Describe the company – the elevator pitch

Vizrec is a visual recognition app that recognizes celebrities/regular people you don’t know and fetch details about them, and from there once information is fetched about who that person is it can lead to there youtube,twitter,instagram,facebook, and any other page, we want vizrec to get to a point we can recognize not just an extreme portion of celebs we want to also recognize billions of humans worldwide. Also once we evolve we want to recognize  things such as having the app as an interactive social media, which allows for example a person to hang a flyer in a location about anything literally, for example company/ or hypothetically if a musician have an album vizrec will detect how many people was at that particular location or user can scan billboards or certain things, and it can lead to whatever the owner wants such as an album, or ticket sites to order for a speaking engagments, so the overall goal is to have a platform that can really be the leader of the visual world and take over, but we are aware to take it one step at a time, so for right now we will focus on celebrities, and regular people.

How are you different? Why will the company / product do well?

Right now in this field we have no serious competitors for face recognition, the reason we feel that is because in the past facial recognition apps been announced but never completed, and the ones that suppose to recognize celebs never succeeded with accuracy , and there focus was more so things like objects, our focus is humans first celebs/regular people. So overall we don’t have competitors that focus strictly on facial recognitions, as well as the other dominant features we pose. the others focus on objects and they more then likely been out 4-5 yrs, and there product just don’t resonate with the public. So with our overall features we have now listed above, I see no real competiton with us. The reason I feel we do well is because the public been demanding this for quite some time, and it’s so many things you can do visually to the point, i think we can partner with other brands worldwide, and make things just overall easier, we want to innovate the world, and we strive to be one of the biggest companies to ever be created, we have a young team and they are all from different countries adding there flavor and input to Vizrec to help us become a success.

What have been your biggest wins to date?

Our biggest wins to date i would say is for us to find an amazing team in the begining to make this come true alone was huge, and ill say the overall reception we got from tech bloggers, writers and the general public, everyone was excited, so that’s a win for us, because at the end of the day, we made a product to help inform users, educate users, and in the future you will see us make a lot of everyday life tasks easier, we are for the people.

What type of people (market segment) are you trying to attract to your product?

My app target audience is for people worldwide, for the simple reason we offer many things that people in everyday life face, and it will come a point to where they must use our app because we make things easier, we want this to be used in MVA, scan items, speed lines up in stores, etc and so much more,  life is very visual, so it will come a time where every type of person must use us.
