Eddy Home Pitches at Product Hunt Toronto

Zach Goldglas

Eddy Home was honoured to be the first hardware product ever demoed at a Product Hunt Toronto event on Thursday, November 9. Our very own Shkya Ghanbarian, Director of Sales & Growth Strategy (and insurance industry expert) took to the stage at Product Hunt Toronto’s Insurtech event to speak about the havoc that water damage can visit upon homes and condos. Product Hunt TO celebrates the most innovative startups in Toronto. The event focused on technologies in insurance.

Shkya’s demo included an actual water flow alert triggered by the Eddy IQ on display. This prompted the sensors to communicate directly to the IQ, automatically shutting off the flow of water through the unit. Customer service then called  Shkya’s phone live on stage to notify her and offered to dispatch a plumber to address the issue.

This was our first time attending Product Hunt Toronto. We found it to be an excellent learning opportunity to see innovative new products first-hand, network and learn from nearly 200 attendees, which included insurance professionals, brokers, and other tech companies.

“As our friends in the insurance industry say, ‘Water is the new fire’,” commented Shkya. “Product Hunt Toronto has created an amazing platform for local tech startups to promote their products and we’re both honoured and thrilled to be a part of that”.
