What was your biggest expense in founding MONK? What ended up being way more affordable than you’d imagined?Monk Provisions: Biggest expense? Design costs, for sure, and packaging. And then legal fees associated with company organizing documents, stock option agreements, and so forth.On the other end of things, we were gifted a photo shoot from close friends who run a commercial photography studio.
“Sabra changed the way Americans eat,” Beardwood&Co. owner Julia Beardwood says. “The refreshed design preserves the essence of Sabra’s original look while more persuasively telling the story of what is within... fresh ingredients, bold flavors and a food famous for its ability to foster connections.”“Great design doesn’t change what a brand is,” Eugenio says. “It helps reveal and communicate the best of what the brand wants to be, the best of what the brand is.
Let’s talk startup costs. Can you provide a breakdown of what costs went into getting MONK started?Melanie McGraw: Early on, before we even had a brand name, we developed a pitch deck with the intention of raising money. We were lucky to have a number of friends or family members who were well versed in valuing investment opportunities and navigating early stages of startups, and they generously gave their time and insight to talk things through with us.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
