meet real people, not fake profiles
LoveBuzz was a side project inspired by two of my girlfriends who wanted to meet that someone special, but found online dating was not the route for them. The original concept centered around a wearable device to help capture that serendipitous moment of crossing paths with someone in the real world that you might be interested. The concept took 1st place at a 2014 San Diego Startup Weekend event and was explored as a viable business over the course of ~8 months.
I conceived, pitched and led a 4-person team to win a ~120-person San Diego Startup Weekend event. Post event, I explored the concept seriously as a fellow in the Startup Leadership Program San Diego Chapter to evaluate business viability. In the process I learned lot about entrepreneurship, myself, and what all the startup hype is about.
