[Video] Mondie Gonzales Of Escape In 60 Wins $10,000 Grand Prize At Our Summer 2021 Cleveland Small Business Impact Program Showcase

On Wednesday, September 9, Cleveland Small Business Impact Program participant Mondie Gonzales delivered the winning pitch for her business, Escape In 60, during the program’s culminating entrepreneur showcase—taking home the top prize of $10,000.

Escape In 60 is a traditional escape room and teambuilding venue, offering thrill-seekers five fully immersive escape room experiences as well as unique, customizable events. Mondie and her co-founder plan to use the $10,000 award to continue to grow the teambuilding side of their business and possibly hire a new manager for their downtown Cleveland location.

After the competition, we had a chance to catch up with Mondie to learn about her Impact Program experience and how the intensive 12-week program helped her look at the business in a whole new way.
