2015 Greensboro Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase

Recently RoboMustache attended the 2015 Greensboro Chamber of Commerce Business Showcase at the Greensboro Coliseum. Firstly, I’d like to thank Joel Bennett from the Greensboro Partnership’s Entrepreneur Connection for having me. I can’t thank him enough for all of the support and dedication he has shown to me and RoboMustache. I’d also like to thank a good friend for coming to help support me at the booth, thanks David!

What is a business showcase?

A lot of businesses come together, old and new, from all different aspects of business, and showcase their products and services. It is a good place to make connections or find something you might want/need for your business or personal life. There are good people, good food and good times to be had.

What I did at the business showcase …

I met a lot of people from a lot of different businesses, a few of which might be a good resource for RoboMustache in the future. I also met a lot of people that were simply enamored with what RoboMustache has to offer and that never gets old. I enjoy being able to light up someone else’s life, which in turn lights up mine.

One of the things I did while at the business showcase was participate in an Idea SLAM. An Idea SLAM is when you get four minutes to pitch your business idea and then you get four minutes of Q&A. I’ve done a few in the past, so I am getting more familiar with them. It can still be nerve-racking though. The first few seconds are typically the hardest, but once you get over that initial hump then it goes a lot smoother.

Several days at Co//ab

This past Tuesday I went by Co//ab to drop off a few things and was asked to give an impromptu pitch and talk to some potential Triad Startup Lab Summer Session students. It was by far the longest pitch/talk I’ve had to do in front of others about RoboMustache, but it was the most relaxed. The whole thing was just an information session for the potential students and as an alumni I was to give them an understanding of what to expect and an example of a pitch. Best of luck to all of you that get into the startup lab!

The next day I was back at Co//ab at 8 a.m. to do another Idea SLAM. It went well, didn’t really choke up. Still need to work on body language a bit though. I’m getting there! If you’d like to see some pictures from that event, including some of myself and robots then go here.

Other news

  • Yesterday, I stopped by Animazement, which is held at the Raleigh Convention Center. I mainly went to hang out with friends, but made sure to drop off a few fliers while there. If you picked up one and are now reading this because of that, then you are awesome! Make sure to stick around because there is a lot of goodies down the pipeline.
  • I’ve also been planning a Kickstarter. More on that when the time comes.
  • I currently have no events planned in the near future, but I am looking into scheduling things very soon. I’ll let you guys know where you can find me when I know more.

Anyway, thank you to everyone that has shown me and RoboMustache support over the last few months. I really appreciate it. It means more than you realize.

  1. Mr. Wade,

    My son-in-law gave me the HELPER BOT for my 68th birthday Saturday!! He knows I do like to put things together, but I just couldn’t wait on the right time to assemble it with the “help” of the grandkids, had to get on it right away. REALLY impressed with the quality of the “plywood”, the design, and the craftsmanship. WELL DONE!!

    Looks like bamboo plywood. If so, that is a very green, “renewable resource” as bamboo is actually a grass, but you already knew all that. The dowell looked like birch, but not sure.

    You have probably already talked to Hobby Lobby, Lowe’s (right in your neighborhood), and Home Depot. Have you contacted the Boy Scouts/Cub Scouts?? They like these types of kits for projects and sell various kits.

    Get back to work!!
