Culina is a San Francisco-based Io T and home automation company.
Kent Mc Clure and his team set out to make the kitchen a safer and more energy-efficient place for the family after a tragic fire struck his own kitchen in late 2012.
Thankfully, no lives were lost and everyone in his family made it out safe and sound, but Kent couldn’t help but wonder With decades in the industrial design space, Kent knew he had the knowledge and the industry contacts to set out to improve upon home automation devices for the kitchen with a solution that not only made homes safer, but also cut down on energy consumption and the associated costs. Since that time, Kent and the Culina team have made it their mission to completely revolutionize the home automation and Io T space with innovative, AI-powered technology.It’s a quintessential gathering place where families and friends come together to break bread, be merry, and make memories.But the kitchen is also where tragedy often strikes due to misuse of appliances.Whether it’s remotely turning on the coffee pot after getting out of bed, turning off the stove if it was accidentally left on via smartphone, or switching on the crockpot before getting home from work, Culina is purpose-built to deliver unrivaled convenience and peace of mind.With the ability to set energy usage caps on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, Culina helps homeowners stay within their monthly utility budget and save energy in the kitchen through more efficient use of the dishwasher, refrigerator, freezer, stove, and other common appliances.With this round of funding, our objective is to ramp up hardware manufacturing, improve software UX and UI, expand our sales and marketing efforts, and fulfill pre-orders in time for the 2017 holiday season.We are currently seeking a M Series B capital investment that will give us the financial flexibility to achieve these goals. It’s enough to make even a stalwart startup founder throw in the towel before they’ve even begun.So, with that in mind, here are four sample business plans from the Startups community that we think really stand out from the crowd.Compatible with all existing brands that plug into standard two or three-prong wall outlets, Culina creates an entire network of Wi-Fi-connected kitchen devices.The Culina App allows users to remotely monitor the status of and control all devices connected to our Smart Plugs.
