ForeverLawn

The ForeverLawn Sports Complex at Hall of Fame Village in Canton, OH, will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony in celebration of their grand opening. The ceremony, which is open to the public, will take place on Tuesday, August 2, at 5:30 p.m. at the ForeverLawn Sports Complex at Hall of Fame Village located at 17 th Street NW, Canton, OH 44718. The first phase of the ForeverLawn Sports Complex at Hall of Fame Village features three outdoor sports fields and the indoor performance center surfaced by the exclusive synthetic turf provider. These fields, as well as the associated facilities, are part of the previously announced 10-year multimillion-dollar agreement between ForeverLawn and Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company, the only resort, entertainment, and media company centered around the power of professional football. “We couldn’t be more pleased to have such an incredible partner in ForeverLawn,” shared Michael Crawford, President and CEO of Hall of Fame Village (HOFV). “The excellence they represent is clearly evident in our fantastic Sports Complex and all the tremendous work they have contributed. I know these fields will be one of the showpieces at Hall of Fame Village.” “We are proud to partner with the Hall of Fame Village to create this premium sports destination,” says Brian Karmie, Co-Founder of ForeverLawn. “The ForeverLawn Sports Complex at Hall of Fame Village is a flagship project close to our home office in Louisville, and we look forward to positively impacting our community through this project for years to come.” Dale Karmie, brother of Brian and Co-Founder of ForeverLawn, continues this sentiment: “Having attended games at Hall of Fame as a kid, and now living in this area again, it’s a real privilege for ForeverLawn to partner in this project.” The opening celebration will be the first major event of Enshrinement Week and will be attended by prominent members of the Canton community as well as members of the Hall of Fame Resort & Entertainment Company and ForeverLawn teams. “We are confident the ForeverLawn Sports Complex at Hall of Fame Village will be a hallmark for the Canton community and the many thousands of guests the complex will host each year,” says Derek Karmie, SportsGrass Brand Leader. “We’ve been working with the Hall of Fame field and facilities for the past six years, and our team has been installing fields at the ForeverLawn Sports Complex since April. It’s a very rewarding feeling to see the whole project coming together and open to the community.” Following the grand opening, the ForeverLawn Sports Complex at Hall of Fame Village will be open for public use. Hall of Fame Village and ForeverLawn will continue construction on the remaining fields, including Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, throughout the remainder of their 10-year agreement. “We are proud to open the ForeverLawn Sports Complex at Hall of Fame Village to provide an exceptional experience for athletes across the country,” says John Regas, Vice President, Brand Partnership Activation for HOFV. “Through our great partnership with ForeverLawn, we have created an all-encompassing complex with the premier artificial and synthetic fields, locker rooms, and concessions for all to enjoy.” About ForeverLawn ForeverLawn ® improves spaces and communities through innovative synthetic grass solutions.

Cloudrise announces $10M in total funding

Cloudrise

Cloudrise, a tech-enabled services firm focused on securing data wherever it resides, is pleased to announce it has completed financing to raise the company’s total to-date funding to $10 million. Since launching the company in October of 2019, Cloudrise has worked with 100s of global customers, including numerous Fortune 500 enterprises, on their data protection and cloud security projects. During this time, Cloudrise has continued to exceed all stated financial targets and is investing significantly to expand service delivery and research and development teams, while raising the bar for data protection. To help further growth and innovation, Cloudrise secured additional funding in July from Three Kings Capital, with add-on capital from existing investors Stormbreaker Ventures and the Greater Colorado Venture Fund. With success comes the need to add more talent to Cloudrise’s Board of Directors, and Bill Ryckman, Managing Principal at Three Kings Capital, will join the Cloudrise board. "We are very pleased to be partnering with Cloudrise and its proven management team led by Rob Eggebrecht," Ryckman said. "Cloudrise is a well-known leader in the data protection market, with particular expertise in the cloud, and a reputation for delivering exceptional service. As more and more businesses embrace the cloud, Cloudrise has become an integral partner to a diverse set of clients across the country and around the world, helping to keep their data safe from cyber criminals. With its high-quality team and technology-enabled platform, Cloudrise is well-positioned to serve our collective mission on a much wider scale.” Cloudrise co-founder and CEO Rob Eggebrecht is excited about the future ahead for the company. “Our latest funding venture is a major milestone, allowing Cloudrise to fast-track industry-changing initiatives for how professional services are delivered in the cyber industry via our tech-enablement approach,” Eggebrecht said. “The current status quo for delivering professional services in the cyber industry is outdated, inefficient, and does not scale to the world of cloud computing in global enterprises today. While organizations are contending with the exponential growth of data and an excessive amount of cyber security application/platforms, traditional service providers are stuck in a mindset of a help-desk, ticket-driven world, attempting to throw more people at the problem.” Instead of throwing more time and resources at complex data security challenges, Cloudrise leverages a proprietary service delivery platform to increase efficiencies, enable better collaboration, and reduce time needed to deliver high-value outcomes. By bundling software and humans, Cloudrise delivers tech-enabled services that allow customers to realize an immediate impact for their business. Cloudrise continues to build on what has been a groundbreaking 2022, in which the company announced: The acquisition of CyberOrchard, an information security managed service organization located in the United Kingdom Jason Bird, CyberOrchard’s founder and CEO, as CTO at Cloudrise Cloudrise named as Netskope’s Global Services Partner of the Year Placement on the Managed Security 100 on CRN’s Managed Service Provider 500 list for 2022 ‘Best Solution in Data Security’ at Global InfoSec Awards by Cyber Defense Magazine Hiring Rob Zillioux as CFO The opening of a new global headquarters facility in Grand Junction, Colorado About Three Kings Capital Three Kings Capital is a mission-driven, family office-backed private equity platform that invests exclusively in cyber security companies.

