Get 10% bonus shares! Waverly Labs is now offering Owner’s Bonus

9 days ago


We’re excited to announce that we’re now offering an Owner’s Bonus! That means you can get 10% bonus shares when you invest in Waverly Labs.


Here are some FAQs about the StartEngine Owner’s Bonus:


What is the StartEngine Owner's Bonus?

The StartEngine Owner’s Bonus allows investors to:

  • Earn a 10% bonus in shares on their investment when investing in participating companies on StartEngine—not just Waverly Labs!

  • Learn about new bonus-eligible launches via email notifications.

  • Get a 20% discount on the seller’s fee when trading with other investors on StartEngine Secondary.

  • Unlock exclusive access for the first seven days of new launches from StartEngine Collectibles, including wine, memorabilia and more.

  • Receive priority on the waitlist when investing in oversubscribed companies.


How does the Bonus work?

You will earn a bonus for any shares you purchase in participating campaigns. For example, if you buy 100 shares at $1 per share in a company, you will receive 10 bonus shares, meaning you’ll hold 110 shares for $100.

There are no transaction fees on StartEngine’s investor trading platform StartEngine Secondary, but StartEngine charges sellers a 5% commission. With the Owner’s Bonus, investors get a 20% discount on that commission and would be charged 4% instead of 5%.


How do I get an Owner’s Bonus?

You buy it! The Owner’s Bonus costs $275 annually.


Note: prior to October 1st, the Owner’s Bonus was a perk associated with StartEngine’s Regulation A+ campaigns, and you had to invest $1,000 or more in StartEngine itself, or make a subsequent investment in StartEngine if you were already a StartEngine shareholder.


Have more questions about the Owner’s Bonus? Learn more about it here!


If you were waiting to make your investment in Waverly Labs, this is the perfect time to do it with only 5 weeks left in our campaign!

Our biggest order so far! Only 30 Days left to invest in Waverly Labs!

10 days ago


The countdown begins! Only 30 days left to invest in Waverly Labs!


To kick off the countdown, we have some exciting news to share. We just finalized the sale of 120 Ambassador Interpreters to a school district in Texas! The school district plans to use Ambassador Interpreters to help educators and administrators improve communication with their bilingual families. More specifically, they’ll be used during IEP (Individualized Education Program) meetings, where the school evaluates the need for special education services for a student. 


Aside from celebrating a large sale (and we are!), we’re mostly looking forward to hearing about the impact that eliminating language barriers will have on this community! This is the perfect example of what we envisioned when we designed the Ambassador Interpreter. 


Typically, when people think about a language translation device, their first thought goes to travel. But we saw an opportunity beyond that. As a team mostly made up of immigrants, the vision for eliminating language barriers in day-to-day situations was always a clear one. 


This partnership is more than a sale—it’s just the beginning.


Reminder: Our CEO and co-founder Andrew Ochoa is hosting our first Weekly Town Hall tomorrow at 3pm ET/12pm PT! He’ll be ready to answer any questions you may have about investing in Waverly Labs. Register here.


This investment is speculative, illiquid, and involves a high degree of risk, including the possible loss of your entire investment.

94.3% of investors would consider re-investing in Waverly Labs

about 2 months ago


We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: Feedback from our community is at the center of everything we do. That’s why we reached out to our Reg A+ campaign investors to get their thoughts on what we’re doing well and where there’s opportunity for growth. 


Not only did we get actionable insights, but 94.3% of investors said that they’d consider re-investing in Waverly Labs. That’s the best compliment we could receive. It confirms what we already knew: Language barriers are a major challenge in business that can be overcome with our technology. It also tells us that our investors trust that we’re capable of solving this problem. 


Rest assured, we don’t take this responsibility lightly. Here are a couple of our key takeaways:


  • A vast majority of investors mentioned our cutting edge technology as the reason for investing. Staying at the forefront of and continuing to drive innovation in live translation technology will always be our top priority.

  • Many expressed interest in becoming brand ambassadors and staying more informed about our upcoming plans. We recently opened a private beta test to our investors for a product we’re developing. This is the first in a series of opportunities we’re creating for our investors to contribute to Waverly Labs’ success.


Thanks again for your continued support! As always, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out to us at support@waverlylabs.com.

How we crossed the finish line to $10MM in sales

2 months ago

Last week, we shared that we crossed $10MM in lifetime sales and some of our past highlights that helped us get to where we are. This week, we’d like to share the details of the final push that got us there. 


As we ran our monthly numbers at the end of June, we saw that we were so close to hitting $10MM in sales and set the goal to do so in July. There was only one problem: Historically, July is not a good sales month. Between 2016 and 2020, our gross sales saw an average decrease of 21% from June to July each year. This is an industry-wide trend for retail and DTC brands as shoppers are typically on vacation and spending less time shopping. So we had some work ahead of us in order to reach our goal.


Here’s what we did:

  • Kicked off the month with a 25% off 4th of July Sale. We promoted through our email list, social channels, and shifted our monthly ads budget to increase impressions during the sale.

