the next one.

People are different and you need to engage on a personal level. “If at all possible, make your explanation relate to the person you are speaking to,” startup founder and investor Diana Kander suggests.

“Has the problem you are solving affected them? Do they know anyone with this problem? The more interactive you can make your pitch, the higher the chances that your audience will be receptive to it.”

Do You Know What You’re Talking About? 

It’s one thing to convey a complex idea to a group of potential investors or business partners. But the more essential question is: Do you understand the idea yourself?

Believe it or not, some entrepreneurs don’t fully understand their own ideas. Sure, they can communicate the basic gist, but they haven’t taken the trouble to flesh out the details and connect all the dots to the level that would impress potential backers.

Before you can explain a complicated startup idea to others, you have to be fairly certain that you have an intimate understanding of it from the inside out. Then, armed with the techniques addressed in this article, maybe you can start a meaningful dialogue.