DataWeave Releases 2022 Alcohol Report: Digital Alcohol Sales Show 3 Newly Emerging Trends

DataWeave

Price hikes seen as early as December 2021 for 27.5% of the 20,000+ alcohol SKUs tracked A switch to healthier, Ready-to-Drink beverages & premium agave-based spirits A retailer focus on hyperlocal growth strategies as measured by our Hyperlocality Index DataWeave, a global leader in eCommerce intelligence and AI analytics, today releases its 2022 Alcohol Report: Digital Visibility Is Reforming the Alcohol Industry. The report provides a data-rich view of online alcohol pricing, distribution, and demand trends across retailers and brands. DataWeave examines price changes and assortment composition by category and retailer in light of pandemic, supply chain, and market-driven economic changes. Analyzing over 20,000 alcohol SKUs, the report offers a Hyperlocality Index to showcase how successfully retailers have employed a hyperlocalized approach to the assortments they carry, along with growth trends in healthier ingredient categories like ready-to-drink (RTD) cocktails and agave-based spirits. DataWeave’s 2022 Alcohol Report shows price changes by online alcohol category from December 2021 to May 2022, as well as price changes by retailer and state-by-state geography for the same period. It also indicates shifts in product availability. “Looking at these aspects of nationwide online alcohol prices state by state provides insight into why alcohol retailers are moving toward hyperlocal strategies. In addition to ongoing global supply chain constraints and inflation, distinct regions of the country show strong preferences for particular beverages. This has amounted to significant variations seen across the country in price changes and availability,” said Karthik Bettadapura, CEO of DataWeave. “Our state-by-state analysis revealed how online alcohol retailers focused on expanding their geographic reach across the country as delivery laws evolved.” The 2022 Alcohol Report reflects changing consumer preferences and an increasing interest in health consciousness across categories from December 2021 to May 2022, with ready-to-drink beverages increasing in availability across categories, for example. The premiumization of agave-based spirits such as Tequila and Mezcal resulted in a 30 percent year-over-year sales bump, the report notes, as it contrasts this category with growth in others; there is also a deep dive into Share of Search insights for top brands in the whiskey category. “With inflation looking to remain at about 9% and dynamic pricing changing the competitive landscape daily, online alcohol retailers will need to focus on improving their inventories by expanding local reach, decreasing their delivery time, optimizing pricing, and improving the customer experience,” said Krish Thyagarajan, President and COO of DataWeave. We see our 2022 Alcohol Report as a bellwether for online alcohol sales trends as inflation continues to dominate the consumer mindset.” Report Methodology To come to its findings, DataWeave analyzed 20,000 SKUs, tracking price variations and stock availability across 12 online alcohol retailers and 1,500 brands, dating from December 2021 to May 2022, noting price variations and stock availability by retailer, state-by-state, and by category. # # # DataWeave is a leading provider of advanced sales optimization solutions for e-commerce businesses, consumer brands and marketplaces. The AI-driven proprietary technology and language-agnostic platform aggregates consumable and actionable Competitive Intelligence across 500+ billion data points globally, in 25+ languages, with insights to drive performance for more than 400,000 brands across 1,500+ websites tracked across 20+ verticals and ensure online performance is always optimized.

Have You Had Your Monthly Mental Health Checkup?

