On February 12th, 2014, Meeting of the Minds presented a 1-hour webinar featuring the non-profit accelerator Tumml and the innovative urban start-ups in their program.
How do you launch a startup designed to improve city living? How can you overcome the regulatory and legislative challenges that come from launching an urban impact startup? Come hear the case studies from those working in the trenches of smart city startups!
Tumml, an urban ventures accelerator, will discuss its experience in helping launch and build an ecosystem of urban impact startups. They will be joined by two of their startups: (1) Corral, a multipickup ridesharing solution (think Uber meets Supershuttle) and (2) HandUp, a crowdfunding platform for the homeless.
Julie Lein is the Co-founder and President of Tumml, an urban ventures accelerator with the mission of empowering entrepreneurs to solve urban problems. Through a four-month program, Tumml invites early stage companies into its office space to receive hands-on support, seed funding, and services to help grow their businesses and make a significant impact on their communities.
Rose Broome is the Founder and CEO of HandUp, a crowdfunding tool for the homeless. HandUp is a tech startup with a social mission, which has created a new way to donate directly to homeless people and other in needs in the US.
Snir Kodesh is the co-founder of Corral, the first on-demand multi-pickup solution. Corral has an iOS app offering extremely affordable (50% of an UberX) and convenient transportation solution. By sharing the ride, cost is significantly lowered, environmental impact is minimized, and you get to ride to your favorite venue/ event/ concert with other people with similar interests.
