100th idea will be pitched at Friday’s Early Risers
This Friday’s June 28 edition of Early Risers will mark 100 ideas pitched to the community through the platform.
Launched in July of 2016, Early Risers is a morning pitch series that connects entrepreneurs to the things they need most, like first customers, key employees, mentors, funding, and more. Each startup gets 10 minutes to pitch, then the audience gets 5 minutes for Q&A.
In the last nearly three years, 90% of startups have had an ask granted through a connection made at Early Risers. So grab a cup of coffee & a donut and find a place you can plug into Dayton’s startup community!
This month, you’ll meet:
Mike Sundermeier, cofounder of Recyclops Bot, a company building a trash can that uses AI to automatically sort recyclables from waste;
Billy Grill, creator of SB Connect, a new online platform designed to connect both established and aspiring small business owners to needed resources in their communities;
& Alex & Derek Van der Sluijs, brothers & cofounders of Foffee, their platform for fundraising through coffee branded to the school or organization.
Our June 2019 edition of Early Risers is sponsored by Leonardo Enterprises, a University of Dayton School of Engineering program that helps students launch tech-based startups. They’ll be bringing the coffee and eats to kicks off the 7:30-9am event.
Hope to see you @444 on Friday!
