What's the big idea?
The Revolution enhances the hunting experience through unbeatable comfort, mobility, and stealth. It provides an amazing ability to silently pivot and rotate around a tree, creating unlimited shooting lanes and angles. These features are unmatched throughout the industry. Combine all of the above, along with easy set-up and versatility and you have the beginning of a “Revolution”. Simply put, the REV is the most unique and advantageous product to enter the outdoors market in years.
Describe the nearest player in your field.
There are two basic types of stands on the market, which are made by a variety of companies. The first is a small hang-on tree stand that attaches to a tree and folds out to sit on. The second is a climbing stand that needs a straight, branch-less tree to climb.
How are you different from that player?
The REV offers comfortable support, as well as silent and dynamic maneuvering abilities. It is lightweight and portable, and can easily be set up in any tree. The quiet rotating feature allows for unlimited shooting lanes, setting the REV apart from any other stand on the market.
How does this idea scale into a big business?
There are over 10 million deer hunters in America. Many of them purchase several new tree stands each year, searching for the “right” stand. These hunters are my primary target. Once “Joining the Revolution”, they will be compelled to purchase countless accessories that compliment the REV.
Why are you the one to run with this idea?
I am a motivated and determined Project Manager, who excels in crushing obstacles. These traits serve me daily, and will be vital in bringing this project from infancy to fruition. Join me, and together we’ll show the world a new and revolutionary hunting experience.
What is a $5,000 experiment you can do to move your idea forward?
I plan to set up an L.L.C. and have more units fabricated. This will allow me to get into the trade shows and get the REV into the hands of the consumer, and get real world feedback, proving the REV’s marketability.
