Roles at a startup:

Group Work: HACKATHON!

  • Groups of 5 people, brainstorm a startup idea (this is often called a “hackathon”)
    • 10 minutes for group discussion
    • You’ll get 2 minutes to “pitch” !
  • Inspiration for brainstorming:
    • What is a problem you have every day, that technology could solve?
    • What do you hate spending time doing?
    • What is a site you go to and use constantly, but that sucks to use?  How could you make it better?
    • Make it simple — doesn’t need to be complicated to be good!
