As we at CONNECT are getting excited about Most Innovative Product Awards 2017, we decided to catch up with some of our past MIP winners to talk about their MIP experience and where they are today. We will be featuring these conversations on the CONNECT blog.
Think you have what it takes to be the next MIP winner? Apply here!
Bixpy is a 2016 MIP winner. The Bixpy Jet is the world’s first and only portable, handheld water propulsion device. Every piece of technology that has gone into developing this product is ground breaking: from the electronic circuitries that control everything, to the design of the propeller. Even the way the system switches on and off has been researched and perfected to bring you one of the most innovative, yet intuitive device of its kind. We caught up with Bixpy to talk about MIP, current stages of product development, and-most importantly-dinner.
Why did you apply to MIP?
MIP is such a well recognized award and so well respected. We felt even being nominated would be an honor.
What was your favorite part about the MIP event?
MIP was so well organized and a great opportunity for us to display our products. The short film on the companies was very moving and the whole experience with the photo shoot and presentation was one of the best experiences I have had. The evening dinner was amazing. Hard to say a favorite part…but I think dinner was my favorite.
What is one accomplishment/success you have had since you received the award?
Winning the award was definitely an amazing event for us. Since the award, we have gone into full production and we’re only a few weeks away from delivery.
Thanks to Bixpy and good luck with upcoming delivery!
