We often hear the “how-we-started-out” stories from big shots in the industry, years after they make it. And while these stories are always inspiring, they’re sometimes fluffed up in retrospect and don’t portray the nitty-gritty, highs & lows of launching a startup. Well now you can hear it from the real brave souls who are fighting the startup battle right now.

Dating apps are hot right now (Just a little bit of a pun intended). With 10 million users on Tinder every single day and a bunch of competitors, everyone seems to be doing their part to help single people meet The One™. Including one of the most exciting teams participating in our HACKcelerator, Blink, based out of Austin, Texas and the winner of our AH8 Austin Hackathon. I sat down with them to find out what they’re up to.

It’s not everyday that you hear about hackers working to revolutionize the chemical instrumentation industry at a local hackathon. But the winners of our AH8 Cincinnati hackathon aren’t your typical hackers. When I spoke to them, we were still waiting on CEO Olivier Lemaitre. “It’s pretty nice, we all live in the same apartment complex so he’s just walking over to my place,” CTO Andrew Carl told me.

Checking In With Buddy Watch, Winners of Silicon Valley 2014

When Buddy Watch won AngelHack Silicon Valley last year, I wasn’t sure that it was really happening. Seven Red Bulls into my first hackathon, I thought I might be hallucinating.

How times have changed.

This morning we launched a Kickstarter campaign for Buddy Watch, and after a year of the startup grind, I have a lot more clarity following the all-nighter.

That’s not the only thing that’s changed. Buddy Watch is a smart personal safety application that automatically detects and responds to emergencies no matter where you are, even if you can't reach your phone. No hardware required. I went into the hackathon knowing that I wanted to build a smarter application of a dead-man switch so that people in the middle of an emergency didn’t have to unlock their phones and hit a panic button. What we have now is much more sophisticated. We use GPS and accelerometer data to look for a series of triggers that actually tell us if you’re having an emergency.
