Why did you apply to Race To Revenue? What are you hoping to get out of this experience? We applied to Race to Revenue so we can work full time on our passion while surrounded by a diverse group of creative entrepreneurs. The IDEA center has been essential for our success so far so we could not pass down this incredible opportunity. 

Has there been someone who has helped you with your venture so far?  Tom Oldham and Peter Flood are our two mentors. Tom has been extremely helpful with market awareness and is very knowledgeable about the baseball industry. Mr. Flood has helped immensely with the business end of Mound Power and our direction forward as a venture.

What do you want to learn more about, relating to business development in general or your own company/venture specifically? We would love to learn more about legalities, taxes, and other logistics that come after starting to have revenue.

Entrepreneurial fun fact: Mound Power's team all played soccer... not baseball.
