SAN FRANCISCO, DATE – DotCom Magazine today announced that The BenjiLock has been selected to join its annual Impact Company of The Year List For 2021. The DotCom Magazine Impact Company of The Year 2021 Award celebrates the most important segment of the economy – America’s privately owned companies whose Founders, CEOs and Amazing Team Members are making an important impact in the economy.
DotCom Magazine has honored BenjiLock as making a positive difference in an incredibly unique year. The DotCom Magazine 2021 Impact Company of The Year Awards celebrates shape shifting entrepreneurs and their companies. When a company makes an impact, not only are they helping their clients, but they are also helping the world become a better place.
Andy Jacob, CEO of DotCom Magazine says, “We appreciate the selfless commitment that leaders and entrepreneurs make to their brand. We are honored to award great companies our DotCom Magazine 2021 Impact Company of The Year Award. At DotCom Magazine, we believe entrepreneurs are the heartbeat of the world in so many ways. We believe it is a world where risk takers must be lauded, saluted, and respected. 2021 is an incredibly unique year in so many ways. Companies have so many ways to make an impact, and that’s why each company’s unique impact is so important than ever before. Our award winners have courage and an unyielding passion to grow and contribute in incredibly unique ways.
Jacob continues, “In 2021, everyone talks about uncertain times. In 2021, we believe it is the leaders of impactful companies that stick their head up above the crowd, and say “we can do this”, “we will get it done”, “we will make this happen”, “we are willing to pay the price, and “we will turn uncertainty into opportunity. Our award winners are selected for leadership. Their company leads and their business system leads, we consider our award winners lamplighters. We believe we need more courageous entrepreneurs bringing light into the world by building compelling companies that make a difference.
“It’s a distinct honor to be recognized among such a respected group of privately owned companies that are moving the needle on business strategy and making significant impact on the economy. We’d like to thank DotCom Magazine for recognizing how important it is to align profits, strategy and vision with positive impact that extends beyond board rooms and balance sheets,” said Robbie Cabral, Founder & CEO, BenjiLock. “We’d also like to thank all of the organizations and individuals we’ve had the privilege of working with over the past year. In the spirit of partnership, BenjiLock’s work is truly a shared collective that is empowered by our network of beloved clients and partners – who inspire business excellence every day and every step of the way.”
About The BenjiLock: In 2014, Robbie Cabral was down on his luck. “I was working my normal job and, sadly, I got laid off,” he tells Andy Jacob, CEO, of Dotcom Magazine. Cabral continued, “The same day I got laid off, my daughter was born.”
Then, a simple idea turned his situation around: While at the gym, he wondered “how come there is not just a lock that you can open with a fingerprint, but also with a traditional key,” he recalls. It would be a convenient and safe upgrade from commonplace, analog locks, he thought. That idea led him to invent BenjiLock, a patented product that does just that. He took his invention, which won accolades at the annual Consumer Electronics Show, all the way to ABC’s “Shark Tank,” where he landed a $200,000 investment from Kevin O’Leary in exchange for 15 percent equity in the company.
Applauded as “the essence of the American Dream” by Shark Tank’s Kevin O’Leary, Robbie Cabral is no stranger to the Edison Awards, taking home the award for the category of ‘Consumer Sensors and Biometrics’ in 2018. His invention, BenjiLock, is widely renowned as one of the most impactful modern-day innovations for personal security, using groundbreaking fingerprint technology. Robbie’s innovations took the prestigious 2021 TWICE Picks CES Award for its brand new BenjiLock Fingerprint Bike Lock, Gear Brain’s Best Tech of CES 2021 for its Fingerprint Sport Lock, and Digital Trends chose BenjiLock as one of the Editor’s Pick Best Smart Locks and Top Tech CES 2021 awards for its Fingerprint Door Lock
Based in Los Angeles, California, and founded in 2014 by inventor and entrepreneur Robbie Cabral, BenjiLock is redefining the personal security experience using hybrid technology with the consumer in mind. After its recent Shark Tank success, Robbie Cabral landed Kevin O’Leary as an investor with a 15% equity stake in the company. Next, he secured a licensing partnership with Hampton Products International, the leader in security and hardware innovations and makers of BRINKS locks, giving the startup over 30 years of manufacturing and production experience. Today, BenjiLock’s fingerprint technology is expanding into a portfolio of products—an upcoming line of bike locks, next-generation of padlocks, drawer closet, and cabinet locks, and a brand-new line of smart home door locks.
