Last week we teamed up with MOJO Minnesota and Café Inc. to host a booming Mixer & Startup Showcase in the Twin Cities (before it gets too cold!). Local entrepreneurs and tech enthusiasts met at Makers Café in downtown Minneapolis to celebrate the best that the Twin Cities had to offer.
All told, there were nine different startups competing for a win in the Reader’s Choice and Best Pitch categories. It was a great time hearing all the pitches, but ultimately we and our readers had to each pick one.
Twin Cities’ Hottest Showcasing Startup – Best Pitch

Twin Cities’ Hottest Showcasing Startup – Readers’ Choice
CommunityLeader, Inc.: Crowdfunding promises to democratize private capital markets in the United States and around the world. Getting private capital into the hands of deserviing growing business, and allow a broader group of investors to particpate is essential to the economic health of our communities. Unfortunately there are significant regulatory, financial, operational and cost barriers for crowdfunding to come to market. Portals, Broker/Dealers, Developers, Business School, incubators, and financial ervice professionals want to be part of this market — but the real and perceived barriers are too high. CommunityLeader removes those barriers. CommunityLeader has compiled the necessary products and services as a seamless ecosystem, which can be cost effectively licensed with customized service packages. We allow our clients to enter the “Crowdfunding” market fast, cost effectively and with confidence that they will be operating in full compliance with the complex regulations.
Congratulations to BookBottles and CommuityLeader Inc. Your win includes an invitation to a future Tech Cocktail Week, as well as inclusion at Tech Cocktail Celebrate Conference, our national startup showcase held in Downtown Vegas in October.
