Best Buy Introduces New Smart Home Category

The leading retailer in the distribution of Smart Home products has recently unveiled a new addition to its smart home lineup, Smart Shades.

There are A LOT of windows out there, and with only a small 10% of them being automated, this is a market that’s already worth billions with projected double digit growth for the next decade!

Recognizing this, Best Buy has made a huge bet on an innovative startup, and has already stocked their product in over 100 retail stores. This up-and-comer is RYSE, and for a limited time, you can invest in their vision of owning the Smart Shades industry.

Best Buy made similar bets on smart-home titans Ring and Nest, both of which saw billion-dollar exits at the hands of Amazon and Google.

Looking to follow in their footsteps, RYSE’s share price has grown by over 20X since it was founded, with significant room for growth as they capitalize on the increasing demand for its patented tech.

Learn how you can invest at just $1.50/share here.

Why Best Buy is Doubling Down on the Smart Home

Smart home device shipments are booming, with smart lighting and shades leading the charge.

Like they did with Ring and Nest before it, Best Buy has hand-picked RYSE as the next innovator in this smart home category with a massive inventory rollout.

Through extensive retail distribution, and a growing number of deals in commercial real estate, RYSE is on the path towards making its brand synonymous with Smart Shades.

If you missed out on Ring and Nest and their billion-dollar acquisitions, this is your chance to secure your stake in the smart home market.

Invest in RYSE at $1.50/share.
