Nursing bras, wellness elixirs and recycling on deck for final Early Risers

November 30, 2021

Registration is live for the Dec. 3 morning Early Risers pitch event, slated to be the final event in the long-running morning community pitch series.

Pitches will start promptly at 8a in The Square at The Hub, 31 S. Main St., Dayton. (We will also stream the pitches via zoom.)

You’ll meet:

  • ¬†Sarah Kallile, founder of Lunnie, re-inventing the nursing bra;
  • ¬†Melvin Andrews, founder Gem City Recycling, working to build a top-in-the-nation LED-recycling center right here in Dayton;
  • and Anikka Masey-Ford, cofounder of New Season Wellness, pitching a new Elderberry Elixir line.

This will be the final edition of Early Risers in its current iteration.

For five years, this community-supported pitch series has connected entrepreneurs to the people they need most, like first customers, key employees, mentors, investors, and more. Each startup gets 10 minutes to pitch, then the audience gets 5 minutes for Q&A. Attendees tap their networks to help connect these Dayton region founders with the right people to help them move their business forward.

As pitch opportunities across the region have grown, the need for this monthly community pitch series has waned. On Dec. 3, come support the pitching entrepreneurs and help us close out this event series with a bang. In 2022, stay tuned for new opportunities to practice your pitch & connect with investors, champions and supporters.
