Launch Festival 2013 Sight and Sounds
At the Office Hour stage Jonathon Triest (@jtriest) was interviewed. What was interesting is that at the end of the interview they asked the crowd to pitch and the best pitch would have a meeting with Jonathon. I was surprised how many people went for it. Here is the moment.
Launch Festival: Day 2 - Now 37 Startups Launched
Yesterday 18 startup lanched. Today they beat that, and what a batch it was. Including one internet connected coffee machinge that brews the perfect coffee. Here are my notes on the launched apps. As the presentation where really fast passed I certainly missed some obvious facts. I'll correct them as I find out. Again the day was organized in three launch sessions.
While at the Launch Festival I thought I give Uber a try.
Round 1: airport
Coming out from the airport there was a long line of Taxi waiting, so I didn't need to try Uber yet. First Taxi in line is a minivan. I ask the driver he takes credit cards and he says of course. Well, often it's not the case. So I jumped in, he had a backseat TV and the rider was great. He was also named Daniel. Arriving at the hotel he accepted credit cards wit Square. Got my receipt per email. Perfect.
