Are You Protecting Yourself From Wi-Fi and Cellphone Radiation?

Although there were five solid finalists that pitched at the recent #GetStartedLV event in Las Vegas, there could only be one winner to walk away with the $15,000 prize package. Cox and Inc.com hosted the event, which crowned R. Blank and his startup EM Shield the victor after a hard fought pitch battle.

Simply put, EM Shield makes products designed for people to reduce their exposure to harmful wireless radiation from sources like cellphones and Wi-Fi signals. The World Health Organization has actually designated said radiation as a class 2 carcinogen, and Sarah Evans had a chance to see their business model more clearly.

Currently Blank’s startup has 3 products on the market:

  • An iron-on pocket patch that lets you carry your cellphone safely.
  • A laptop skin, which sticks to the bottom of your laptop and protects your reproductive organs from radiation.
  • A series of 6 x 6 tiles that block radiation and can be placed anywhere in your home, like on a wall between your bedroom and wireless router.

They also demoed a prototype at the event, a baby blanket that protects infants from these radiation sources.

The entire event was an exciting opportunity for all the entrepreneurs involved: the chance to get into the community, refine your pitch, and meet inspired people is never a dull moment.
