Ramp Up Meetup #9


Well, 'Ramp Up Weekend 3' is behind us - and it was a huge success!  65 attendees, 13 teams, all-star judges, and 10K in prizes awarded to some amazing startup ideas!


This meetup will be a chance for those who didn't attend the Ramp Up Weekend to see some of the ideas that placed well at the Weekend, and find out how these ideas have progressed since the weekend event.




1) SpotSquad (1st Place)

SpotSquad is a crowdsourced parking control mobile application.  Allows users to quickly report parking violations and get rewarded!

2) Permission Click (2nd Place)

Teachers can send digital permission slips allowing parents to watch a video/read what it's for, and pay via pay pal.

3) Improv Explorer is a visual tool allowing guitarists to 'explore' options for note choices over chord progressions that they not have considered.

4)....TBD... If you have something you'd like to Demo to the group for feedback, just drop a line to [masked]!


--Idea Scrubbing:

Have an idea you'd like to find Co-Founders for?  Just want to see if others like it too?  You'll have time to pitch to the group and see if you idea takes root!


--Startup Drinks

We'll head over to the Kings Head Pub (a short stroll by foot) for some friend-making, idea sharing, and general entrepreneurial hi-jinks.

    I really liked the atmosphere and I met some really interesting people. I am more of a technology guy but I really like listening to the ideas and maybe they need an IT guy haha. Good times, I will go again.

    I would go on to say that where price variation is possible, people who can be take advantage of, will get taken for a ride- it goes even beyond race and gender. Even a white male like me would be quoted a price that is higher than the median quoted price :-), based on my looks, my dress sense etc Will keep you updated on the website. I got some folks in Ottawa interested but for now I don't have anything concrete to disclose.

    SpotSquad has been featured on over 200 media outlets around the world (NBC, Fox News, Sirius XM, Globe & Mail, CTV, and so many more!), resulting in over 30,000 hits on our site and nearly 10% signup for our advance Beta! It's been a whirlwind, and we're going to share the story.. Looking forward to it!
