Nerves must be wound tight right now at CO+HOOTS, the co-working space where the latest Startup Weekend Phoenix has been underway for the past 48 hours plus. The final pitches being made-complete with hacked demos and spiffy PowerPoint slides-and the teams behind them must certainly be buzzed after the essential all-night dosage of Red Bull fuel.
Here are just some of the ideas that cropped up yesterday:
- Degenerate: A Vegas betting app.
- Tipulate: About micro payment and tipping
- Invenspeak: This is all about mobile inventory management.
- Openstick: Apps for USB drives
- Moderncork: A winery info app
- The Beggar App: A social begging trailblazer
Other pitches involved a diverse range of services from a businesscard-meets-Facebook app to a less flashy but entirely useful app for restaurant waiting times. That’s not all: throw in pitches involving “action steps out of books” to the charitable enterprise Roundup and Startup Weekend is living up to its reputation as a breeding ground for game-changing entrepreneurial ventures.
Alas, there is no word yet on who was crowned top dog and went home with the freebies and accolades but expect fresh updates starting tomorrow. For the official juice on Startup Weekend Phoenix go here.
