This Smart Home Business is Also a Smart Business Idea
With 20 years of experience doing audio and video installations in homes on the Cape, Nantucket, and Martha’s Vineyard, Dan Curtis saw an opportunity to shift his gears and open a business focused on custom wifi and smart home solutions- Osterville WiFi & Smarthome.
He went to an EforAll Pitch Contest to cheer for a friend pitching his business and learned about an upcoming EforAll Cape Cod Business Accelerator. He decided to apply even though he had already been running his business for two years. Dan recalls, “I didn’t know how to market it and attract customers. I needed to learn how to get my name out there.”
He loved being with other EforAll Cape entrepreneurs, helping each other, and listening to their ideas and passions. “You feed on their energy. It keeps you excited and motivated,” he said. For him, his mentor’s support and advice made a huge difference in his business and became a key part of its growth.
After graduating from the program, his gross revenue more than doubled each of the following years! He would definitely recommend EforAll to anyone starting a business. “When someone is starting, if they commit to their idea, EforAll is fantastic to give you a leg up and the business background needed,” said Dan.
