Young Entrepreneur Launches Dropbox Rival… With PowToon [Case Study]
“How do you get an investor to invest in your new business?”
Young entrepreneur Doug Mason (CEO, founder of Nethervault) needed to present his cutting edge dropbox rival to a potential investor… and was presented with the big challenge: What does he say and how does he say it..? so the investor jumps up and says: “Please let me invest in you and don’t show this to anyone else!”
Nethervault?is a game-changer in the secure data storage space. Why? Because Doug created something that not even Google Drive or Dropbox uses:
Cornea Biometric Encryption Technology (eye scan security)
So it was crucial that Doug get his message across in the most powerful way. He made the smart decision to make a short Powtoon and got the exact result he was looking for.
Doug “Pitched with a Simple Powtoon”…That Made a Big Impression on Investors
I sat down with Doug to learn more about his success. Watch this fun “PowToon Interview” I did from when we spoke:
Sure, you could make a boring powerpoint or keynote ??but it would look just like everyone else’s, and take forever to convey the concept. And sure, you could make a “direct to camera” video ??but you’d need professional lighting, editing and a fancy microphone. Unless you have the expensive gear or years of video experience, you’ll have a tough time making a captivating and gorgeous creation fast.
Or, you could easily make a short PowToon. Which is like getting an entire design and animation team, right at your fingertips.
That’s how?Doug WOWED his investors?and professors. Yep, you read that right ? professors. This genius is only 19 years old. Remember when Doug becomes famous and how you saw him here first. I’m totally serious – watch out for?Nethervault’s upcoming rise.
Let me know in the comments how YOU plan on WOW’ING YOUR audience.
