With an inception as early as 2006, we have tinkered with prismatic reflective material and LEDs to create safety apparel that is significantly improved from reflective-only vests. We have been granted US and international patents for our layered technology for allowing for a passive visibility (i.e. headlights reflecting) with an active visibility (embedded LEDs refracting) to create a versatile product line for a multitude of industries.

Our first product was geared towards recreational walkers, runners, and cyclists. It featured a 60 custom color/function LEDs with a reflective outer layer to enhance the wearer's visibility from over 1-mile away. We launched the product in 2014 and continue to sell the product on our website (www.yousawme.com) and get involved with races, running clubs, and other community activities.

In 2015 we advanced that product line to include the brightest ANSI-certified product in the world. The Class 2 safety vest has 48 LEDs from 360 degree visibility....

In 2015 we advanced that product line to include the brightest ANSI-certified product in the world. The Class 2 safety vest has 48 LEDs from 360 degree visibility. The vest can selected from 19 solid-state colors, 18 flashing modes, 5 brightnesses, and 5 blinking speeds. This product, which meets ANSI certification even with the lights off has been designed for construction, airport, emergency responders (including law enforcement), event staff, plant and factory workers, and other workers that operate in dark conditions. The ability to customize the wearer is powerful for quickly identifying a personnel's job role and/or location from afar as well as to quickly enable the authority during a casualty drill or training.

We plan to develop unique products for other markets as we gain traction with the first products. Enhanced pet visibility solutions are in the pipeline; a motorcycle garment that transmits running, brake, and signal lights on the rider would change the industry; customized solutions for a myriad of occupations allow for visibility to be integrated into jobs where people put their lives in danger.

As an investor and mentor to the You Saw Me team, I've seen a lot of progress from them over the past year. They are really hitting their stride in both customer development and product development. The founders of this company are some of the smartest people I've work with and I have no doubt they will figure out how to win...and ultimately save lots of lives with their product.

Both Seth and Kevin are extremely intelligent individuals who are very eager to learn. Their company has developed a lot of traction over the last year. They are quickly becoming experts in their field and are very passionate about their product and company.
