A mother-daughter startup from Nashville made their national TV debut on Wednesday and even Rooster & Butch came to their screening party.

Rooster & Butch are Texans who made their millions in the oil business.  Now they want to share their wealth with other entrepreneurs by investing in lucky companies with a solid character and smooth pitch. You can find out more about A&E’s Rooster & Butch series here.

In the episode, Mixtroz Co-founders Kerry Schrader and Ashlee Ammons pitched their company to self-made millionaires Mike ‘Rooster’ McConaughey and Wayne ‘Butch’ Gilliam.

If you couldn’t have guessed by their personal trip to Birmingham, Mixtroz won them over (by about $50,000 to be exact).

Having the fun-loving Mixtroz founders and Rooster and Butch in the same room made for lots of laughter, Miller Light and a great time.  The refreshments included movie snacks like popcorn (extra butter) and GIANT pizzas.

We’re so excited for Mixtoz’s future with this investment from Rooster & Butch.

A combination of ‘mixer’ and ‘introduction’, Mixtroz is an event app that takes the awkwardness out of networking and makes it more profitable for you and the event planner.

That means no more pretending you’re looking at important messages to pass the time at your next networking event (praise).

Targeted questions connect attendees with people in similar industries or interests and catalogs their information for the event organizer to learn more about their customer.

It’s a pretty cool startup and we’re excited they’re working in Innovation Depot for the next 8 weeks.  Learn more about the Velocity Accelerator program here.
