Company: Utopia Premium Tea
Alberto started Utopia Premium Tea after identifying a void in the marketplace: the lack of quality tea in Central America. In the journey to find the best product, he discovered the Coban region in Guatemala produced exquisite tea. Alberto’s commitment to exposing the world to Coban tea has strengthened the brand as Utopia continues to flourish.
Today, Utopia Premium Tea is known for using 100 percent local ingredients, establishing itself as the first tea blending company in Guatemala. Utopia’s vision for the future is to continue producing high- quality tea provider while expanding its client base locally and internationally.
Company: Rain Smart
School: Universidad Francisco Marroquín
Equipito LLC was created for the purpose of serving as a commercial vehicle for any ideas that I intended to turn into businesses. For the past year I’ve been working on a product called Rain Smart. It’s essentially a gadget for your car in order to avoid rain water when getting in and out of your car. We have had 3 prototypes, 2 small market research samples, 1 unsuccessful Indiegogo campaign, and one Gadget Flow listing that has drawn a LOT of attention. Over 10,000 people have seen Rain Smart online in less than 50 days, 1,800+ people have shown interest to pre-order at a price point of $99 but have been drawn away by the waiting period. We are trying to start a company around this product, through distribution agreements, licensing and online sales.
