It’s a time of uncertainty. Unrest grips the rivers as the influence of Sasquatch, iffy weather and foul-smelling waders spreads, but a glimmer of hope remains in the heroic offerings of Petru VIZITIU. As he struggles against the dark might of the enemy, this brave hero may yet awaken the technology needed to forge a new fishing future. All he needs is… $1 million.
RoboFisher, says Romanian entrepreneur Petru VIZITIU, is the planet’s first robotic rod that can be controlled online, from a computer or through a mobile device browser, in order to “fish real fish in a similar way to traditional fishing.” His company is now seeking a savvy investor for the next round of operations. Taking the top outdoor recreational activity indoors is an obvious money maker, he continues.
“We plan to industrialize and upscale this business at the global level targeting up to $150M sales and $50M profits. Ambition is that in 7-10 years to have installed 5,000 Robotic Rods on approximately 50 fishing sites generating up to 7 million sessions sold per year.”
RoboFisher will cost $20 per fishing session. A fraction of what you’d spend for a day on the river with Landon Mayer. Plus, “this innovation creates a new dimension for Fishing Recreational Industry—online distant fishing fully controlled by customer, accessible to everyone.
“Please let me know if this interests you as an investment and I wood be happy to connect however you prefer.”
