“Thank you all for being here. I’m excited to tell you about the opportunity,” the inventor said, giddy with the prospect of investors liking his idea.
“Tell us more about ‘Dash Alarm’,” requested the investor impatiently.
“Dash Alarm sends a signal from emergency vehicles to a flashing light inside cars. Loud music? Wearing headphones? No worries. Dash Alarm will let you know. Drivers have a better chance of reacting in time, we overcome sound ordinances, and emergency vehicles will be a little safer at high speeds.” the inventor explained.
The investors huddled for a moment allowing only faint whispers to be heard outside their circle.
“Interesting, but I don’t think people will pay attention to one more light in the cab. How do you overcome that?” Another investor questioned.
“That’s where our upgraded version comes into play. ‘D@sh @larm.” The inventor said, “With D@sh @larm, emergency vehicles will tweet drivers letting them know to move over. The driver will check their notifications almost immediately.”
“Now that’s innovation! People are way more likely to look at their phones while driving than they are to take note of some silly dash board light,” the third investor said, pulling out a check book.
