    Don't think you'll make it with that video, sorry. Not crapping here - constructive criticism. What would you use money for: "Ideas"? "tip of the iceberg"?. Come on, you've seen the show, they'll eat you alive!

    Here's my feedback:

    You're gonna have to give firm numbers. Cost to produce, cost to sell, profit margins. Competitors? Customers? Sales? You should not be standing amidst trash in your video, you should be showing how this product can be used and where. These guys don't care about the environment as much as they care about the money they can make. This isn't a charity pie-in-the-sky hail mary giveaway type of show, it's a feasible business type of show. Although I think your idea is great, I don't like your pitch and think you can improve it.

    (just giving you my honest advice based on watching this show, watching people fail selling their idea. I applaud you for your ingenuity and your idea, and the product you've created)

    i have firm sales, product is excepted and approved in canada/usa/world (fully tested by civil engineering agencies) patent pending on process. no competition as i'm the only one making this material. profit margin is very good as i control pricing. plus i have a few aces up my sleeve such as building all the equipment, no debt, the only approved material in certain civil applications, etc. some details i have to keep under my hat though until the show.
