Startup Weekend: Serve Creatively

Networking at Startup Weekend Indy

 

I pitched two ideas last night at Startup Weekend that made the final sixteen. The first was an augmented reality sexting app called Pants Party.

The second is servecreatively, a platform that helps creatively minded non-profits complete meaningful projects by connecting them to service-minded creatives.

In the meantime, feel free too explore my work/me through my LinkedIn, Twitter or Vimeo.

See you soon!
