OEN Angel Oregon 2017
In February 2017 when Lulu was a combination of what is now our first and third product series, the first being Lululox, we competed in OEN's Angel Oregon. We performed well and this is where we meet our future interviewer Res Nova Law.
PitchfestNW at TechfestNW
Before the Founding of the company we had been accepted into a global pitch competition. Our founder meet the director on an elevator and gave an elevator pitch. That is how we got in. Elevator pitches work everyone!
Interview with Res Nova Law
In July we had the honor of taking part of a small business spotlight at Res Nova Law. In the interview we explained what we stand for and our intent to become a social enterprise. We believe in the power of economics and entrepreneurship to transform and create better communities. In addition, our founder has ideas and philosophies that he wants spread and he needs a platform to do so. The bicycle represents everything we stand for, community economic growth, green energy, and sustainable transportation. Through an international event that is too be launched after the launch of our final product in the vision of the U, we will have the platform we need to be the change we want to see in the world.
Incubator at Interbike 2017
We were selected as one of four startup companies to participate in the Incubator program at Interbike, North America's largest bicycle trade show. It is here where we gained international exposure and validation. We have the product, the market, and with an accelerator that has understands what it takes to scale internationally and has the ability to help us in that end, we would have what we need to get to market.
Auditions for Elevator Pitch Season 2
In October, Entrepreneur reached out to us with an invitation to audition for their TV show "Elevator Pitch". We performed well but did not make the TV show. However, we will be back so don't be surprised if you see us on TV in 2019!
In early March it became clear that we had a valid market to penetrate and a final design of a product from which to launch. Interbike proved that Lululox has tremendous potential if done correctly and since this is our founder's first company, we decided to get into a program designed to help identify our product market fit and validate our hypothesizes through primary research. Now that that has been completed, our next step is to take the steps necessary to ramp up to initial sales. We are currently conducting beta testing with our early adopters and that is to conclude by the end of July 2018. From there we will be in position to operationalize our business and proceed with sales. As previously stated, we are currently seeking to join an accelerator with a program with the intent of going to market during or by the end of the program. Per the agreement with the Incubator program at Interbike, we will be launching a Kickstarter campaign as our go-to-market platform.

Thanks to our amazing engineer we have already designed our next product, the Rotorlox. At Interbike you will experience the wonder of a uniquely universal keying system as with it, you can use one key for virtually any application that requires a security bolt. Our latest design is currently in production and we are here to make pre-sales to fuel our go-to-market strategy crowdfunding. If you are looking for a component security system that is exceedingly easy to use and install, has near unlimited coding combinations, is highly effective and allows you to use the same key on all products with a LuluLox keying system, come and see us.
