BZ Packing Box on Shark Tank
Reusable Moving Boxes - Episode 527 - Season Finale - May 16, 2014
|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 Pitch, which 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 seems 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 versus 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 than 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!
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.
