Startup Wrapup

Startup Weekend Health Philadelphia ran from Friday 2/15 through Sunday 2/17 and it was an awesome experience. We learned that pre-formed teams have a harder time attracting new members than teams formed on the spot, but decided to work on our project through the weekend anyway rather than split to join other teams. That was a good idea.

Not only did we have a dedicated block of time in a great space to focus on the project, but I estimate we had about eight great conversations that could have taken us weeks or months to organize individually. The need to repeatedly describe the project to every new person we met – plus the initial and final presentations to the group – really honed our rocket pitch.

Here’s a link to our slide deck for the final presentation.

Thanks to team members Michael Cabus and Eileen Francisco for all their hard work.
