BZ Box - Reusable Moving Box

BZ Packing Box on Shark Tank

Reusable Moving Boxes - Episode 527 - Season Finale - May 16, 2014
Reusable Folding Boxes seen in episode 527
The Easy BZ Box on Shark Tank Season 5 Finale

Now here's an invention thinking outside the box, a cardboard box that is. Kaeya Majmundar has invented another origami product similar to how the Oru Kayak is made, but in the form of reusable moving boxes that easily folds up when not in use. Trying to compare an ordinary cardboard box to the benefits using the BZ Box really is no comparison. With a regular cardboard box you first have to figure out how to fold it, and then tape it together to insure the boxes integrity. With this Easy Box called the B-Z Box, it magically transforms into a storage box using this patented one piece origami design. The process how the B Z Box works completely eliminates the use of any masking tape which is always a pain, both packing and unpacking boxes.

Considering this Episode is the Season 5 Finale and the most successful season thus far, (The Shark Tank Show continues to beat their own records- there's no competition) the producer's saved some of the most interesting products and inventors for this last episode. Kaeya Majmundar may only be 21 years old, but she's no stranger to successfully pitching her product. After securing a provisional patent for the BZ Box, Kaeya entered the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Elevator Pitch Competition and won 1st Place in 2012. Not only did she prove there is a market for a reusable folding box, Majmundar also gained a tremendous amount of confidence that will go a long way inside the Shark Tank.

Below is the Video Kaeya won the Collegiate Entrepreneurs Elevator Pitchwhich has now lead to an appearance on the Shark Tank Show. If shear confidence and motivation is enough to get a deal on the Show, then Kaeya will have no problems convincing the Sharks the BZ Collapsible Box is a Great Idea worthy of an investment.





B Z Box before the Shark Tank Finale


It looks like Kaeya Majmundar and the BZ Box Invention has gone on to win a few other competitions including the CEO People's Choice Award and the Charlotte Venture Challenge Competition last year. With winning all these prestigious awards, you'd think these reusable storage boxes that recyclers are going to love, would already be available for sale at several locations. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be the case. In fact I couldn't find a legitimate website for BX Box, although a fake one has recently appeared that has nothing to do with Kaeya or the BZ Box product.

Another thing that has me questioning what's happened to the BZ Box after Kaeya pitched to the Sharks last year is the name itself. One interview done shortly after this collapsible box was first getting publicity, has Majmundar referring to it as the E-Z Box or Easy Box, which either one seem like great names for this product. It's not that I have anything against BZ, (as hard as I tried, I'm still not sure what that stands for) but going with a descriptive name verses a brand-able name, always comes with built-in advantages, along with the cost savings on what she will need to spend teaching the general public what the BZ Box is all about.

 Now here's the interesting part, this story just gets more and more interesting. Kaeya doesn't seem to have a website for the BZ Box, and no way to buy one of these origami boxes even if you wanted to. Unfortunately, let's see, 100% of past contestants that have been in this position before their episode first aired, didn't get a deal on the Shark Tank, but something about this one is different. First off, Kaeya is having a Shark Tank Viewing Party at Ditka's in Oakbrook Terrace.

 Most contestants would be going half crazy this close to the Season Finale making last minute arrangements and beefing up websites for the flood of traffic after Shark Tank Show. But no, Kaeya's strategy is much different then any other contestant I have ever seen. Now why would Kaeya not be worried about a website presence, much less a product ready to sell to millions of Shark Tank Fans, but still throws a viewing party? Hmm, makes you wonder, doesn't it. Is it possible the BZ Box Patent has already been sold to a Box Manufacture, or tied into a royalty deal? Now that would certainly make a lot of sense, and a great reason to throw a Big Shark Tank Viewing Party.

If there's a website for the BZ Box Product that I haven't been able to locate yet, "please" post it below so we can help get her all the publicity she deserves. Thanks!

UPDATE:
Thanks Kaeya, Congratulations on getting a deal with Lori Greiner on the Show. There's obviously a "BIG" demand for the BZ Boxes. If you have the time, maybe you could tell us how it's going working with Lori, or if the deal was actually completed.

    1. Hi, can you please shoot me an email? I'm in the process of pitching a few ideas to businesses on how they can operate more environmentally efficiently. I saw your recyclable box on Shark Tank and would love to chat a bit with you a bit. I pitched the idea to the VP of a 250+ store chain and he was interested. My goal is to make corporations more environmentally responsible and your product can help hundreds of chains and possibly hundreds of thousands of stores that you haven't thought about.

      CONGRATS! Truly a great idea!

  8. Amazing example of not accepting 'no' as an answer. Extreme perseverance! I cried too when I saw you get the deal. And I'm a pretty tough 36 year old male. Nice job!!

    Great product from a person that is in the manufacturing of Linerboad. Kevin got greedy, Go Laurie.This product has a great upside in manufacturing lines,, ie: Amazon.

  10. I would pay for these boxes too - maybe not $8 a piece (as priced on the website), but definitely for, say, $5/ea. I move a lot, and I usually just get new boxes every time. For me, the square shape is a big selling point as they'll be easier to store when collapsed than traditional boxes. Not to mention that tape adds much more wear and tear over time, so the advantages are not only for convenience but aesthetic as well. Cardboard lasts a long time anyway, and I'd be more likely to keep these boxes to use again.

    I was bewildered by Kevin's ultimatum that is must cost $0.56--identical to the same old cheapo box available to him that still requires tape--as if NOBODY would pay a dime more for a smarter, superior box. Why? I have never seen him actually do a deal; Barbara either for that matter.

    I think your website doesn't make any sense. I went on there expecting to see different box's. But, you have a few box's and some rings?

  14. When I look at comments, they only show time of day, not the date. Is that the same for other people also? And that's on other pages too - things that are clearly not all from today (Yeah, maybe posts today would have just the time they were posted. But look at them the next day and next week and they should show the date they were posted, not just the time stamp? But I'm not seeing that.

    Kaeya: So the boxes on the BZ website say coming soon. Are you in production?

    And trying to find your site, I found www.easyboxcompany.com . they are in production and based in Israel. Are either you or them infringing on the other's patents?

    GREAT product and idea, completely marketable and OF COURSE people are going to pay more for these boxes for all kinds of reasons .... but this girl has A LOT of maturing to do before she will be able to run a successful business entirely on her own. Laurie knows a great idea and marketable product when she sees one and knows she can make this work.

    The execution of BZ Box website is very lacking with its poor design and presentation. She mentions the site was just finished one day prior to Sharktank episode. I presume she had many months in between getting a deal with Lori Greiner and the Shartank episode airing. There's no excuse to have such half baked execution.

    Also, what's the deal with selling rings on the BZ Box website? It just sends the message she isn't focused. She hasn't even successfully executed BZ Box but she is also involved in the ring business. That's a huge red flag. Maybe Barbara was right.

    This young girl may be bright but she isn't ready for the big time. She seems like she is good at pitching at competitions and getting buzz but lacks entrepreneurial execution. She practically resorted to begging, pleading, and crying to get a deal. I'm not impressed.

      Too bad her web site sucks & no way to buy these. My sister has moving business & WAS very interested in trying these as she does reuse boxes. No excuse with a shark tank investor behind her!

  21. An interesting start up for sure. But I believe that moving boxes need to be a little bit more robust if not the weather in Sydney is really going to get to it and eveyrbody knows how unpredictable weather is here..

    The website has no sense about this product, I was wondering what was all this partnering with Lori about.. Even once I google it, I couldn't find your website, but I found few others making the exact product.. I think this product wasn't great deal, and the IP isn't strong or protected enough..

    No way would I pay extra for these boxes. They open easily because they look part open when folded. The standard .56 box will do just fine for me. I also thought her presentation was terrible-begging and crying.

  24. Watched last night's episode. I'm guessing the sharks haven't had to do a lot of their own moving as they likely pay movers to do their heavy lifting. I really do love the idea of this box. One of the worst things about planning a move is hitting up the local supermarkets for their old boxes and ending up with an assortment of all shapes an sizes which are hard to stack and transport. Of course you could stock up on the .56 unassembled boxes but then you have to tape them together which is time consuming; and, if you use a good duct tape to ensure durability that adds to your cost. (Also, I never reuse these boxes because breaking them down to store them,ripping off the tape, etc. usually compromises their structural integrity. If Kaeya's boxes are sturdy and reusable as she claims, I would buy them and I would pay more for them because they would be easy to store. Good luck Kaeya and Lori!
