Build a Team

Teams are encouraged and you don’t have to be a designer or software engineer to get involved. Feel to reach out if you have an idea that applies and I’d love to chat:

We’re got a skilled team, but are currently lacking an awesome idea. Here is a taste of some ideas we kicked around yesterday.

The ones that fit the criteria…

💡A Slack Bot for lunch ideas

💡A tool site free video lectures of entire classes for a degree

The ones that don’t…

💡 Security cameras taped to birds.

💡 La Croix wrapping paper.

💡A beard club. Profiles of awesome beards and their owners.

…we’re stilling figuring things out.

Even if you don’t have an idea yet, throw your hat in the ring before October 31 to be counted and you can figure out an idea later:
