Mygooi, the Des Moines-based the mobile technology brand that brings people together using innovative digital products, said it is planning its second GooiKaraoke competition for June 24 at Exile Brewery and Restaurant, 1514 Walnut Street in Des Moines.

Networking expert Danny Beyer, the evening’s emcee, explained that GooiKaraoke is designed to move participants out of their comfort zones, encouraging people to interact. “This is a fresh form of ‘disruptive’ networking,” he said.

Beyer, who hosted the first GooiKaraoke competition, held in Omaha, Nebraska, on May 7, is the founder of Bow Tie Wednesday ( and the person to beat in the speed bow tying contest being sponsored by Mygooi (

In GooiKaraoke, he explained, “Singers pick their favorite song, but instead of singing its original lyrics, they make up their own extolling their business. It’s like writing a networking elevator speech but with more sizzle and style. It’s a blast – totally gooi.

“People can just show up and network, meeting cool people and having a great time.”

The winner of the competition will receive a promotional video for his or her business, created by television producer/director/actor Ed Ellington and valued at $10,000. The second place finisher gets a MacBook and third an iPad Air.

The first competition was won by Michelle Kaiser, owner of Alotta Brownies Bakery, in Fremont, Nebraska. She captured the audience’s vote by singing “Who bakes your brownies” to the tune of Who Let the Dogs Out.”

Said Susan Corpuz of Corpuz Family Dentistry in Omaha, and a Mygooi ambassador, “I love Mygooi’s fresh, disruptive take on business networking that emphasizes relationships and warm leads.”
