One Girl’s Pitch on Clubhouse Landed Her a Deal of a Lifetime

Published

on

Kimi Weintraub is a rising spokesmodel, brand ambassador, and entrepreneur who recently launched her own company and has been marketing it on the exclusive app, Clubhouse. Her company, Kimi Weintraub Productions, underwent massive scrutiny when she presented it to a panel composed of high-profile celebrities and multi-millionaires in an event called Pitch Tank. The virtual event was inspired by the popular ABC show Shark Tank, which highlights various business pitches from budding entrepreneurs.

Fortunately, Kimi Weintraub was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the 2,000 people selected to pitch their business ideas. She gained the attention of at least five panelists who wanted to become potential partners just from delivering her one-minute pitch. Pitch Tank featured some of the original panelists from Shark Tank and other successful entrepreneurs, including Undercover Billionaire’s Grant Cardone, Kevin Harrington, and the founders of multi-billion-dollar companies such as Twitch, Tinder, and Netflix, among others. 

Being sixth in line to pitch and feeling the pressure of seeing the previous five business owners get rejected, Kimi mustered up the courage to pitch her idea delivering the most life-changing 60 seconds of her life. Once the pitch was over, a number of the panelists sought to partner up with Kimi, but the decision ultimately was up to her. After careful consideration, she partnered up with Akemi Sue Fisher, the one and only “Amazon Queen.” For some added backstory, Akemi Sue Fisher is one of the most trusted e-commerce brand consultants in the world, with a staggering track record of $2 billion in sales. 

Kimi’s venture was established during the onset of COVID-19 once she saw many businesses try to migrate their stores online. Due to those observations, Kimi Weintraub was inspired to build and grow her own company designed specifically for business owners looking to sell tangible products on their e-commerce and social media platforms.

Kimi marketed her brand casually since the start of the 2020 pandemic and did a second soft launch last month upon joining the new and exclusive Clubhouse app. In that short amount of time, she has been bombarded by incoming requests for her services. Simultaneously, she has been working as a full-time spokesmodel and commercial model. Kimi has worked with various brands and organizations, including Disney, Amazon, BMW, Audi, Invicta, the Orlando Magic NBA team, The Humane Society, and iHeartRadio, among others. 

She attributes her exceptional spokesmodel skills to her classical voice training gained from her acceptance to the exclusive Alexander W. Dreyfoos School of Performing Arts. Kimi was one of 24 applicants chosen to participate in its world-renowned Vocal Program from an auditioning class of over 1,400 students. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to train in classical voice performance, diction, vocal technique, and how to decipher the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA) proved invaluable for her. Her years of training paved the way for a career that suited her passion and creativity. 

Kimi sees the opportunity afforded by Clubhouse as a privilege that will help her pursue a career built on passion. She desires to inspire people with her achievements and hopes her story will motivate others to reach for their dreams.
