CEO of MySwimPro
Strengths
says, "The CEO has awesome energy, passion, and domain expertise in the space! This is an untapped market opportunity and the company is growing quickly. I believe there is great potential to diversify revenue streams beyond the already profitable comic book line. Digital is the wave of the future and this company is positioned well to capitalize on this trend."
Advice
says, "I’d like to see a larger focus on more digital strategy and execution around the mobile application. It’s great to have a supporting physical product, but I think the future of the space is digital and pursuing this category with more intensity will pay dividends in the future. Best of luck!"
