Hybra In Bid For Sound Band Super Bowl Ad

We want to see a Sound Band™ ad during the Big Game in 2014, but we need the help of innovation lovers, and their friends, to help us get there.

Hybra Advance Technology (Hybra) has announced its progression to the second round of Intuit’s Small Business Big Game contest. If successful, Hybra will use the 30 second ad to promote its unique Sound Band™ headset, which produces audio without using speakers.

In making the announcement, the Michigan-based technology development company has thanked those who have already voted for it, and encourages them to continue to do so, daily, and to spread the word via their favorite social media platforms.

“The competition is very much consumer-votes-based, and it’s not a ‘vote once and its done’ system.” said Ryan Wells, Managing Director of Hybra. “Supporters can vote for us every day, and Intuit has made it very easy to share via various social media platforms; naturally we encourage our supporters to do just that!”

“We want to see a Sound Band™ ad during the Big Game in 2014, but we need the help of innovation lovers, and their friends, to help us get there. Making it into to Stage 3 means that we will be among the Top 20 contenders for the prize - and that’s where we want to be!”

Supporters can vote for Sound Band on the Intuit Small Business Big Game website (https://www.smallbusinessbiggame.com/MI/Hybra-Advance-Technology-Inc/386770).

Crowd Support

Hybra has already received a groundswell of support for Sound Band™ through a Kickstarter.com crowd-funding campaign. Almost 4000 people from all around the world recognized the potential of the cutting-edge technology in Sound Band™, and they pledged a total of $547,125 to help bring the innovative headset to market.

“For a small company this was a huge result, and it has allowed us to develop and manufacture a truly innovative product that will change the headset market forever,” said Mr. Wells. “And now, with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to advertise Sound Band™ during the Big Game - well, it will take us into a whole new audience.”

“The support of those who love innovation and new technology has been invaluable, but to be able to reach out to an audience of the size that the Big Game delivers - well, that will be priceless.”

“To help us move to the next round, we are encouraging people to vote at https://www.smallbusinessbiggame.com/MI/Hybra-Advance-Technology-Inc/386770 and to share the link on that page with their friends, encouraging them too to vote for us.”

Voting in Round 2 of the Intuit Small Business Big Game competition ends on October 13.
