Last chance to invest before this company becomes a household name

If you had the opportunity to invest in the biggest electronics products before they launched into big box retail, would you?

Through retail distribution deals with Best Buy, Ring changed doorbells and Nest changed thermostats. Early investors in these companies earned massive returns, but the opportunity to invest was limited to a select, wealthy few.

The game has changed, and for once investors have the option to invest in a company that’s gearing up for a massive retail rollout.

RYSE is launching in 100+ Best Buy stores, and you’re in luck—you can still invest at only $1.25/share before their name becomes known nationwide.

They have patented the only mass market shade automation device, and their exclusive deal with Best Buy resembles that which led Ring and Nest to their billion-dollar buyouts.

If you missed out on investing in Ring early on, you’re not alone! The founder of Ring pitched on the hit show Shark Tank at a valuation of just $7 million and the sharks shut him down.

 5 years later, the company sold to Amazon for more than $1 Billion. Turning the 10% stake initially offered to the sharks from $700K into $100M!

RYSE on the other hand pitched on the Canadian version of Shark Tank called Dragon’s Den and received two offers! It seems the Dragons learned from the Sharks’ mistakes.