  • We did some price sensitivity testing. After the success of the sale, we permanently dropped the price by 10%. We’d had some hypotheses that our price wasn’t fully optimized yet, so we took this opportunity to experiment. 

  • We ran our first tests in audience segmentation through our email channels. We increased email open rates by 233% and our click rates by 67% in one of those segments. 



The results:

  • During the sale, we saw an 846% increase in sales WoW.

  • For the whole month, we saw an 116% increase in sales MoM.

  • Excluding the sale, we saw a 19% increase in sales and a 43% increase in conversions MoM.


What we learned:

  • While the sale clearly boosted our numbers, the price drop following it continued to sustain higher conversions. Though it’s still a small sample size, it does imply that our audience has some degree of price sensitivity and we will continue to test it.

  • Our email list is a powerful tool—it brought in 40% of our July sales. We’re continuing to develop our audience segmentation strategy more and more each month.


There’s still so much more to do and we can’t wait to dive deeper into our marketing strategies as we continue to grow our brand. As always, we welcome questions or feedback from our community. Please reach out to us at investor@waverlylabs.com.


If you haven’t invested yet, now is the perfect time to do so. We have some exciting developments in the pipeline that we can’t wait to share with our community. 


If you’re on the fence, check out our most recent webinar with one of our lead investors Michael Casella, founder and managing director at Partnership Capital Ventures. You can read about it or watch the whole thing here.

Waverly Labs crosses $10MM in lifetime sales!

3 months ago


As of last week, we have officially achieved over $10MM in lifetime sales! What a journey it has been! As we look toward what’s to come in the future, we can’t help but look back on some of the milestones that got us to where we are today.


  • Creating the world’s first translating earbud, Pilot, in 2016.

  • Launching a crowdfunding campaign and becoming the third most funded tech campaign on Indiegogo, raising over $4.4MM!

  • Raised $1.7MM through Indiegogo and equity crowdfunding to develop the Ambassador Interpreter, a translation device designed for professionals and teams.


We can’t thank you—our investor community—enough. We truly couldn’t have gotten here without you. Your continued support allows us to keep pushing the limits of translation technology and finally eliminate language barriers!

If you haven’t yet, now is the perfect time to invest. We have some exciting projects in the pipeline that you won’t want to miss out on!

Product Updates: The value of customer feedback

3 months ago

Listening to our customers, investors, and followers is at the core of who we are as a company. 


We’re constantly seeking feedback and we’ve been fortunate to have an engaged community ready and eager to provide it every step of the way. Many of our decisions, from developing the Ambassador Interpreter for the professional user to the monthly features we release, are direct results of what we’re hearing our customers want and need to effectively break down language barriers.


This month’s new features are a perfect example of that. 



  1. Recent Languages allows the user to access their most recently used languages quickly and easily, streamlining the user experience and getting to the conversations faster.

  2. Natural Pause gives the user more time to breathe or think without getting interrupted by the speech translation, more closely resembling natural speech patterns. 


Read more about our new features here.


We’re thankful to have built a community so invested in continuing to improve our product. It tells us that we’re working to solve a worthwhile problem and that we’re well on our way to doing so—with your help. 


With all that said, if you ever have any questions or feedback, we want to hear from you! Reach out to us at support@waverlylabs.com.

Can you believe the year is almost over? We sure can’t. We’ve been busy this year and it’s paying off. 

As the world starts to open again and people get back to traveling internationally, we’re starting to see sales pick up as well. In Q2, we saw a 79% increase in sales compared to the same time last year—a welcome indication that business is getting back on track.

And we’re not stopping here. We have big plans for Q3 including new product features, a new sales channel, and beta testing a brand new product!

New checkout option & sales channels live!

4 months ago


We’ve made it even easier for our customers to experience the Ambassador Interpreter by adding Amazon Pay as a payment option in our online store!

Amazon Pay makes it simple for millions of customers around the globe to checkout using information already stored in their Amazon account. Not only does this serve our customers by making their checkout process smoother, but it also has the potential to increase our online conversions.

In addition to this, last week we launched our Instagram and Facebook shops. These two new sales channels means our organic content can become shoppable, allowing our social media community to shop the Ambassador Interpreter without leaving the apps! 

We’re very excited about these new additions to our sales and marketing strategy. We’ll keep you updated as we see how these tactics impact our sales!

Increased Mic Range in Listen Mode

5 months ago


In Listen Mode, you can now select which mic to use to pick up voices, increasing the range and accuracy. Prior to the update, the Ambassador Interpreter mics picked up voices in about a 6 ft. range of the Ambassador Interpreter. 


By selecting an external mic, you can move it about 30 ft. away from the Ambassador Interpreter unit (the length of a bluetooth connection) and still pick up voices within 2–3 ft. of your external mic. This effectively increases the range of Listen Mode to over 32 ft.—a 5x improvement! Just in time for travel restrictions to lift and for you to tour your new international office in person (finally).

Save & Share your sessions with Transcripts!

New US Warehouse!

It’s been almost two months since we officially set up our first US-based warehouse in Utah! Bringing our products stateside (where most of our customers are located) allows us to provide faster shipping times at a lower cost. We began shipping from there in late March and we’re happy to report things have been going very smoothly thus far!


