Developing a tech product sounds like a dream job.
Definitely a lot more fun and a lot cooler than what most of spend our days doing.
But as is often the case, the rewards can mask years of endless work, angst and despair - before finally getting a product to market.
And then holding your breath and hoping that customers will buy - and that suppliers will deliver.
I’m Jane Singer and thank you for joining us in today’s episode of our Launch to Legendary series, where we get to hear from entrepreneurs and innovators who have taken the ordinary and turned it into the extraordinary.
Who have built their businesses by seeing opportunities in inopportune circumstances.
Who’ve defined success in their own terms. Together we’ll be able to learn from their experiences and be inspired by what they’ve achieved.
In this episode we’ll be getting up close and personal with what it takes to launch a successful new tech product.
Meet Shea Gerhart, founder and CEO of Buderflys, groundbreaking new earbuds that you can literally wear all day - and even sleep in.
Buderflys are disrupting the earbuds market - by offering an alternative to those often uncomfortable molded plastic earbuds.
Shea realized that while comfort was critical, people also wanted outstanding audio quality. So she designed Buderflys to include state-of-the-art sound (we’re talking music industry professional quality) - and equipped with them Productivity AI Based Hardware.
While Buderflys are currently selling so fast that suppliers can’t keep up with the demand, the road from concept to commercial success was a rollercoaster ride of high highs - and low lows.
Shea will be sharing her story including:
- The most challenging part of taking Buderflys from concept to market - and how she overcame this.
- The biggest lesson she learned launching a successful startup.
- What led Shea to develop Buderflys and how she came to disrupting the earbuds sector.
