Entrepreneurs pitch new businesses to advisors

1 Million Cups group to hear about mental health alternative treatment and fashion accessory products.

NAPLES —  Two Southwest Florida entrepreneurs will each have six minutes to pitch their start-ups to peers, mentors and advisors at the Naples chapter of 1 Million Cups on Wednesday, March 13 at Naples Accelerator. Developed in 2012, 1 Million Cups has 183 chapters nationwide to educate, engage and inspire entrepreneurs over a cup of free coffee.

Presenting companies are Infinite Pouches and Cinch It. Following their pitches, audience members have 20 minutes to ask questions and provide advice.

Infinite Pouches is an organic, herbal supplement designed to reduce stress and anxiety. Kyle Pumariega, a graduate of the Florida Gulf Coast University Entrepreneurship Institute, aims to change the face of mental health by providing alternatives to prescription medication. His oral supplement is fast-acting because it’s absorbed through gum tissue and goes directly into the bloodstream.

Cinch It is a fashion accessory invented by Naples resident Shelly Pryor Aristizabal. Cinch It not only makes you and clothing look slimmer, but it can change the look through cinching and gathering. 

The Naples chapter of 1 Million Cups meets the second Wednesday of the month at The Naples Accelerator, 3510 Kraft Road, Suite 200.
