Think smart kitchen isn’t hot yet?
Think again. SmartyPans, coufounded by the sister-brother team of Prachi and Rahul Baxi, will appear on Innovation Nation on Saturday, February 25th, on most CBS affiliates across the US. The show, hosted by Mo Rocca, is described by CBS as a series that “showcases present-day change-makers from all over the world who are creating solutions to real needs.”
The showing on Innovation Nation continues the momentum in what been a good year so far for the smart cooking startup. The company, which appeared at the first Smart Kitchen Summit in November 2015, was on stage at CES with Techcrunch and also appeared at the AI+ show in Santa Clara in January. They’ve also been nominated as a smart home finalist for the Innovation World Cup at Mobile World Congress.
However, those were just warmups for their first national TV show debut tomorrow on CBS. While Innovation Nation probably doesn’t give the same intense sales burst an appearance on Shark Tank might, it will be a nice sales opportunity nonethess and SmartyPans is ready: Their site is already offering a $40 discount for viewers of the show.
