Startup Giant Thinkwell (@GiantThinkwell), who debued as “Raising Uncle Jesse” at Startup Weekend Seattle last March, gave their demo today in front of over 300 investors, community leaders and other startups.

During the Seattle Startup Weekend, Kyle Kesterson and Kevin Leneway spent their time dreaming up and validating an amazingly funny idea for a Facebook game. When they pitched that Sunday night in March, panel members, Gregg Gottesman, Bob Crimmins, TA McCann, John Cook, and Sherry Reynolds, awarded Kevin and Kyle’s team the “Most likely to make a million dollars” prize…. well, here they go!

Today’s demo was amazing, to say the least. Kevin and Kyle have taken an idea started in the course of just one weekend and turned it into a extremely promising startup sure to get some follow-on support.

Kevin and Kyle are not the only Startup Weekend team to be accepted into programs such as TechStars and then go on to do extremely well, but we’re proud of this Seattle-based team and wish them the best! Check in and see what they are up to and be sure to keep watch for amazing things from them in the future.
