Synopsis

The story of Xtreme Bar Technologies (X.B.T Inc.) and the L.E.D SHOT RODTM begins in 2011 with a chance meeting of two men in the Caribbean.

During his tropical vacation, Michael Haseley met Vincent Edouard who was at the time a bar manager and cocktail mixologist.

The two men became friends and one day, while visiting Vincent’s house, Michael noticed a contraption that attracted his attention. It was heavy, ugly, and rather an awkward object. Vincent explained that it was the ‘L.E.D Shot Glass Rack’ then went on to tell Michael of his passion for creativity, design, L.E.D lighting, the bar industry and entrepreneurship. Michael was impressed: He also had entrepreneurial ambitions.

Still, at first sight, they hardly seemed compatible as working partners. Michael, a Texan in his mid-forties was a respectable U.S. army veteran, who had since graduated with a major in marketing, economics, finance and entrepreneurship. Vincent, in his late thirties, originally from France and of Caribbean descent had graduated with an MBA and has a background in hospitality and beverage management, having worked for large and small hospitality, entertainment and leisure groups.

Yet they were both driven by a personal passion for creativity, a goal of self-motivated entrepreneurship, as well as dreams of success.

After a couple of weeks Michael’s holiday came to an end yet the pair decided to keep in contact and it was during the course of those email exchanges, online chats and virtual brainstorming sessions to discuss businesses ideas that the idea to set up a business was born.

They decided on something different, innovative and a concept that had never been tried before. They contemplated a number of ideas until they settled on the L.E.D SHOT RODTM, whose name is taken from its shape and futuristic features.

Vincent will himself admit that at first he was reluctant to form a partnership with anyone, due to perhaps “a natural inner French pride”. However business is what America excels at and Vincent recognized that two heads are always better than one in a start-up. The pair then decided to become business partners.

X.B.T Inc. was founded a year later, a start-up that would embody their mutual passion for creativity, design and entrepreneurship.

They both knew it would be difficult to launch a start-up from opposite sides of the globe, so the decision was made to unite their forces a soon as possible in the same country and city. It took time, yet that opportunity materialized in 2013, when both men were united in Bangkok Thailand.

Both recent transplants to a foreign country with corporate jobs, it wasn’t easy to maximize time together, but they were determined to complete the task and bring the product to market.

They ran trials, made prototypes, wrote business plans, developed and refined the concept.

Some would say it was just a pair of friends who maybe spent too much time in bars; yet those who truly know them and their story will tell you that their path until now has been made up of sacrifices, hard work and dedication, and that this has shaped the people they have become.

In short, they’re a pair of old-school entrepreneurs who decided not to take the easy way out.

They’re a team of dedicated people with a strong work ethic who know that success isn’t a birthright, yet believe that with hard, purposeful work, it is inevitable; a duo that has discovered a “small’ niche market; that possess a clever and unique business idea, as well as a passion for the beverage industry and a dream of success.
