This week’s exciting events included receiving a phone call from the TV show Shark Tank, signing a contract with an Orlando product development company for CAD 3D drawings, as well as various Kitty LitterBowl marketing endeavors. What a week! We finally feel like we’re on the road realization.
Although a Kitty LitterBowl appearance on Shark Tank is unlikely due to our very recent start-up and goal to license rights to other businesses, it was thrilling to receive a preliminary phone call from one of their assistant producers. After the interview, the assistant producer informed us that she’d pass on the information to a producer for further review.
We also made the decision to sign a contract with Design Launchers, an Orlando product development company, for 3D CAD drawing design, the first step in developing a Kitty LitterBowl prototype. We’re anxious to get our hands on a prototype so we can video record Roo and Spike using it and prove its awesome functionality. And, we’re growing extremely tired of cleaning up cat litter caused by flawed cat litter box designs!
Other activities included creating a fundraising letter and brochure that we’ll send to well-known environmentalists and animal lovers to boost donations on GoFundMe. We received enough money to pay for CAD drawings and a prototype, but machining for plastic injection molding will cost approximately $50,000. Donations of all sizes are greatly appreciated!
We look forward to sharing pictures and videos of Kitty LitterBowl in action!
