Using a special release, the stroller easily folds with one hand
Unique design makes it easy to maneuver tight spaces in Malls, Grocery
Stores, elevators, and down crowded sidewalks
Sturdy Lightweight aluminum frame with generous Storage Basket
Five Point Safety Harnesses
DuPont Stain Master Nylon Fabric
Reverse Seating Orientation prevents siblings from pestering each other
“I am so happy to have decided to purchase this stroller, it really is the best combination between a tandem stroller and an umbrella stroller.”
“It maneuvers well and fits everywhere unlike most side by sides and front-back strollers and you can't beat the price!”
“Great stroller for SO many reasons!! This stroller folds up nice and compact so my trunk is no longer useless for anything other than the kids' stroller, and the kids love it!”
“Kudos to AntonBella for finally making a great stroller that doesn't require a truck to take along and doesn't break your wallet in the buying process!!”
Large Players (Visa, MC, Banks)
Young athletes spend a significant part of their life on the field of play. Much of what they learn from sports and coaches impact the way they participate and lead teams over the rest of their lives. This creates a serious responsibility for coaches (many times fathers and mothers of players) to exude and instill values of leadership, teamwork, fair play, hard work and dedication.
Coaching for Coaches is an online application that provides two important offerings:
1) Advice and articles on a broad range of coaching related topics including: leadership, running efficient practices, coaching through adversity & success as well as many other topics.
2) Playbooks and strategies for success on game day
“The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination that whether we win or lose, we have applied the best of ourselves to the task at hand.”
-- Vince Lombardi
“Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”
-- Lou Holtz
“Setting a goal is not the main thing. It is deciding how you will go about achieving it and staying with that plan.”
“Don't measure yourself by what you have accomplished, but by what you should have accomplished with your ability.”

iWish.com retailers or wholesalers
Company/Product Concept: How many times have you stumbled through a mall searching for another mediocre gift? Have you faked an enthusiastic smile and “thank you” for yet another snow globe? Why should brides and expecting mothers reap all the benefits of gift registries? iWish.com is an everyday registry that tracks your “wish list” including links to stores, product pictures, prices, etc; so you give what they want, and you get what you want. iWish.com also emails reminders and gift suggestions before you miss your anniversary...again
Consumers: All PC users, all ages; initially focus on people currently using US-based bridal or baby registries. Marketing should be aimed at men who are less accustomed to gift registries and therefore would be more willing to be loyal to iWish.com
Collaborators: Department stores, wholesalers, OEMS (Bloomingdales, Macy’s, Best Buy, Sony, etc.)
Competitors: www.myregistry.com is a cool site with a similar concept. They focus more on wedding and baby shower registries however. Others include www.findgift.com, www.mygiftlist.com as well as retailers like Target and Crate and Barrel.
Placement and Promotion: On-line website; link to collaborators’ sites, web advertising, print ads with catalogs. There are a number of gift registries in existence, but other than those focused on weddings and babies they have little-to-no public visibility. Marketing would be a key component in differentiating iWish.com through brand awareness and positive association.
Price/ Revenue sources: Free site for users. Sponsored by stores, retailers, etc. Revenue from advertisements and “commissions” from referrals for purchases.
Start-Up Requirements: Low capital, short time to market. Start-up costs comprise designing and launching website – estimated $5-10K. On-going costs include web hosting fees, Google fees, maintenance fees… burn rate = $500 - 1,000/mo.
