What made you want to start your business/nonprofit? I have had an interest in programming for a long time. I especially have a passion for web and iOS development. I met a business partner who has a skill set that perfectly complimented mine and now we are moving on website and mobile application development and design.
What do you consider your greatest business/nonprofit success/accomplishment?
Getting our first application as a company submitted to the app store. It’s a simple Tic Tac Toe game meant only to get comfortable together, but it is our first project working together as a business and that’s pretty exciting!
How has Blackstone LaunchPad helped your business? I have met with Kate from the BLP on several occasions. She has been very helpful in guiding me along the process of starting our business as well as getting me in touch with people from KSU who might be helpful in our venture.
