Weekly Wrapup- Week 12

It’s hard to believe we just finished up our 12th week! As we get closer to Demo Day our cohort’s main focus is perfecting their pitches!

Tuesday we did our CEO stand Up catered by Adriatico’s pizza, then did pitch practice! Tuesday Night we had a meetup with Startup Cincy’s very own, Everything But The House (EBTH) a Cincinnati-based online estate auction! In the last five years – since EBTH brought on additional owners and executives in Andy and Jon Nielsen and Mike Reynolds and decided to expand – the company went on to raise more than $84.5 million in venture capital and is on track to break $100 million in revenue this year. Aaron and Nathan brought their friends Eric and Christine from Embrace.io for drinks and chatter at Union Hall. Embrace.io is a great partner of EBTH and we were happy to introduce them to all of our friends in the Cincy community. For a little background, they provide a full toolset for mobile monitoring performance optimization. In fact, they let you look up any user and see all the technical details for any session so you can understand the experience that the user had (slow, freeze, crash, missed bid, no image shown…) and what have contributed it (network call, memory, CPU, code issue, 3rd party code, etc.)

Wednesday: We did more pitch practice! (Everyday is Pitch Practice here at the Brandery!)

Thursday: Obe started filming for their commercial at Branderyhaus! We had so much fun and the puppies were adorable! If you would like to learn more about Obe check out this link: https://obedog.com/

Friday: We joined with Cintrifuse to throw a Happy Hour party on Union Hall’s rooftop to celebrate the companies currently in StartupCincy! This was to give everyone a chance to connect and network with one another. StartupCincy is bursting with accelerator activity right now! We have some classes like ourselves, Hillman, and the new Music Accelerator winding down and preparing for demo day while others like Founder Institute and UpTech are just kicking off!
