This new equity crowdfunding campaign is selling the stock with the same terms and in the same price range (50c to 55c per share, based on timing) as last year’s equity crowdfunding campaign. You are investing in MaestroConference (approximately $1MM/year revenue as of 2016), which includes the VoiceVoice product, at the same price previous investors bought into MaestroConference without the VoiceVoice platform.

"VoiceVoice events bring influencers and other stakeholders into purposeful conversation around important topics, allowing participants to express themselves and take concrete action."

The Technology Leader for Conversations that Change the World

Invest in VoiceVoice

"Billions of people spend countless hours online yet often feel disconnected. In the face of global challenges, today's online “conversations” seem like a hopeless forum for real change. 


Our company’s mission is to light up the world with the power of purposeful, large scale conversations- that is why we exist. Everything we’ve done up to this point and the 8 million+ participants we’ve previously hosted using our MaestroConference technology have been steps towards this goal.


With the new VoiceVoice platform, we are creating a much more convenient, scalable, and self-reinforcing conversation with tremendous “viral” potential


We know that conversations speed learning, build relationships, and spur action.  And we remain grateful hearing from participants about how their lives have been touched, and committed to enabling organizations to more effectively build movements and change the world."

"Why I Like VoiceVoice"

"Thousands of companies apply to 500 Startups, but we rarely see a client list of the caliber that VoiceVoice brings. Now their plan is to systemize customer acquisition, which we’re absolutely in favor of. If successful we believe they could generate both real-world impact and high return value to investors." -Marvin Liao, Partner at 500 Startups

"VoiceVoice makes it easy to have real conversation with investors, clients and supporters of both non-profits and for profits, to deeply engage them. Brian Burt, their CEO, is one of the most conscious, conscientious, and honest CEOs I’ve ever worked with. It is rare to find a CEO consistently mindful of keeping his eye on the prize, in terms of financial performance, big vision, and social impact." -David Berge, Managing Member, Underdog Ventures



What We've Achieved So Far

Frequently Asked Questions 

What does VoiceVoice do?

VoiceVoice provides a software platform for purposeful conversations that are both intimate and guided for each participant, yet totally scalable to thousands or millions of millions of people. The platform provides all of the inputs necessary for a small group of people to have a meaningful and powerful conversation- specifically any ground rules, the introductory material, inspirational content, instructions or questions for conversation topics, etc. And the technology is designed so that those conversations can be viral.

Who do you see purchasing the VoiceVoice platform, and why would they purchase it?

We divide our target market into 4 different categories, based on who the participants are:

  1. Employees: uses include Corporate training, diversity training, vision/values/mission, strategy implementation. Job titles include: Training, HR, Talent Managements

  2. B2B Networks: uses include Associations, Conferences, B2B lead generation. Job titles include: Community Engagement Managers, Programs Director, Membership Manager

  3. Students: uses include Online course programs, MOOCs, bootcamps, business trainings with experts/authors/solopreneurs

  4. Citizens/Consumers: uses include political mobilization, health and personal growth, community/city interest, family reunion or class reunion, common interests

How did you get these amazing customers?

From the beginning, we've been very clear about our product and how it is so different from competing products. We’ve also been upfront about our values to make this world a better place and our purpose to be part of the solution in support of great organizations, and this company mission has definitely helped us stand out as a brand. 


Almost immediately upon launch of the company, we were able to get our foot in the door with some amazing organizations because of our unique product and mission, and those connections have continued to open more doors for us ever since. 


Finally, conversational products are inherently viral. That is, every month, thousands of new people have conversations on our platforms, and if they like that format, or if they work with an organization that could use it, they become our customers. By innovating, we’re able to leverage current customers into future ones.

What are you going to do with the raise?

The most expensive thing about a launch is getting the word out, and that’s the focus of our spend. Whether it’s writing marketing copy, talking to people or engaging the influential types of organizations that this new platform will benefit, much of the raise is for sales and marketing personnel to do the work of getting in touch with these very influential prospective customers. We're also allocating some of the raise to technology enhancements and working capital so that we can be flexible to the needs we hear from customers.

What is MaestroConference? Where does it fit in?

MaestroConference is the first technology platform that VoiceVoice Inc. developed, and it is the clear leader in conferencing technology for these guided conversations. With a traditional conferencing platform, everybody has to be there at the same time - the host, any star talent or surrogates, and every participant. There's still a big niche for that. 


However, we want to address the fundamental limitations of traditional conferencing where audience members leave an engaging event but are not able to share the event with their network. Hosts miss out on viral potential as well as other potential audience members that can’t make the conference due to scheduling.


