Description

We're excited to announce the last Startup Standup of 2017 hosted by the Cuyahoga County Public Library!

Do you or someone you know have an idea for a product? Come to Startup Standup, pitch and receive feedback from experts and the LaunchHouse community. Whether it's just an idea or a growing business, Startup Standup is for entrepreneurs of all stages!

Please note that this is not a formal pitch competition; it is a platform to develop ideas and support other entrepreneurs.

Interested in pitching? Email marybeth@launchhouse.com to register for a 7-minute slot.

The evening will be limited to 5 pitches, so register early! Please don't worry about bringing a pitch deck—just come prepared to quickly present your idea and brainstorm with the community.

Here's how the evening will go:

5-5:30 pm: Happy Hour - Grab a drink and some snacks and network with other entrepreneurs. Non-alcoholic cocktails will be served by local libation-free cocktail company, Mocktailz.. You'll have the opportunity to tour the space throughout the evening of the event, and to talk about the library’s programming offerings and equipment available.

5:30-6:30 pm: Startup Standup - There are FIVE open slots limited to 7 minutes per person. Once your 7 minutes is up, a bell will ring and we will move on to the next slot. Please be sure to register in advance for your slot! After the pitches, Monique Rich, founder of Mocktailz, will share her story and startup journey with us.

6:30-7 pm: Happy Hour - Continue the conversation with those who have suggestions and support for your idea. A tour of the space and opportunity to talk about the library’s programming offerings and equipment available will continue.

About Mocktailz

Mocktailz (http://mocktailz.com/) is a libation-free cocktail company that makes handcrafted non-alcoholic martinis with the base flavorings of alcohols such as Vodka, Brandy, Gin, Rum, Bourbon and Tequila. These beverages are for individuals to enjoy who mainly do not drink alcohol for whatever reason and would like to fit in at social gatherings without drawing great attention to their beverage of choice. This all stems from the owner, Monique Rich, being hit by a drunk driver years ago. She uses her talents as a certified event planner, caterer, and mixologist to come up with this special blend to serve a market that is overlooked within society.

Monique was featured in the Lyndhurst area News Herald in 2015, Channel 19 News with Jen Picciano in 2015, Cleveland Plain Dealer in 2016, and won the Best Non-Alcoholic Cocktail award in 2016 for Cleveland Magazine. She also had product placement in a few carry-out restaurants and bistros and is currently in the process of re-branding and re-structuring her company.
