Investor Testimonials

Jeffery Potvin, Supporters Fund

“The big opportunity with RYSE really drives down to the market opportunity. They really understand this space, and that’s going to allow them to win and allow them to attract a really good suitor.

I really believe that this market is going to grow significantly as the rest of the world starts looking into more around home automation. Think of that time when you wake up, and your blinds start to rise, and you didn’t have to do anything. This is where home automation is going, and what RYSE is going to do with blinds, is what Ecobee did to thermostats.”

Louis Dellosa, Cogito Capital

“What we liked about RYSE is that it was a technology that was designed and built in such a way that it could easily integrate in many different places with little customization.

The big opportunity we see in the smart building space and RYSE is the data-driven optimization of a home or office building. It’s cumbersome and often impractical to manually adjust energy-saving variables in your building as it’s being optimized by an algorithm. So technologies that enable remote and automatic adjustment are really the key to creating this digital transformation at scale.”

Partner Testimonials

Ryan Killeen, Annex Hotel

“RYSE will allow our guests to enjoy a higher quality of life from the moment they wake up to sunshine in the morning, to when they go to sleep in the privacy of darkness. Our guests will be easily able to control their shades from the comfort of their beds through our iPads while watching Netflix.”

Peter Polydor, Ergo Properties

“We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our properties by morphing them into spaces that our companies truly love to experience. By allowing us to convert our normal window shades into automated ones, we can do just that with RYSE.”