VoiceVoice is designed so that conversations can be viral. With VoiceVoice, the host records and sets up the conversation flow once, while live conversations take place over days, months or years.  Each small group joins a live video room while navigating through recorded guidance.  Participants introduce themselves, see inspirational content and move through a series of relevant discussion topics, host Q & A or learning activities.


The host sequences group output, such as a wiki, idea board, social post, or page for donations.  And if they enjoy the experience, participants can say "Hey, that was great! I'm gonna tell my friends." and that conversation is still available for the next group whether that's the same day or next week or next month. Hence, the conversation’s viral potential.

What is the social impact that this investment will have?

We believe that the conversations we have shape the world in which we live - from government legislation, to corporate governance, to organizations that work for social transformation. Our technology is designed to facilitate these conversations to bring the collective intelligence and wisdom of ALL of the stakeholders to the table. The conversations are more interesting and thus more effective when people care - and frankly, people do care about this world we share. So we’re proud of the many positive changemakers that we support with this technology.

What about your patents and intellectual property?

Our most valuable company asset by far is our team. Each of us have now engaged deeply with our mission and our role within it, obtaining valuable experience and expertise along the way.


We already have three patents fully awarded and we have engaged a patent expert so that we can stake the claims before some of the VoiceVoice platform features are publicly released. We've been successful with this in the past, and we believe we'll be able to again successfully patent some of the unique things that we're bringing into the market. 


It’s worth pointing out that our philosophy is not primarily a patent defense. which basically entails suing other companies, but we see this company winning by being the best at what we do. We want to be known as delivering great value and to go out and win customers. 


Finally, we have over 180,000 names on our contact list to communicate with, many of whom are highly influential people and brands. This list would be considered by many to be another form of intellectual property. Please see our client list for a few of the more well-known organizations that have become paid customers.

How do you as a company put money back into the pockets of investors?

There are at least seven ways that early stage ventures can eventually pay money back to investors. The first of the methods listed below is how we plan to pay investors back; the others we see as realistic possibilities. None are guaranteed.


  1. We plan to grow the company and generate healthy profit margins, which would enable us to pay cash dividends quarterly. Indeed, for investors of $1,000 or more, we offer an “accumulating dividend” which is either paid in cash or accumulates in the investor’s name, to be paid in full before any cash distributions are made to the common stockholders (i.e. founder and team). Find more information about this accumulating dividend under the question, “What sort of dividend do you plan for, if successful?” below.
  2. Another relatively likely “cash out event” is through the acquisition of the company. There are many explanations for why a large business might acquire a small technology company: the technology, customer list, revenue stream, team, patent portfolio, as a defense against a competitor’s acquisition, as a product to cross-sell, or for any other number of strategic reasons. In the event of an acquisition, if the purchase price equates to a stock price that is substantially higher than the investor’s original stock price (which is very common for early stage investments), the amount of cash the investor gets out of the deal could be significant – hence the “cash out”. We’d carefully review and consider each offer for acquisition.
  3. The SEC has acknowledged the need for regulatory reform to create better markets where investors in private companies can sell their stakes when needed, perhaps in what’s called a “Venture Exchange”. As outlined in testimony to Congress from the SEC: “The SEC is considering innovative approaches that appropriately balance the needs of smaller companies for efficient secondary markets [where investors can sell their stock] and the interests of investors in smaller companies”. If such an exchange were established, early stage investors would have the ability to sell their equity, possibly at a substantial premium, to other investors.

(Continued)


4. During a subsequent financing round, the company may have stronger demand for securities than what is available in that round. In that scenario, it is common for the company to offer current investors the option to sell their stock to those wanting a larger stake at the new (usually higher) price for that round.


5. Investors may sell their stake to other investors in the company, or to private individuals, so long as the shares weren’t advertised publicly. This would become easier when the company is paying a cash dividend, since the dividend yield becomes a benchmark price for the shares.


6. The company itself may repurchase the shares. We do not currently anticipate repurchasing shares because we will focus exclusively on growth for the next several years. Once we’re profitable (especially if profit exceeds our ability to spend it wisely on sales and marketing), this could be an option. Public companies frequently buy back their own stock.


7. Finally, the company may IPO on a public stock market. This could be a fantastic option for the investor and team, and a sign that we have successfully grown the company to our revenue goals or beyond.


It is important to point out that regardless of how the stock is converted back into cash (in any of the above scenarios), our investors have certain preferences which give their stock a higher priority and financial advantages over the stock of the founders and employees. This is by design - we only plan to make money with our stock when investors are making money with theirs. Read about these investor preferences under the question, “What are the “investor preferences” in the security you’re offering?”.

What sort of dividend do you plan for if successful?

If, as planned, we grow and have a healthy profit margin, the decision on a dividend that might make sense for the company and therefore for investors would depend on too many factors to list here. However, for your consideration we’ve included a hypothetical scenario which illustrates how we could pay our investors’ annual dividends of 50% or more if we hit certain goal assumptions.


