Hi to all!

 

I am Andrius bruno Rimkūnas, co-founder of Monimoto, smart anti-theft GPS tracker for motorcycles. We are located in Vilnius, Lithuania. Whole team agrees the best dessert is a craft beer:D

 

Expectations are high, Carl:D In fact, we want to get better and more effective with CRM, funnels and automations. We are doing it with different tools at the moment. Being more educated would make us faster and more agile!

Hi Bruno! 

 

Looks like you have a great product! 

 

I've had my motorbike stolen and it was an absolute nightmare. It's a very big problem here in London and difficult to stop and track once stolen. A lot of times the thieves know exactly what to look for and where to look for it. 

 

Good luck!

Hey Andrius

 

Welcome.   Our IoT platform (GeoTracker)  provides the capbility to track their vehicles using an IoT GPS Tracker that gets affixed to the asset.    We haven't integrated with motorcycles although we should connect (ravi@mobitox.com) to explore synergies. 

 

Cheers

Hello Everyone,

 

My name is Donovan Wright founder of Guilde, super excited to "meet" all the great minds behind these companies. 

 

I'm located in Detroit, MI. Guilde is a FREE marketplace app that connects contractors with customers while streamlining the inconvenient administrative tasks within the renovation process such as vetting contractors, price quoting projects, scheduling the project and managing it to completion.

 

I'm pre-launch so I hope to get expertise on buidling a marketing funnel to get those early adopters.

 

My favorite desert is peach cobbler with vanilla ice cream.

Hello! My name is Andie Crosby.  I live in Santa Fe, NM.  I recently started a consulting company with two other partners called OvationLab. We provide expert consulting services for innovators, early-stage and start-up ventures, and health systems who are developing new products in the dynamic and rapidly growing functional and integrative health market. 

 

My expertise is marketing to practitioners, and I'm currently embedded in a start up client as VP of Marketing.  Calroy Health Sciences has developed a product marketed direct to practitioners called Arterosil which is the only product on the market that is clinically proven to protect and restore the endothelial glycocalyx (turns out to be really important in an age of COVID).

 

My goal is to really increase my capacity to develop and execute digital marketing strategies to reach both practitioners and patients.  While i have over 30 years of marketing experience - i feel I still have so much to learn on the digital side.  I'm very excited to meet and learn from everyone in this group.

 

my favorite dessert is any kind of cake.  and tequila.

Hello All ELEVATIAN, 

 

Let me practice elevator pitch here Smiley Happy

 

Vishal here from Dublin, Ireland. 

Representing 'TheDo' as a User-experience lead 

 

TheDo started in the month of April right in the middle of COVID19 restrictions/lockdown to support in delivering the groceries to the needful (Back then it wasn't called TheDO or anything than a WhatsApp number). It was simple Whatsapp-Bot interacting the needful people and I was delivering the grocery in under 60 mins. Now in June, I got a couple of hands joining the cause and to make it a smart technology platform

 

Looking at the future, we at TheDo would be creating a perfect ecosystem between store partners (independent, small to medium-sized), service partners (Operations inspired with UBER and AirBnB), and the consumers (They are everything). With the help of a faster, cloud-based platform, focusing on the consumer's behaviour to understand the store preferences, choices for items/groceries, and delivery locations using AI.

 

With the help of ELEVATE:

1. We aim to get pitch-ready 

2. Definitely and surely establish the networking with mindblowing advisors

3. Get our first seed-funding 

4. Be Ireland's FIRST real-time B2C grocery ordering platform 

 

Favourite dessert would have to be 'pastel de nata' and 'Banana muffins Made by my wife Heart '

 

I would like to thanks to @cpieri to making us part of ELEVATE !

 

Let's Elevate!

Hi All,

 

Glad to be here. We're a startup focused on Eliminating the Ticketing Service Fee you're charged everytime you buy a ticket to an event!

 

We've created the World's First Fee-Free Ticketing Platform, PromoTix that helps save money for event attendees and makes more money for event organizers.   It's backed with some incredible marketing modules (Which we call PromoJuice) and integrates with Spotify, Shopify, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Stripe, and many others.

 

Lately with COVID-19, we have been developing and are on the verge of releasing next week our newest product, PromoStream - which is a live event streaming platform that is ticketed like normal events - allowing event organizers to quickly monetize their online streamed events no-matter their audience size.

 

Our company is based in the beautiful US Virgin Islands (Ask me about how you can save up to 90% on your federal corporate and person taxes by moving your company here).

 

While we have spent quite a bit of time perfecting our product, we're reallying hoping to ramp up our sales and marketing teams in the next 6 months and we hope that ELEVATE can help us do that. We also hope to get in front of some investors looking to help us disrupt the events industry and turn the business model for ticketing companies completely upside-down.

 

We look forward to meeting more of you and participating in the workshops!

 

I will be eating chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, and any sort of dark chocolate while watching the master class videos!

 

Best,

Will Royall

Hi! 

 

I'm Kristina, from Vancouver, BC, Canada. I'm one of the co-founders of Spinndle: a K-12 social hub for student-led projects. We give students the tools and scaffolding they need to map out their own projects. We work with schools who have adopted 21st teaching styles like Design Thinking, Project-Based Learning, Inquiry. 

 

Unlike industry-standard "project management platforms" where student progress gets bottlenecked at the teacher, Spinndle's social hub allows students to build the future-ready skills that schools and future employers are looking for, as they collaborate, action on feedback, and share strategies with one antoher. 

 

We're hoping that ELEVATE will help us think outside the box. Education is a slow-moving industry, with marketing and business models still catering to traditional styles of learning. Since we don't fit those styles, we need to position ourselves accordingly! 

 

As for dessert.. right now I'm craving a slice of cheesecake.
