    Thank you Brian and Nick for yet another great Meetup. The showcase was a great learning experience. I think there is a great deal to be learned from the Pool Cleaner and the AR Pillow's presentation. Good visualization with good communication. The tone of voice and ways they answered questions made a difference in how they made you feel. And it was a nice treat to see Mr. Mangano attend the showcase.

    Great concept! IMHO, I think some presenters while great inventors can do a bit better as presenters. Especially, if getting funding is a goal, though not on that day, a product backed by a good presentation and vice versa, of course, would see the light of day faster I feel. Just my two cents'

    Maybe because my background is communication, including coaching and mentoring, I focus more on presentation skills. No offense!
