The Gadget Guy
Steve Greenberg, a world renowned expert on the subject, author of Gadget Nation, incredible TV personality, and one heck of a nice guy, will be sharing his vast knowledge of the Gadget world, including how YOU can cash in on his monthly segment on the Today Show. That’s right, that’s THE, NBC’s Today Show with Hoda & Jenna.
Steve and I go way back to when I first started booking speakers for ISSF even before I was the President. He impressed me with his genuine love of gadgets and their inventors. I mean the man lives and breathes the stuff. He does dozens of TV shows all over the country. As you would expect, even if you just get on a local show, the exposure for your invention could catapult you to instant success.
This is Very Important. It doesn’t matter if you are pitching your product to Steve, a retailer, a potential licensee or an investor, make sure it is relevant to the project. These are all very busy people and Steve is very specific about what he is looking for but in general, if an investor only invests in high tech, then pitching them a kitchen gadget will just tick them off.
Next, always follow their procedure to the letter. Steve is looking for a low resolution photo. So sending him a high quality video because You think it really shows off your product better does him no good and will get you rejected. It is a very fast process. So I recommend putting your pitch package together now and start following where he posts the new requests. When the shoe fits, Jump in it.

Steve has spoken at our regular meetings several times and has always been very informative as well as entertaining. Some of the gadgets he finds are thought provoking, others incredibly funny, while still others would invoke the phrase What The Heck Is That? which was probably the inspiration for his new YouTube game show by that same name.
As he explains, it’s sort of Shark Tank meets What’s My Line? Check it out here https://bit.ly/3fm0lt1 to watch episodes of the show click on the arrow next to the word YouTube on this home page. Once you are on that page, you can subscribe so you get notified when new shows are available.
