After forming up last night, the teams have made some progress in building their products and businesses for the pitch tomorrow night. There has been some setbacks and some pivots (one team has pivoted a full 360 degrees!), but everything is settled and everyone’s heads are down. The following is a quick roundup of the teams:
Making startup ideas come to life. A community platform for connecting Startup Weekend participants with resources to see their idea through.
Crowdfunding the developing world. A crowdfunding platform that gives entrepreneurs in the developing world access to capital in the developed world.
Pay from your table. A mobile application that enhances the restaurant experience by allowing you to check out when you want, so you don’t have to wait on the waiter.
AirBnB for 3D printers. Print your 3D models on local machines to save time and money.
The designated driver for your txts. A mobile app which helps prevent the dreaded drunken text.
Using social media and other distribution channels to get socially conscious products into the hands of consumers and businesses wanting to promote their green image.
