Unlocking Memories: How Kinnect's Innovative App Is Reshaping Family Storytelling

Kinnect combines the best of digital innovation with the human warmth of a family story. As the following angel deck teardown shows, the Kinnect plan aimed to make it much easier to keep our history alive in a digital scrapbook. By creating a service to share and save family moments, they aimed to make it easier to keep our history alive and connect with others.

The Essence of Kinnect's Innovation

A Revelation Through Slides

Kinnect’s angel deck is sentimental and insightful – there to help you ‘record connections with loved ones, not just photos’. If you look at these slides carefully, you'll see just how far Kinnect were able to take their concept.

Addressing the Heart of the Matter: The Problem Slide

At its heart, Kinnect addresses our common problem – loneliness and the fear of disintegrating stories. The problem slide on the deck forces the viewer to confront the silent epidemic of disconnected people, using hard numbers and a humane narrative to paint the picture of the social vacuum Kinnect seeks to fill.

The Impact: More Than a Memory

Kinnect isn’t just talking about a problem, it’s also talking about an impact – how personal this problem is to the children Kinnect impacts, and the need for Kinnect to exist. By giving investors two major points of view on Kinnect, problem and impact, the appeal becomes much stronger. It gives investors a window into how Kinnect has the potential of changing things in a deep way.

Navigating the Execution

An Untapped Competitive Edge

It is a testament to Kinnect’s innovation that both video and audio can be captured alongside a timestamp; a stepped-up advantage that the company could drive home with a vision of how every story can be saved for later.

Bridging the Breaks in the Story

While much of the pitch deck is full of immediacy and identification of a clear problem, the storytelling leaves gaps that the listener needed more details to satisfy. More context on go-to-market strategy would have helped, as well as concrete milestones, and a deeper dive into specifics of the viability of the subscription model.

The Founder's Vision: A Personal Journey

The personal story in Kinnect’s pitch deck gives its company and vision an anchor that other images cannot match. Far more than mere humanisation, the heart story embeds in the narrative something that seems a unique advantage: a real, sustained and utterly authoritative motivation at its helm.

Areas Ripe for Enrichment

Crafting a More Convincing Team Narrative

The deck shakes a little on the ‘Founder’ slide. If you were to dig a bit deeper into the track record of the founder – one that relates more directly to Kinnect’s aspirations, that would add some more meat to the bones, making the founder’s track record appear like a golden ticket to a Shark investor.

A Vision for the Market: The Subscription Model

Finally, the next step for this start-up is to demonstrate how such a large subscription revenue will be realised. Detailing consumer behaviour, giving precedents from the market, and explaining how these start-up’s products are different from the alternatives (which are all free) would better allow them to frame their competitive advantage for the investors to appreciate.

Traction: Transforming Intent into Action

The ‘Traction’ slide is trying to illustrate momentum, yet it falls short of convincing readers that Kinnect is any more traction-full halfway through the pitch than it was at the end of the first slide. Making this slide more targeted to show engagement with users, solicitation of feedback, or perhaps even revenue to date, would greatly increase the strength of the story, turning the optimistic outlook into something believable.

Exploring the Uncharted: Kinnect's Competitive Landscape

Understanding the competitive landscape and distinguishing itself from other platforms by emphasising what they don’t do would help Kinnect establish itself not only in the market, but in the minds of families around the world.

Understanding Advantage in Kinnect’s Context

The word ‘advantage’ in Kinnect’s process of discovery captures both its relative market advantage and its inherent value proposition. Kinnect’s advantage is not only in what it can do; it is also in the possibility that it can rekindle the soul of family history and storytelling in our digital age. Leveraging this advantage means having a grasp not only about what Kinnect can do, but why it matters, at a deep, universal level.

But as Kinnect grows and becomes more sophisticated, its greatest value could be its ability to weave technology and storytelling together, piecing together memories to pass generations, and creating a fabric that ushers the future forward to the present, all through the touch of the human hand. Kinnect would then become less of an app, and more of a portal for history, connection and the embrace of human touch.
