In your own words, how would you describe your company?

Epilog AI is built around our patented computer vision technology. We produce low-cost 8 K-quality cameras that can process images with clarity close to the human eye. Our primary application of that technology is SideCar, our self-driving retrofit solution for existing car owners.

What inspired you to take the leap and start this company?

I developed and patented a new method of machine vision. It was a system that exceeded human capabilities. For example, it produced an image with 50x the clarity of a modern iPhone. I knew this was a unique opportunity to leverage this technology, so I started Epilog.

Who is on your team and how did you come together?

We contract out most of our routine engineering work, so it’s a small group. Four people are on the management team, including my son Lance, whom I’ve been working with since 2015.  Everyone at Epilog is inspired to use technology to make a product that could have an impact on people’s lives.

What does the competitive landscape look like, and how do you differentiate?

There are many companies focused on self-driving technology, but very few are working to address the market of existing car owners. Our SideCar product caters to this segment specifically and is also priced at a more accessible level. Most people think of self-driving technology as something high-end and out of reach, but SideCar shows that this is a solution for all drivers, not just new car buyers.

What is your plan to generate revenues in the next two years? What do you project these revenues to be?

We just made our initial version of SideCar available for sale to the public. Currently priced under $1K, this is how we expect to begin our revenue generation, and we intend to scale those sales and operations quickly.

Do you already have potential customers ready to use your product?

Yes, our waitlist for SideCar was over 500 people before we made the product available, so people are already excited to get their hands on our technology.

If we talk again in 12 months, which milestones will you have achieved?

In 12 months, I expect us to have gone through our initial inventory for SideCar and begun initiating our next order to scale operations and Epilog’s reach.