While stories of an early investor profiting wildly in a successful technology company are common, it’s rarer to hear about large dividend returns. This is because venture-backed companies are generally focused on massive exits; as such, dividends are almost never paid since any profitability is invested in ever-greater growth rather than paid to investors. If we are successful and become profitable, we don’t plan to “gamble that all/at any cost” in the name of a massive exit. Rather, we think that repaying investors a dividend is actually a very worthwhile path. It’s important therefore to consider a specific set of assumptions to project what such dividends might look like if we successfully hit our goals.


Our calculations show that if we hit 50% of our $100MM revenue goal, have a 30% profit margin (which is not uncommon in a SAAS business at scale), pay a full 20% of that profit in taxes (although many companies manage to pay much less), have 30% dilution to reach that goal, and pay 50% of the profit to investors while saving 50% for future growth, then the annual cash dividend would be 55%. This means an investment of $1,000 today would yield $550 in annual dividends. Of course, none of those assumptions are guaranteed, but this shows a “success scenario” with dividends rather than only upon an acquisition or IPO.

What are "investor preferences" in the security you're offering?

We have designed our investment vehicles to put investors’ financial interests before those of the common shareholders (i.e. the founders and team).


First of all, to every investor (of any amount) we offer a form of “insurance” as follows: in the event of an acquisition, merger, windup, etc., when cash is distributed, crowdfunding and other cash investors recover their entire original investment before anything is distributed to the team (common shareholders), even if that means the common shareholders get nothing. We, the team, believe so strongly in our growth potential that we’re willing to forgo any distributions until investors are fully repaid.


How does this work? In the event of a cash distribution, investors receive whichever amount is greater between: their “normal share” (each share of stock gets equal amount), OR their original investment (minus any dividends already paid in cash, or share thereof shared only among cash investors).


Moreover, for investors of $1,000 or more, we also offer an accumulating dividend equal to 7% annually of their investment. Every year we either pay that dividend in cash or it accumulates in the investor's name. Again, before we distribute any cash to common shareholders, we must pay that accumulating dividend first (in cash). With this preference, investors of $1,000+ get both the accumulating dividend AND their regular share along with other shareholders.

Who are your competitors and how are you different?

I spoke with the SVP of a global training company a few weeks ago (Sept 2017), and she was recently asked to train 10,000 managers across the US in small group trainings, but she knew that the associated flights, travel time, and daily consultant rates wouldn’t be feasible for the client.  She was eager to get her hands on VoiceVoice -and clearly live training is a competitor we want to take on.


Many organizations, on the other hand, are spending to engage a particular segment or vertical. They may be sponsoring conferences, purchasing search or social ads, or spending on agencies aiming for a viral video.  When we show them how appealing the right invitation is, their online outreach marketing spend becomes our primary competitor. 


Finally, for corporate training, there’s a lot of software for people to watch videos, take quizzes, and somehow make it interesting enough (or simply required) so that employees complete it.  It’s crowded, but we are eager to take that market on, having heard people’s satisfaction with online self-training tools (and knowing that even a dent in this market could reward our investors deeply).

What's your biggest risk? What keeps you up at night?

I've had the privilege to be around these types of conversations that we support for many years, deeply through MaestroConference and even beforehand. There are conversations in this format where somebody is providing some guidance but the real juice happens in small groups. I have no doubt that this conversation format is absolutely underutilized globally.


What keeps me up at night is the question, “Am I doing enough to get this benefit out there in the world?” I feel it's my personal purpose, independently of this organization.  And it's the stated purpose of this company. I feel we’re on the cusp of something that is so exciting with the VoiceVoice platform, something that has so much potential.


We want to “win the internet” in 2018, meaning to explode on the scene of people's thoughts, the way other great innovations like Facebook, Slack, YouTube, Twitter have caught on quickly in the past.  


One of the central ingredients for scaling this is capital, and so we appreciate you considering this.

Details on Investment and Perks

Investors in the first $50k of this round will receive a 10% stock bonus.

This means you'd own 10% extra shares to sell in the case of an acquisition, IPO, or other liquidity event, and the effective yield on the accumulating dividend is 7.7% if you invest $1000 or more.  Management may choose at its discretion to increase the $50k limit, awarding this bonus to additional investors, by announcing it on the offering page. Investors that qualify will receive the additional bonus shares from the Company's transfer agent after the close of the offering.

