From longing for just a little more television as a kid to catching a few minutes of TV during his workout as an adult, Vitaly Kirkpatrick had the same problem — no sound. So he created CloviFi and founded CloviTek.
CloviFi, an award-winning wireless audio transmitter, is the smartest and easiest way to listen to any TV using Wi-Fi and the listener’s own headphones anytime and anywhere.
Our founder, Vitaly Kirkpatrick, found his entrepreneurial spirit and passion for problem-solving when he was just a kid.
As a foster child, he went door-to-door singing Christmas carols to raise money to buy a TV. But his foster mom didn’t allow TV after 10 p.m. So he used a blanket fort and the mute button for his late-night viewing.
CloviTek’s app combines cutting-edge AI technology and unparalleled user experience, overcoming the limitations of current solutions like closed captioning and Bluetooth.
It gives business owners a new way to connect with their customers. CloviTek has the power to increase brand awareness and harness the potential of AI and data-driven analytics. We’re more cost-effective than existing solutions, offering quality sound without the high price tag for licensing, equipment, wiring and installation.
Really cool, right? That’s exactly what CloviTek means. Clovi = cool in Ukranian/Russian, and Tek = technologies. And that’s our mission. Providing cool technology to enhance the quality of listening—and the quality of life.
FUTURE TARGET MARKETS INCLUDE:
Additional target markets include restaurants, airports, colleges, business lounges and consumer home use.
CloviTek falls under a number of large markets that continue to grow:
