The Best Business Pitch Ever?
— Maetenloch

Here Rachel Sequoia pitches her "Share The Air" business to entrepreneurs and VCs at the first Venture Capital Fundraising Club of Silicon Valley (VCFC) event held in Palo Alto, CA last month. And she's clearly channeling her inner Billy Madison since I definitely felt dumber after having listened to it.

But after laughing and mocking I started thinking about her plan. Clearly her initial $100 price point is too high but if she could get it down to say $5 or $10 she might have something. Because after all people do go to oxygen bars and buy Twilight crap - so why not boutique air?

Some say her pitch is real while others say it's just a clever satire and I go back and forth myself. Even if it is satire, it's still only slightly dumber than a lot of startup ideas.

Rachel may be a kooky hippie chick, but she also might be kooky like an endangered island fox.

5 If she has sold any of this it just illustrates how stupid some people are. Does the air come with a "joke book"?

6 She wants someone to subsidize her world tour.  She gets to see the world and then claim the business never took off.

Gotta hand it to the little hippie, she may yet get a nice vacay funded by some idiots.

Anyone willing to put up $500,000 for me to bottle water in exotic locales?

It reminds me of the woman a few years ago who took up an online collection to pay off her debts, because she was a shopaholic.  And people donated.  A lot.

18 Little known is the fact that $284 million were put aside in the Porkulus to purchase massive numbers of jars of foreign air.  They wanted to equalize the rest of DC with the White House.

Was she hot?  Had to be, because I can't fathom people donating a red cent to a shopaholic who looked like the love child of Godzilla and The Thing.

22 I'd find $5 million for her if it would fund filling her air jars with some sort of instantly lethal gas that would put her and all her potential customers out of my misery.

24 8 I have an image of hotness from the freeze frame, and am going to stick with that instead of watching the vid. I heard there were hairy armpits.

31 For those keeping track, 75% oxygen 21% nitrogen 1% "other stuff" (maybe... methane? Actually it's mostly CO2, the invisible killer) and 6% "energy" totals to 103%.

Posted by: ace at March 29, 2011 10:07 AM (nj1bB)

32 Like the idea, love the passion. Think of all the applications - you could inflate your tires with compressed air from China or New Zealand. You could open the jar underwater and make a bubble with air from Chile or San Marino, the list goes on. There is a fantastic opportunity for Meghan to leverage mindshare with smart use of social media and other buzzwords. Really the only downside is the limited opportunity for investors to get in on it.

73 "Gotta give her credit for showing up. I could have the most kick ass business idea in world, but would be too much of a scardy cat to pitch it to a room full of strangers."

I gotta admit, you're right.  She is willing to present her argument, and she presents it a lot more earnestly than I could.  And I even think she could make money doing this.  $100 is absurd, but take an air tank from Paris to a swanky restaurant in Madison, WI, and some morons will absolutely pay $5 to breath the Paris moonlight with their sweet beau.

It's the kind of idea that is obvious, yet takes guts because it's also quite stupid.

109 Selling air, huh, good thing there is no inflation.

As an expected increase in the cost of raw materials looms for late summer, consumers are beginning to encounter shrinking food packages.

With unemployment still high, companies in recent months have tried to camouflage price increases by selling their products in tiny and tinier packages. So far, the changes are most visible at the grocery store, where shoppers are paying the same amount, but getting less.

In conjunction with this, the thrown which is only left to me as the eldest man in the family is been battled by the member of the twenty one hamlet that made up of Ashanti kingdom.

Argon is the biggie, but it's inert. Next up is water vapor at 0.40% for the entire atmosphere, but is in the 1-4% range at the surface. CO2 comes in at a whopping 0.039%.

Remember that the next time some greenie says CO2 is gonna kill us: water vapor is more abundant and a more efficient "greenhouse gas" than CO2.

OT: "Hoyer: Shutdown Likely, but Dems Not to Blame" 

Lots of whispering about a shutdown today, and this^ is the latest. The Dems say they made an offer of $20B, which the Rs deny. A story is also circulating that a budget deal was almost made last week to the tune of $35B in cuts but it didn't go over well with many conservatives in the House.* Regardless of what happened, the fact remains that neither side is getting what they want, so there very well could be a shutdown on the 8th due to internal fighting in both camps and neither party wanting to cede ground to the other. Then again, this could all just be noise.

*Hard to say if it's actually true.

I remember when I first read about the teachings of Jean Jacques Rousseau (in Paul Johnson's Intellectuals).  I though about Rousseau's desire to have people live in an innocent, childish state and said, "Holy cats, that's what all these whimsical hippies are all about!"

I'd hit it after she washed her hairy armpits and dirty bits.

Posted by: conscious, but incoherent at March 29, 2011 04:26 PM (YVZlY)

And y'know...if the armpits are hairy it's a safe bet that her dirty bits are a friggin' forest -- just sayin'.

202 This comes perilously close to to my patented, trademarked and copyrighted product of "cannd farts".  Imagine farts in a can that you could open up in a room whenever you wanted to clear it out or make people wince.

Prices would go from a few dollars for ordinary farts, to tens of thousands of dollars for "celebrity farts".   Imagine having a canned fart from Natalie Portman--can you imagine how rare that would be?

We would even have fart farms and a Facebook application where you could go on and click wherever you farted....

207 You know they were all just looking at each other to see who was going to bust out laughing first.

They were looking at something that has essentially zero start-up costs, and the potential to go viral.  I bet some of them were thinking that with a 100K LOC, an experienced marketeer, they could catch lightning in a bottle - and get a BJ.

208 197  Did they give a timeframe?

They have until the 8th to make a deal, and the Republican budget is being released sometime next week. As for the timeframe of an actual shutdown-- if it actually occurs-- no idea. It depends who in the Republican Party is making demands and what they are demanding.

222 Wonder how vintage a jar of air from Granpa's outhouse would be? Got to be worth at least as much as air from Rome or Paris. Well maybe not Paris.

Well yeah, but that $10,000 air oughta have extra energy in it, or it's just not worth 10k.

75% oxygen

21% nitrogen

1% "other stuff" (maybe... methane? Actually it's mostly CO2, the invisible killer)

and

6% "energy"

totals to 103%

227 I'm going to start bottling my urine and label it "Yellow Piss" and sell it as a high end sports drink because it has electrolytes. $100 a bottle should be about right.

Posted by: Dr. Heinz Doofensmirtz at March 29, 2011 01:18 PM (dg3fX)

228 But after laughing and mocking I started thinking about her plan. Clearly her initial $100 price point is too high but if she could get it down to say $5 or $10 she might have something. Because after all people do go to oxygen bars and buy Twilight crap - so why not boutique air?


If there is a market for boutique air, how about we create a market for snark, since the bloggers here have the most and the best.  We could call it the AoSSnarkExchange, or ASSEX, and charge people for...uh...something.

Step 1:  AssEx
Step 2:  ???
Step 3:  Profit!

Like Obama, I must bear the burden of my brilliance.
