This weekend was my second time at Auckland Startup Weekend – I helped form the team for an idea pitched by our team leader – around connecting recent university graduates with businesses.
Presenting at Auckland Startup Weekend
As is always the case at Startup Weekend, I had an amazing time and learned heaps!
The team in the middle of intense discussions with the great mentors.
I love taking group trips, but sometimes the planning can be complex – collating all the options, deciding on which ones, knowing how much it will cost, and keeping all the info available and up to date.
This weekend I went to Auckland Startup Weekend, hosted at Massey University, and I pitched an idea for a shared travel itinerary – a tool that lets you plan a trip with friends, build an interary, and track costs.
Pitching on Friday afternoon.
We formed a team, and we were off!
After a busy 54 hours, we pitched to the panel of judges on Sunday evening – after their deliberation, the winners were announced, and we are honoured to be placed second out of the 12 teams participating!
Receiving our second place prize.
What a fantastic experience!