Over-ear Comfort and Accurate Translation

5 months ago

Another positive review for the Ambassador Interpreter! This time from Eileen Brown at ZDNet, who was particularly impressed by the over-the-ear design that is not only hygienic when sharing, but also accessible as it allows use with a hearing aid device. And, of course, she highlighted the fast and accurate translations.

We’re thrilled to have been named a Staff Pick for Translation Headphones by International Business Times! Here’s what they said:


“Waverly Labs' Ambassador Interpreter is at the forefront of consumer personal translator, getting many things right including it's form factor, it's various translation modes and how fast it responds to speech. If you're needing a personal interpreter at your next business meeting and want something more professional than what your mobile phone can do, I recommend the Ambassador Interpreter over other devices that are on the market.”

  • When exiting a session (in Converse, Listen, and Lecture mode), you’ll now be prompted to confirm you want to leave. This is to ensure that you don’t accidentally end a session and lose all the text from that conversation. A simple change to give you peace of mind—love to see it!

  • You can now switch the language direction from within Listen and Lecture modes, making it easier to to change languages on the fly! No need to exit the current conversation and start all over again in a new language. 

  • The Ambassador app is now more accessible with improvements allowing VoiceOver users to navigate the app more easily, and the ability to control text size directly in the navigation bar without leaving Converse mode.


What’s up next? We’re actively working on the ability to save and export transcripts and the return of continuous conversation mode. More details coming soon!

The Reviews are in!

The reviews are in and we couldn’t be more excited! The pandemic has certainly come with its challenges, one of which was getting reviews. Due to social distancing and lockdown orders, unless the reviewer had someone who spoke a different language in their household, they couldn’t test the Ambassador Interpreter. But as the world slowly opens up, the reviews are beginning to trickle in—and we’re very pleased with what they’re saying.


Here are two of the most recent ones:

Over $1MM Invested and Climbing!

We officially raised over $1MM! Thank you for your continued support! Whether it was investing, buying the Ambassador, or just sharing with friends and colleagues—we couldn’t have done it without you.


We’ve had a busy month, including hiring a new VP of Marketing & Communications, Brisa Freitas. Her years of experience in marketing consumer electronics will be pivotal in continuing to expand our reach. It also means that with someone dedicated to our communications strategy, we’ll be providing updates much more often.


Stay tuned—we have exciting news to share next week!

Nearly $1MM Invested and Product Updates!

7 months ago

Hi everyone,


We’re nearing the $1MM milestone after just six weeks of our Reg A+ offering being live, and that is a great pace to be as we begin scaling up our production. Welcome to our new shareholders and investors!


This week, we are excited to share some product updates we rolled out in February:

  • Developed new features, such as:
    • Increased the standby time, improved battery life, and implemented the new video tutorials inside the app.
  • Made some UI/UX changes, including:
    • Removing the “host” logic so users can more quickly setup a conversation, and now device settings are saved in the smartphone / tablet for quicker setup.
  • And, established a roadmap for future product features: 
    • Re-implement “continuous” mode, release our firmware update with increased speech recognition accuracy, add saved transcripts, remote conferencing, and digital audio (TV, film) translation.



We also released a long list of improvements to the translated languages. First, we’ve added missing dialects and genders to the voice models for:

  • English: Great Britain, Australian, Canadian, Indian, Irish
  • Spanish: American, Mexican, Latin American
  • French: Canadian
  • Arabic: Egyptian
  • Portuguese: Brazilian
  • Korean: added male voice
  • Hebrew: added female voice
  • Thai: added female voice
  • Vietnamese: added female voice
  • Greek: added female voice


Secondly, we made major improvements to some of the speech synthesis models, so you hear more naturally sounding voices! By using neural text-to-speech, these voices should be nearly indistinguishable from human speech:

  • Hindi: male / female
  • Chinese: Mandarin (male / female), Cantonese (male / female)
  • Hebrew: male / female
  • Thai: male / female
  • Vietnamese: male / female
  • Arabic: male
  • Greek: male / female
  • French: Canadian (male)


And lastly, we updated the Portuguese translation model to distinguish between different dialects of Portuguese (Portugal vs Brazil).


It was a busy month! You can read the full details here: https://www.waverlylabs.com/blog/february-2021-ambassador-update


Thanks everyone for becoming a part of our journey. We’ll keep you updated on things to come.


All the best,

Waverly Labs Team

Hi everyone,


It's great to see this many people have already made reservations for our biggest investment campaign. We haven't even begun taking investments and the response has already been fantastic.



Once we begin taking investments, we plan to quickly begin ramping up production and staffing as we move from seed to growth stage ahead of 2021. The response for Ambassador Interpreter has been incredible so far - in a matter of weeks we already sold out of the first batch of a few thousand units, our Q4 sales over Q3 have increased over 51%, and we've not even done with the quarter! We quickly went back into production for the next batch of units which will be ready in a couple of weeks, and we have more information coming soon so make sure to stay tuned.


It's time to throw some fuel on the fire!