*VoiceVoice is offering convertible preferred stock at 55c per share.  This stock has the advantages of ownership, including the potential financial benefits of potential dividends;  a payout upon acquisition; and the liquidity after an IPO (among other potential ways investors profit). It has two differences from the stock the founders and team hold.  First, it's non-voting, so unless you convert it to common stock (which is an option), you don't vote on the board of directors or other regular business. Secondly, the "preference" includes an additional financial protection:  in an acquisition or windup, ALL proceeds for stock holders go first to you and other "preferred" (cash) investors, before anything goes to common stock (which the founders and team hold).  That is, until you have been repaid 100% of your investment, NOTHING goes to founder and team shares.  We are THAT confident in this, and believe in putting investors first.   Additionally for investments of $1000 or more we offer an additional financial incentive (below).

A Letter from Our CEO

Thank you for your interest in VoiceVoice- the company that previously built MaestroConference.


Conversations really do change lives, and I’m proud to have been a part in building a platform that has enabled great conversations.


A woman once grabbed my hand- while my wife stood there wondering what the heck this was about- after learning about my work.  She said something like:  “Please look me in the eye because I want you to take this in.  Your technology [MaestroConference, from VoiceVoice] changed my life.  I live in rural California, and I really was alone.  I didn’t know single person who shared my values.  But I met these two friends [pulling them over]- we travelled here [to Oakland] together, and we met in a breakout, and rest is history..  So please - always remember the real people that are touched by what you have done.”


The fact is, people crave connection. And not just as friends, they want learn, strategize, and take action with the people who share their values and interests.  Whether in a course, political movement, interest group, or corporation: real conversations are educational, inspiring, and rewarding.   


We have had a single mission from the idea of this company to today: to allow, at scale, those very special conversations where every single person fully participates with their voice, while moving forward together.  So far, that’s been on a platform where everyone must join at the same moment (in whatever timezone)-  MaestroConference.


With VoiceVoice, we’re now incredibly excited to pursue our mission in a way that can organically scale to millions, rather than thousands, and people can participate over weeks or months, not at the same moment.  To create something absolutely unique (again) and that could truly change the way we think of what’s possible online.  Online experience doesn’t have to be about passively watching, or typing comments to strangers.  I hope you saw our movie (at the top), to get a glimpse of what we have in store.


You can help build VoiceVoice, which we hope “wins the internet” in 2018, and you’d own a piece of it, if you decide to invest today.  We hope you do, at the level that’s right for you.


Together, let’s awaken the world to the power of purposeful conversations.


Thank you for your consideration and support.


Brian Burt

We've Raised 50% of Our Funding Goal- Thank You!

14 days ago

One full week into our crowdfunding campaign, we're already at 50% of our funding goal even though we haven't announced to our main lists yet. So thank you, StartEngine community, for your early support! Also note- investors in the first $50k of this round receive a 10% stock bonus.

Here are a couple other exciting things that happened this week:

  • Added these impressive new customers (on MaestroConference): Gavin Newsom’s Campaign for Governor of California, Women's March chapters in Los Angeles and Indiana, and Columbia University.

  • Heard from our tech team that an initial, basic version of the new VoiceVoice platform should be ready for internal demos in 1-2 weeks (you can preview a simulated demo of the new platform here). 

If you haven't already, please consider investing in our equity crowdfunding campaign. https://www.startengine.com/voicevoice


Based on early feedback, we want to clarify the VoiceVoice & MaestroConference investment. This new crowdfunding campaign is selling the stock with the same terms and in the same price range (50c to 55c per share, based on timing) as last year’s #1-rated crowdfunding campaign (albeit directly rather than through a SAFE agreement). 

Investors now get the benefit both of the MaestroConference business (approximately $1MM/year revenue as of 2016) plus the potential profits from the new VoiceVoice product, at the same price previous investors bought into MaestroConference without the VoiceVoice platform. Your investment in VoiceVoice means you have also invested in and benefit from MaestroConference. 

Your support will help make it possible for us to get this new platform into the hands of influential organizations from our customer list as our early adopters. I feel we’re on the cusp of something so exciting, something that has so much potential with the new platform. 

We want to “win the internet” in 2018, meaning to explode on the scene of people's thoughts, the way other great innovations like Facebook, Slack, Airbnb, Twitter, YouTube have caught on quickly in the past. One of the central ingredients for scaling this is capital, and so we appreciate you considering this. This will make the company that much more effective in its mission and social impact, and ultimately, more profitable and valuable. 

Having early momentum for the campaign is crucial before we launch this to our list next week. So even just the minimum investment helps a lot with that momentum.

If you have any suggestions, questions, ideas for spreading the word, please feel free to leave a comment for us on our profile below. 

Thank you sincerely in advance,

Brian


P.S. Even if you can’t invest, if everyone following us on StartEngine shares the campaign with their networks, that would get us a long way to the traffic goal of 13k unique pageviews we'd need to hit our max funding goal. So please share with your social media, email contacts, Facebook groups, etc.