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

Just as you visit the doctor for a physical or a dentist for regular tooth cleanings, you need to take responsibility for your mental wellness. How? Take a mental health day at least once a month, so that you can de-stress and recharge, says Dr. Michele Nealon, President of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. During these challenging times of crisis, it’s important to focus on your mental health as much as your physical health. “When your body is signaling you with a headache or stomach cramp, you need to pay attention to those symptoms,” she says. “Likewise, if you feel depressed or anxious, or if you feel constantly tired or unable to focus on tasks, it’s imperative you do something about that.” You may need to seek professional help, but Dr. Nealon suggests first giving yourself a mental health checkup as part of your self-assessment. Here are four inflation-proof tips to stay emotionally healthy: 1. Move your body. Try a new activity like stretching or going for a walk or hike to clear your mind and de-stress. 2. Eat a nutritious meal and hydrate. Focus on eating well and nourishing your body. 3. Catch up on sleep. If you are sleep-deprived, it can impact your mood and long-term health. 4. Be productive with your hobby and find balance. While crossing one item off your list can make you feel accomplished, spending the rest of the day doing what you enjoy will help you decompress. Taking time for self-care is a vital part of your mental health checklist regimen. And money should not be an excuse. “You do not need to spend money to relax,” says Dr. Nealon. About The Chicago School of Professional Psychology Integrating theory with hands-on experience, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology provides education rooted in a commitment to innovation, service, and community for thousands of diverse students across the United States and globally. Founded in 1979, the nonprofit, regionally accredited university now features campuses in iconic locations across the country (Chicago, Southern California, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Dallas) and online. TCSPP continues to expand its educational offerings beyond the field of psychology to offer more than 30 degrees and certificates in the professional fields of health services, nursing, education, counseling, business, and more. Through its engaged professional model of education, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and an extensive network of international partner institutions, The Chicago School’s students receive real-world training opportunities that reflect their future careers. The Chicago School is a proud affiliate of TCS, a nonprofit system of colleges advancing student success and community impact. To learn more, visit www.thechicagoschool.edu.

Minuteman Press Million-Dollar Circle Member Michael Levy Grows Sales for Levittown and Farmingdale Franchises

Minuteman Press International Inc

Michael Levy owns Minuteman Press in Levittown, NY located at 3000 Hempstead Turnpike. In June 2021, he also purchased the original Minuteman Press franchise in Farmingdale, NY located at 324 Main St. Already a member of the Minuteman Press International President’s Million-Dollar Circle, Michael has continued his strong sales growth in the first two quarters of 2022, including record monthly gross sales in March 2022. Key Drivers of Growth When asked about the key drivers of his growth in 2022, Michael shares, “Some would say luck, I would say persistence, perseverance and simply being known to be someone who gets things done. While there have been many challenges due to supply chain issues for the past year or so, I was able to use that to my advantage.” Michael further explains how he has been able to manage and overcome supply chain issues, saying, “For example, I had a customer contact me for a job I had never done before but I had done other jobs for this customer. It was a huge job, for 150,000 each of two envelopes. Someone else, who normally does this job for them, was not able to get the stock. So, the customer called me and told me what happened and asked if I can help.” He continues, “I spent two days researching and I was able to get both items for them and deliver them when they needed. One of the suppliers was through one of the field reps at Minuteman Press International, so it was great I could leverage that connection with my franchisor. I ended up producing $25,000 worth of envelopes I had never done before, and they just recently asked me to quote their next order of 200,000 of each one.” Michael sees the wide variety of products offered by his two Minuteman Press franchises as another competitive advantage. He says, “It’s examples like that envelope order plus the other items we offer that most other printers do not, such as in-house screen printing, embroidery, dye sublimation, and stamp production, that allows us to stay busy and grow. Another key is to have enough customers ordering products that when one is slow, others are not. This is a key ingredient, especially with my larger clients.” Promoting the Return of Live Events on Long Island As more live events, concerts, ball games, and trade shows return to Long Island, Minuteman Press is well-positioned to pitch in and help promote them. Michael shares, “It is very nice to be getting orders for tickets, programs, journals, and most importantly, items for trade shows and community events. Promotional items and apparel have really picked up over the past 6 months and that is because these events are happening again. That certainly gets me excited to be able to offer such a wide range of products that cater to all of my customers.” As for what advice he would give to other Long Island business owners right now, Michael shares, “Of course, every business is different, but one thing all businesses must do is to market themselves. Marketing is a very wide-ranging word and can be done in many different forms. Simply wearing a logo polo shirt is marketing. In addition, advertising, mailings, flyers, business cards, promotional items, apparel, and anything you can put your company logo on are all forms of marketing.” He adds, “That is exactly where I, as the owner of two Minuteman Press franchises, come in and help. We can put your logo on just about anything that allows you to market your business. I always tell my customers when they ask, ‘What type of marketing should my business do?’, to try a little bit of everything and see what works best for your specific business.” To find your local Minuteman Press on Long Island, visit their brand new consumer website, https://minuteman.com.
