Just came back from the 1st night of the 2nd official Startup Weekend Tokyo. 90+ people this time! Majority Japanese!! Most of them pitched about the problems they wanna solve!! This is gonna be even more awesome than last time!!
I pitched about the idea I had the other day when my friend tweeted about finding food when she’s too hungry. Basically this app will take some of your preferences beforehand, when you use it, it’ll just show an arrow, you follow the arrow to a restaurant the app picks for you! My pitch was fucking awesome! 😀
It didn’t get enough votes to become a real project though (which I’m kinda glad actually). Still, a couple of apps developers came up to me and told me to let them know if I’m interesting in really turning the idea into a real app! 😛
Meanwhile, I got connected with another mobile developer who’s new to Tokyo and wants to be involved in the local Startup community by helping to bring AngelList to Japan! Hmm… I think I know just the right people to talk to about all this… 🙂
