Hello Everyone - I'm Jennifer and I'm the founder of Trader Gypsy based in Olathe, Kansas.  If you have ever been to Disney and discovered the world of pin trading then Trader Gypsy is your perfect tool.  We are an online trading platform for Disney pins that allow traders to easily make trade offers with each other as well as identifying pins that traders are searching for to make a successful match.

Hello everyone I'm Thom McGuire one of the Owners of American Brewers Purveyors of Fine Mead and Beer.

We are a restart of a company that was let lapse by the previous owner.  

Though the company has been around since 2012 we purchased the company in 2019 and are just now getting things back into some sort of shape.  It's been an uphill battle but one that we are commited to see through to the end.

We are currently self funded and owe no money to anyone, which has made growth slower than we would like but is the reason we survived the shut down in Michigan where lots of the other breweries in the state have struggled or have closed thier doors.

I look forward to Elevate 2020 and what I can learn from the Masterclass.

Happy Friday Everyone!


My name is Dennis and I am the COO & Co-Founder of a software known as Patturn. We're based in Fort Worth, Texas. 


Patturn is a platform to help you manage and sell customer returns.


If you've ever seen a Youtube video of guy that purchases "Amazon Returns Pallets", this is what I'm referring to!


He might be able to process 1 or 2 pallets, but if he were to manage 20 to 30 pallets or even scale up his operation, he will need a dedicated system in place to manage all of it.


I hope that ELEVATE will help connect with more startups/entrepreneurs and find better methods of connecting with customers as well!


My favorite dessert is chocolate chip cookies!


I look forward to working with you all.

My startup - enables the producers and wholesalers in the food value chain to reduce time spent on admin tasks and helps them achieve greater visibility in front of new potential customers. 


I am a formerly HubSpot Partner, but running a agency style business vs. a "classic" tech startup is completely different challenge. So i am hoping to learn as much awesomeness for my new role/company, as i did in the Partner Program.


My favourite dessert is new danish strawberries with creme and a dash of sugar 😉

My favorite dessert is "halo-halo", a Filipino tropical dessert. Imagine a bowl of crush ice, with banana, sweet yam, all kinds of sweet jelly, sweet beans, egg tart, milk, many more, with ice cream toppings, mixed all of them for a delightful dessert.
