September Business Pitches and Networking Night at Rev

September Business Pitches and Networking Night at Rev

One of our main purposes here at Rev: Ithaca Startup Works is to foster entrepreneurship events for the community. Today, we are hosting an evening of networking with six presenters pitching from 6 p.m.to 9 p.m. at our temporary location on the Ithaca Commons. The event was made possible through the efforts of Ithaca Venture Community and Sponsors.

Update: We are pleased to announce the Small Business Administration (SBA) arrived to hand over a check representing a $50,0000 grant awarded the Women’s Entrepreneurship program: Passenger to Pilot!

The six presenters:

Josh Yank – Yank Technologies, a company that builds systems to enhance the charging of electronics through wireless networks.

Carlos Suarez – Truxx, a service that connects customers with small or nonexistent cars to a truck near them capable of moving their large item.

Jim Lee – Travelsee, collecting and providing analytics for museums and other cultural organizations to identify customer needs and increase engagement and produce better branding.

Shirley Brown – Follow Through Game Changing Coaching, a mentor and motivational service that “moves people from ‘someday if only’ to realization of what they want.”

Megan Pugh – Think Topography, a company that builds marketing systems for clients to connect their values to their brand, their brand to their customer, and their actions with their objectives.

Tal Cohen – Bali Craving, catering and bakery offering Mediterranean cuisine and indulgent desserts. Currently in the stage of recipe creation and packaging trials for their first retail product, Jar: Licious – gluten free dessert mixes.

We are excited to see these six prospective companies find mentorship through Rev and other STSA business incubators and make empowering connections through events, such as this one and through both the Rev and the Ithaca Venture Community networks.
