As expected, there have been a lot of changes to the teams over the last 24 hours. From simple name changes to become more punch and memorable, to completely different ideas altogether.

The teams have gone through a huge learning experience from learning how to validate their ideas, find competitors in their space, make adjustments to their unique value proposition, as well as taste failure when things don’t go according to plan. Most importantly, team have discovered the power and necessity of pivots!

An update of our original teams as of Saturday Night are as below:
