What's the big idea?
HC Golf is a mobile platform that connects golfers to instructors in real-time. Simply import a video of your swing, describe the advice you are looking for, and connect with a coach for immediate feedback.
HC Golf takes the inefficiencies and high costs out of private coaching by providing a powerful communication and analysis focused infrastructure. Anyone with a smartphone can have instant access to elite coaching.
Describe the nearest player in your field.
1) Traditional lessons.
2) Self-serving information from YouTube and forums
How are you different from that player?
1) Traditional lessons are expensive, time consuming, and have geographically limitations. HC Golf gives you feedback on your swing when you need it most.
2) Online videos/forums are generic. HC Golf instructors provide personalized feedback on your swing.
How does this idea scale into a big business?
The open community scales as golfers use the application on the course, and as instructors bring their existing clients. From a technology standpoint, we are building a platform backed by cloud servers that can be scaled as demand increases.
Why are you the one to run with this idea?
We want this. We will do this.
In 2013 we built the core technology that powers HC Golf. We have an aggressive expansion plan that will take us to very interesting frontiers in 2014 and beyond. We are surrounded by fantastic advisers and partners that will help us out-execute any competition.
What is a $5,000 experiment you can do to move your idea forward?
We plan to test a simple hypothesis over the next 30 days: Are people willing to pay for immediate, virtual swing feedback from instructors local and abroad.
We will also perform in app A/B testing on specific functionality to ensure the best user experience.
