HOVR.ME

~ Brief: Product Search In Just One Click

~ Team Dynamic: Friends from high school with diverse backgrounds to cover all the proverbial bases from operations, finance to development. If there was a cookie cutter mold for a startup, Adam Jarczyn (CEO), Vick Mehrotra (PM), Dave Williams (CFO) and Robert Gresik (Engineer) would be just that.

~ We want to provide seamless shopping experiences to customers who are used to a broken system. If you want something, you should be able to click and buy it. Thats our Hovr legacy. The dream starts with Pinterest integration and Tumblr (in the form of a web browser tool). Adam.

~ Demo Day desire: Cold hard cash for expansion.

MYGOODNIGHT.com

~ Brief: Your Personal Nightlife Ambassador

~ Team Dynamic: These guys arent only savvy but slick, which is the perfect dynamic for the exciting world of connections, events and parties. The founders, Dan Gunam, Bryan Ferrerira and Simon Goldstein have an immense background in event management, brand marketing and advertising. Not to mention a pair of rolodex contacts ready and waiting.

~ Take the guesswork out of where to go next by seeing what fun events are going on around you, live (aggregated social media feeds) by city and genre. The incentives drive a powerful combo of cultivating loyalty and satisfaction. Coming down the pipeline is group planning capabilities to make planning and paying even easier. Dan.

~ Team Dynamic: These arent hard core sports fans or gamblers, these are super geeks. Business ones at that. The CEO Nicholas Murphy and VP Paul Barnard may have more experience in years under their belt than the other teams do in merely birth years.
