It has been one heck of a busy weekend with AngelHack LA in town this weekend along with a handful of other events. This is the first time I’ve been in one place for more than one hour and it has been an absolute blast! It all kicked-off yesterday morning with Daina speaking at AngelHack LA sharing the Fashion Metric story and Life After AngelHack:
After Daina’s talk we went to celebrate with a friend who just got their PhD and then off to another startup event we had been invited to. We ended Saturday night in Hollywood with some much needed R&R at the Foundation Room with a good friend.
This afternoon I was a judge at AngelHack and had the chance to hear 14 teams pitch their ideas and show-off what they built in the last 24-hours. There were a lot of awesome teams that built some very cool things. In the end a team called EyeWeight who built an augmented reality hack for keeping track of your diet won first place. 41 total teams competed in AngelHack LA with six making it into the finals and one taking the grand prize which included a trip to Silicon Valley and mentorship from some heavy hitters up north.
Daina and I were also honored to be interviewed as part of a video series that was being shot on-location that day. We shared a bit more of our startup story and gave advice to other entrepreneurs and founders thinking of attending a hackathon like AngelHack.
Now it’s 7:45PM and we are ready for a break in the action, what an awesome weekend! I hope you all are enjoying your Sunday evening, get ready, one of my favorites days is coming up, can’t wait for Monday!
