The Grind – Ran into a couple of guys and got to talking over dinner one night about how there are some people who come down to SXSWi to conceptualize, code, crunch, create, and communicate their ideas to the world. So we decided to do just that and came up with a great startup: It all started from just throwing ideas around, to staying up late to formalize our idea, to actually pitching our idea to a VC (Venture Capitalist)…all down at SXSWi. What is our idea? Glad you asked. Check it out:
