1) Could you briefly tell us about the Founders?

Michael Pelletz is a very successful entrepreneur. Michael started a global rideshare company geared towards women safety and empowerment 2 years ago called Chariot For Women, which is now called SAFR that has become the safest rideshare company in the industry. Michael is an expert in turning ideas into reality as well as raising millions of dollars in funds and has some of the best media connections in the US. These skills and connections will ensure the success of Fantasy Trivia Live. Fantasy Trivia Live is his brainchild, and like his rideshare company, he will stop at nothing to make Fantasy Trivia Live the most engaging and profitable App in the industry.

2) How did you come up with the idea? You can share your inspirations

Here is my first inspiration: In February of 2016 I founded a company that is based on women’s empowerment. I have been blessed with a very empathetic heart and soul that allows me to truly resonate with men and women across the globe. Although Fantasy Trivia Live is just a gaming App, I knew once again that I wanted our APP to empower women, and boy will it ever. Our hosts are major celebrities. We are providing a platform for these actors/actresses to flaunt their entrepreneurial spirit in a completely new and safe industry.

Here is my second inspiration:

 

I was a huge fan of one of our competitors and I was sitting down at my couch watching TV at 8:59 pm, ready to start playing at 9. Then, that 9pm supposed start turned into 9:03 and then 9:04 and then 9:05. I started to get bored. I then glance back at my phone and I notice that the game is finally about to begin. Well….not for me!! It immediately buffered and kept buffering until it kicked me out. I was done with that APP. Within 1 minute of this happening I knew I had to do something better. Fantasy Trivia Live was born. My number 1 priority was to have an app that would stream flawlessly.

3) Brief about your startup

Fantasy Trivia Live is the most engaging adults only Live Trivia App in the world. Our features, which I am not allowed to discuss will truly blow your mind. We are utilizing the most engaging aspects of the most popular Apps currently available. Unlike other Trivia Apps, you don’t have to be good at Trivia to have an opportunity to win lots of cash and prizes. The world is your oyster and you never know what treasures await!!! The user will have opportunities to stay on the Fantasy Trivia Live app day and night, and we have taken every step to make it as visually stimulating as possible.

4) Who are your Targeted audience?

Anyone over the age of 18 who owns a phone. Period!!

5) What type of strategies do you think is valuable to take company to the next level?

I have spent the last 2 years learning what not do when it comes to designing and building a successful and engaging app. Market research is key. Fortunately for Fantasy Trivia Live our competitors have not adjusted to their flaws, which has opened up such a tremendous opportunity to gain control of the Live Trivia market very quickly.

6) Tell us about your amazing team members?

I can’t. LOL!!! Our lawyers will not allow me to say who they are until we are ready. All I can say is, we have the most beautiful, talented and male and female hosts that have tens of millions of followers on social media. It’s unfortunate, but The fans rarely have an opportunity to interact with celebrities live. With Fantasy Trivia Live that will happen almost on a daily basis.

What is the big picture of your company? 

Here is our mission statement. This is what Fantasy Trivia Live is all about.

Our mission is to bring together the trivia gaming community and the primary gaming community into a single platform allowing a highly profitable environment to evolve, grow, and develop, leading to multiple and ever expanding profit centers and revenue streams.

What are your future plans?

Make BOAT LOADS of cash, I mean an obscene amount, by and island and retire. Just kidding. I want to live a wonderful life with my beautiful family.

7) What is your best motivation line that inspires you?

GO FORTH AND SET THE WORLD ON FIRE

8) What were the key Learning’s from your journey that you would like to share with our audience?

I could write a book about starting a potential billion dollar company and how lonely that can be. Unfortunately, Greed and Power can get to people’s ego and the people who you thought were your friends are not your friends anymore. Then people enter your life and pretend to be a friend, when all they really want is the power or money. That is probably the hardest lesson I learned from trying to do something very special. Every day I walk around with a smile on my face and hold my head up high and I sleep very soundly at night knowing I would never treat people that way. Life will always throw you lemons and you have to be able to make lemonade, which I am lucky enough to have done throughout my life.

Could you share details about source of funding, revenue, client acquisition model and statistics so far?

That is all internal conversations, but what I can tell you is that raising money is my favourite part of the startup process. If you have a great idea, the money will follow.

9) Your website/app/contact details

Please visit our website at www.fantasy-trivia.com and you will have an opportunity to see our brand ambassador/host. She is truly the biggest gaming nerd I have ever met. That is a huge compliment to her. She is truly brilliant and beautiful on the inside and out!!!

Sesame Smart Lock Accommodates New Technology

Palo Alto, CA, April 21, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – is now one of the hottest projects on Kickstarter, which has raised more than one million dollars since launch. Currently, more than 6,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Jerming Gu, the inventor of Sesame, said he wanted to bring the joy of technology to regular people with affordable prices. Sesame is also designed to accommodate the fast changing nature of technology.

In deed, the consumer electronics technology changes year by year. Any users of consumer electronic products – whether it’s a lock or a phone – they will be forced to upgrade the hardware often.

Here are some examples:
1) iPhone 4 (Bluetooth 3.0) is not compatible with iPhone 4S (Bluetooth 4.0);
2) RFID (clipper bus card) is not compatible with NFC (Apple Pay/some credit card);
3) z-wave (most old digital locks) is not compatible with Zigbee (newer digital locks);

“You might want to have a new phone every year but you may not want to construct the door every year just for a newer digital lock,” said Gu.

That’s the problem Sesame is trying to solve.

Now Bluetooth 4.2 is coming, Gu just swapped to the new version 3 Bluetooth chip in mass production.

“Also, the long-distance wireless charging technology is about to hit the market, I feel everything is changing too fast,” said Gu.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

With Internet connection capability, users can allow guests in remotely. They can also control who has access and when. To ensure safety, the Sesame app also sends out a notification whenever the door opens or closes.

About CANDY HOUSE
Founded and developed by Stanford University students, CANDY HOUSE, Inc. is a candy store that sells dreams, putting the joy and surprise of innovative technology in the hands of consumers, just like candy. It is also a design house, developing and manufacturing products that inspire a minimal lifestyle. It launched its first product – Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock – in February 2015.

Stanford Student Entrepreneur Raised $800K on Kickstarter

Palo Alto, CA, April 02, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Stanford student Jerming Gu, founder of CANDY HOUSE Inc., raised more than $800,000 dollars after his product launch on Kickstarter. Sesame – the world’s first instant smart lock – reached its funding goal in nine hours when first introduced. Currently, nearly 5,000 supporters have backed the project.

Sesame allows users to lock and unlock their doors using the Sesame app on their smartphones. It is the only smart lock that syncs the movement of the lock with the phone, providing exact control of the angle to which the lock turns.

Gu is a mechanical engineering master candidate from Stanford University. Originally from Taiwan, Gu is someone who usually thinks outside the box. Disruptor, troublemaker, entrepreneur, as he calls himself.

“There has got to be smarter ways to live our life,” Gu said.

Gu said he got the idea for smart lock due to his experience living in Asia where technology is relatively less developed.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/northern Europe Markets.

CANDY HOUSE also offers optional access point, which connects Sesame to the Internet when plugged into any nearby outlet. It lets users control Sesame wherever they are.

Sesame – smart lock that changes the world

Palo Alto, CA, March 27, 2015 — /EPR ELECTRONICS NEWS/ — Sesame, the world’s first instant smart lock, raised more than seven times of its funding goal on Kickstarter. Launched on Kickstarter on Feb. 25, 2015, Sesame has raised more than $760,000 from backers all over the world.

The smart lock, which allows users to control their door with a smartphone app, attracted thousands.

Connected to users’ phone via Bluetooth, Sesame allows users full control of the lock, even to the exact angle a lock turns. With the optional Wi-Fi Access Point that connects Sesame to the Internet, users don’t even have to be physically near Sesame. The remote control feature allows people to send access to their friends and keep track of whether the door’s locked wherever they are.

With five-patented design, Sesame works with just about any deadbolt in the world. Users can install it in seconds, without replacing existing lock or removing anything. Current model is optimized for US/Canada/Singapore/Norway/Sweden Markets.

With market of Internet of Things (IoT) expanding rapidly, backers are turning more and more attention to smart gadgets that make their life easier. Founded by two students from Stanford University, CANDY HOUSE Inc. designs and manufactures products that inspire a minimal yet joyful lifestyle.

“People will carry less and less things when leave the house, that’s the trend,” said Jerming Gu, founder of Candy House.

Wallet, keys, and cell phone. People used to bring three things when they leave home. Now walltet is gradually replaced by keys. The Starbucks app pays your green tea frappuccino, you Venmo money to a friend for getting late-night pizza, you hop on a Uber without worrying about cab fare or tip.

“With Sesame, the next thing to disappear are the keys,” said Gu.
