Getting Ready for The Gadget Show Live!
Hi, my name is James and I’ve been working alongside Robin and Hannes since 2013 to come up with a new type of flood defence system that overcomes many of the limitations experienced with existing solutions, such as sandbags.
My main interest is marketing, so when the Gadget Show approached HydroGuard about showcasing our new product at Gadget Show Live, I knew it was going to be too good an opportunity to turn down.
Fast-forward 2 months, and we’ve been spending the past few weeks working hard to put plans in place to get ready for Gadget Show Live, where HydroGuard has been short listed for the Top British Inventor’s Awards. This is a fantastic opportunity and we are very grateful to the show organsiers for giving us this fantastic platform to launch our new product.
Not only are we going to be launching our prototype but we are also planning to start our Kickstarter campaign at the show. It will run for 45 days and will get us to the point where we will have a product, tested, certified and ready to sell.
Kickstarter allows anyone the opportunity to not only support the company with the next stage of our development program, but you can also secure one of the very first Hydroguard models for yourself. You can commit as little as £1.00 and you will receive a thank you message direct from the Hydroguard founders and the ability to track the project’s progress as a Kickstarter backer via blogs, Twitter and Facebook.
If you’re planning on coming to the show , then make sure your pop by our stand (Stand BIP 22). By supporting our Kickstarter campaign on our stand, we will also enter you into a raffle for a new iPad, with the winner being announced on Sunday 13th April.
I’m looking forward to meeting many of you next week.
