Thanks for the updates, Jennifer (Jennifer is Max's mom)!
EXTRA INNINGS: MAX'IS Creations
It's been a great summer for Max and MAX'IS Creations. We are working with a manufacturing partner in Portland, OR called MudShark Studios to create the initial molds of Max's mugs. They recently sent photos of the molds being created for the different parts of the "Mug With A Hoop"™ and they even sent a sample mug for Max to review. It looks great and Max LOVED it! The mug size is perfect for marshmallow throwing and the it felt great in our hands. We're currently working out issues like how to make the net look more realistic in ceramic and which MAX'IS Creations stamp looks best for the bottom of the mugs.
Our focus right now is getting the first edition mugs to our initial Indiegogo funders and supporters. Max also wants to have mugs on hand that he can sell locally. Exciting times!
On the entrepreneurial front, Max was the Keynote Speaker at the YouthCities youth entrepreneurship program in May where he received a standing ovation after his speech! City Councilman Tito Jackson is now a huge fan as are others in the Boston venture community. Vicky Wu Davis at YouthCities has taken Max and his venture under her wing and she is helping us with our business planning process.
More updates from the MAX'IS Creations team soon!
