We've built a portable, affordable, on-demand speaking coach that helps you effectively plan, practice and deliver your speech with confidence.

Our Vision.

We want to own the public "speakosystem through a freemium subscription model. First, with our speech-to-text filler word counter MVP and moving on to later incorporate video analysis and Machine Learning-powered speech writing and insights.

How we came up with the idea.

We can all relate to the challenges of speaking in front of a group. This team is particularly passionate about it. One of our founders is an active member of Toastmasters and a former client of a human speaking coach. We saw a need and an unmet market opportunity.

What we accomplished in 72 hours.

We've collected 70 survey responses, have interviewed at least 15 strangers and have another 15 individuals as of 7:33 a.m. who have tested our initial prototype and provided feedback. We've developed our content strategy and financial model. We have working code on a separate work stream that will be fully functioning by deadline time. Our team has solidified. All of this without functioning wifi for most of our time on the bus. And with an unexpected half-day hurdle as our original bus died. Oh yeah, and we collectively pushed our bus from a hotel outside of Louisville to Goodyear up the street. Yes, we pushed it.
