The Lanterman Group



Leading Tech-Startup to Initial Seed Funding and Product Launch  

Guiding founders of an innovative, universal-access device through strategic decisions.


The Challenge

Everykey, a Cleveland tech-product startup, created a bluetooth-enabled wristband to replace keys and passwords. The founders had validated the technology and needed to raise seed capital and develop the initial products in support of a successful Kickstarter campaign.

Everykey needed assistance with all aspects of starting a tech product company including launching a product, growing a team, and fundraising seed investments.

The Outcome

With the guidance of The Lanterman Group, Everykey created a go-to-market strategy for the product as well as technical direction. We worked with the team to identify the opportunity and create the product in support of the Kickstarter campaign.

The Lanterman Group helped Everykey grow from a validated technology into a company by assisting with hiring, managing product development, and securing $1.2 million in seed funding.

We helped the company with strategic decisions related to both product development and business development. The Lanterman Group worked with the founders to negotiate with investors to secure $1.2 million in 8 months.
