FeedbacK was selected to participate in the Springboard Enterprises Dolphin Tank® program on January 27th at Launch Workplaces in Rockville, MD 20854 . The program is a “helpful feedback-driven” pitch session designed to provide entrepreneurs with actionable insights from knowledgeable people. The Dolphin Tank isn’t about Sharks or Dragons or a competition for the best idea, it’s about channeling the expertise of the people in the room to provide connections and advice to help entrepreneurs take the next step.
FeedbacK is one of 15 finalists in the U.S. round of the Global Entrepreneurship Competition hosted by Dao Ventures in collaboration with Dongsheng, a leading Technology and Science Park in China, and Arlington Economic Development.
Dongsheng is one of the leading accelerators for technology and environmental companies. More than 65 companies applied for this round of the competition.
The FeedbacK team was in Washington DC to participate in DC TechDay. DC TechDay hosted 200+ of the area’s hottest startups. The event allowed FeedbacK‘s CTO to demonstrate our technology to an audience of 3,000+ including investors, press, early adopters and users.

The Chick-fil-A Leadercast began like most great ideas do: with an innovative leader and a simple vision.
That leader is John C. Maxwell, and his vision in 2000 was to create a different kind of leadership conference. One that was affordable and accessible to leaders from every background. It wasn’t long before that vision became a reality, and in 2000, the Maximum Impact Simulcast was born. GiANT Impact later began producing the event and now has teamed up with Chick-fil-A to bring this world-class leadership content to more leaders than ever before.
In 2010, GiANT Impact celebrated the tenth anniversary of what is now known as Chick-fil-A Leadercast and what has grown into the premier leader development event for leadership growth at all levels. Text and video posted from taken from website www.chick-fil-aleadercast.com/about/history/

Hampton, VA – March 13, 2013: Arcphor Strategy is pleased to announce and introduce FeedbacK Enterprise, LLC. as their newest client. FeedbacK™ Golf, their flagship product, will employ their propriety method to provide instant visual and audible instruction on how to improve your golf game through the use of an iOS or Android smartphone. Swing, record, and receive instruction to improve your golf swing in real time without the expense of hiring an instructor.
Arcphor Strategy is pleased to introduce FeedbacK Enterprise, LLC., one of the newest and most buzz-worthy startup companies to open their doors in the Norfolk – Virginia Beach region of Virginia, as their newest client. FeedbacK Enterprise, LLC. is a how-to analytics company that has developed a proprietary method which fuses video, audio, and complex analysis to provide improvement techniques from a PGA Golf Pro directly to the FeedbacK™ Golf user based on their individual golf swing.
Do you have a passion for golf but just can’t seem to improve your game? Lessons from a local golf pro are always an option but are expensive. Books and instructional videos are good but don’t offer the same individual attention needed to improve your swing (and you definitely could not take either of those for reference on how to correct your swing when you go to the driving range or play a round).
Your smartphone and FeedbacK™ Golf provide the perfect solution. Using their proprietary method, FeedbacK™ Golf records your golf swing, compares it to a professional’s golf swing and provides certified PGA professional instruction on how to improve your game. FeedbacK™ Golf is scheduled for release in August 2013.
FeedbacK Enterprise, LLC. sought out and selected Arcphor Strategy for their branding and website development expertise in preparation for the first product release.
“We are delighted and honored to work with a company such as FeedbacK. They bring a fresh attitude and passion to the business community and their users. Their patent pending mobile application addresses a large gap in the active community,” says Tim Ryan, President of Arcphor Strategy.
An updated website is scheduled for an April release. For more information visit and like FeedbacK™ Golf on Facebook (www.facebook.com/FeedBackGolf)
