Since I first met you in response to Cyberknight marketing efforts six years ago, I have become familiar with, and intrigued by, the creativity and resources you bring to the table, as well as the potential synergy between us. My career similar to yours has always revolved around launching successful new products in the consumer, industrial and government domains. I am optimistic that the new product concepts, developed by you and under consideration by Rayovac, may offer our end users timely innovation and significant value. As you know, we are currently engaged in consumer stimulus research with yours and several other product concepts. Results will be forthcoming. Rob, I want you to know that I find you to be a wealth of innovation and ideas as well as an expert in the art and science of new product development. You possess the unique ability to define and analyze a market’s needs, isolate the problems and extrapolate product concepts with address the needs in that particular industry. Clearly this only comes from the type of experience and career path you have engaged in over the past 25 years. Lastly, I wanted to comment on your honest and straightforward approach in our business dealings. It has been refreshing to say the least.

I have known Robert Gold for the last eight years. After twenty plus years in high end financial services for major companies, I believe I have enough experience investigating good investments, and insight into the way people work, to know where money, especially my own, should be invested. I have invested in three of Rob’s invention based companies and all are progressing towards the goals he has set out for them. I know him to be a businessman of integrity and he has worked tirelessly on projects in which we are involved. I believe that Rob is an exceptionally capable project manager and can take any project in which he is involved to its best possible outcome. Rob’s creative talents are, in my opinion, second to none. He has shown me on numerous occasions that he can think “outside the box” to solve problems in both technology and project management.

I have also engaged Rob in a number of one-off projects for some of my other companies, including a firearms manufacturing, and tool design business, with great success. I am especially pleased with the added value of his Provisional Patent capabilities and his ability to work well with our IP attorneys on the final patents, both saving us money and creating significant protections in many cases beyond what our attorney could do. Rob’s intellect and capabilities only slightly exceed his enthusiasm.

“I have known Mr. Gold since taking on my position as the Manager of the AZ TechCelerator in Surprise, Arizona, USA. Mr. Gold and I have had the chance to discuss his views and suggestions about the AZ TechCelerator's operations, goals and future plans. He has made many valuable suggestions for aggressive tactics to bring new and innovative companies to our incubator. He has also created new concepts for services that could be offered by our facility which could increase the involvement of both industry and the community in the AZ TechCelerator. Mr. Gold's background speaks for itself about his ability to recognize valuable technological breakthroughs and the opportunities they present. During the time I have known Mr. Gold I have observed that he has the ability to easily interface with people at all levels of business and government. ln just the last year, Mr. Gold has twice been on the front page of our local newspaper, The Surprise Republic, in connection with the AZ TechCelerator. I believe that Mr. Gold's project management skills and his ability to multi-task in both technological and business environment would be an asset to any incubator organization.”

“I have worked closely with Rob for approximately two years on a variety of new product development campaigns. Rob is an extremely creative individual and excels at innovating solutions to real-world problems which create and capture economic value. He is skilled at determining capability gaps, evaluating market trends and performing technology assessments. These skills allow him to develop design concepts that meet verifiable consumer needs. Ultimately, his systematic needs-based approach to innovation captures legitimate value for the company in the shortest timeframe imaginable. Rob also possesses exemplary project management and interpersonal skills. In fact, his business acumen distinguishes him from inventors with a pure technical mindset. Rob understands that the ultimate goal is to generate economic value, and this is evident in every aspect of his daily business. He works with efficiency, efficacy and a relentless motivation to succeed. His positive attitude and optimistic outlook are extremely beneficial to a development team. He provides a spark of energy that seems to make everyone around him more productive. Rob also possesses an uncanny ability to manage and mitigate programmatic risks. For these reasons, I highly recommend Rob to corporations looking to develop new products.”
