Startup Weekend

This past weekend, 50 entrepreneurs gathered together in Raleigh, NC for Startup Weekend.  The event was a wonderful experience.  Out of this meeting-of-minds, four unique web based businesses were developed from conception to launch. You can read more details about all four startups at the RTP Startup Weekend blog.

Take the Guesswork out of Finding Great Bars!

The business I was involved with launching is called BarsForUs.com, an application used for finding detailed information on local bars.  Using an on-the-fly tagging system, you can narrow local bars down according to your interests and have their descriptions and location delivered instantly. barsforus-screencap2.png
