Swiftmile Spotlight: Beach Box – Keep your valuables safe at the beach
You should be relaxing at the beach, not worrying about getting your phone or wallet stolen. For today’s Swiftmile Spotlight, we are thrilled to work with Beach Box, the innovative company that aims to keep your valuables safe while you go enjoy the water!
In 2019, Austin Igein, an entrepreneur with a background in risk management and insurance set out to solve this problem. After completing the market research and R&D, the first Beach Box was born. This mini ice cooler-shaped lockbox launched its successful pilot in Miami Beach, FL. Its sleek design and security features awarded Beach Box with 2 patents that would help launch its StartEngine campaign.
“The beach has always been one of my favorite places to be, but I always worried about my personal belongings being stolen,” said Igein. “This takes away from one of life’s greatest attractions. During my visits to the beach, I saw families, friends, and couples all experiencing this problem and set out to solve it.”
The process works similar to rideshare scooters and bikes, users rent a Beach Box though through an app that locks and unlocks it as well. Its security system boasts GPS tracking of the lockbox, an alarm, cameras, and an insurance policy through State Farm for your stolen items. Additional built-in amenities include phone charging and a music speaker.
The ultimate goal for Beach Box to become a household name. Hopefully beach-goers will tell their friends, “let me get us a Beach Box for the day” or “I’ll Venmo you my half of the Beach Box later.” The first step for this vision is to get Beach Box out there on local advertising networks, specifically Swiftmile, whose digital-out-of-home presence is prevalent to the residents of Miami Beach.
“One of our commitments to our city partners is to be showcasing up and coming innovative startups on our Digital Out of Home Network,” said Joel Martin, Swiftmile’s VP of DOOH. “I had the pleasure of meeting Austin and was blown away by his presentation, his passion, and his commitment to his product. We take a lot of pride in using our platform to help companies like Beach Box reach new audiences.”
