HEY GRINDERS...IT'S PARTY TIME!!! July is our global party month. Yeah, we get to let our hair down and have some fun. We're going to be celebrating our 7 month anniversary and have some great things planned.
We're holding our inaugural "Startup Showcase Funtacular" featuring 4 local young startups who will pitch the audience for prizes. They have to do so in unusual ways without the use of the dreaded PowerPoint. Join us and see how creative they can be.
Each startup will have one hour to meet with as many attendees as possible and "sell" their company using only an Executive Summary, their interpersonal communications skills, and small highly creative and unique props and visuals (NO POWER POINTS). Then each startup will do a 3 minute "speed pitch" from the stage.
Using our real time, on-line feedback/voting app, the audience gets to provide real time feedback, comments, and suggestions during the event then will immediately vote for the winners. Prizes will be awarded including one for the most creative presentation.
Join us, it's going to be a lot of fun.

We're holding our inaugural "Startup Showcase Funtacular". John Q. Party will be the MC. During the social hour 6 local startups will have 1 hour to meet with as many attendees (one on one/small groups) as possible; using only interpersonal skills and their Executive Summary to “sell” their company and their needs including a problem with which they need help.
The start-ups are to get really creative and develop visuals and props (NO POWER POINTS) that help sell them and their company. The idea is for them to have a lot of fun putting together their presentation and pitch.
Starting at 6:30pm, each company gives a 3 minute “pitch” from the stage using persuasive skills and non-traditional physical visual aids (no Power Points). A 3 minute+/- Q/A session will follow. Timing will be strictly enforced using the “Gong Show” format. Any follow on Q/A and feedback can be done one on one after the event.
Throughout the event, the audience will have the opportunity to provide real time feedback, comments, suggestions, and constructive criticism to each company using our feedback, polling, ranking app. Following the “pitches”, the audience will provide a final “vote” giving each company a score on how well they did throughout the evening. Votes will be tabulated and ranked highest to lowest. 1st-6th. A special prize will be given for the most "creative" presentation. Winners will be announced. Everyone will win something. No one leaves empty handed.
Each company will receive all audience feedback after the event.
