Over the weekend of February 20, 2015, I get to experience what it was like to create a startup. It was fun! The Reimaginate team composed of 2 developers (I was one), a business major student, an artist, and an entrepreneur with a knack for user experience design. Together we tried to make a business to get children interested in reading again through interactive story.
Within 54 hours, we scrambled together a business plan, a mockup website, and an example story to show how it would work. It was a unique experience—everyone worked tirelessly over the whole weekend through self-motivation. Sadly we didn’t win competition but the experience was enjoyable and I got to meet many people throughout the country who shared the interest of improving education.
