    SWEDU PHX was a priceless experience, motivating and inspiring me to actually employ "Design Thinking"--to see possibility rather than obstacles.

    I totally agree with Aditi! Before this past weekend, I never thought that it was possible to bring a group of total strangers together and create such complete deliverable in such a short time (54 hours from idea to working app with go-to-market model). I was on a large team (result of a few mergers during the weekend). We did not place but after the final pitch, we received some great feedback and interest from the EDTech community in our idea.

    Everyone of my teammates deserves credit for contributing their skills and expertise to make that possible...Hat Tip to the Dev team for going the extra mile staying overnight and building out a working application for our demo.

    It was soooo much fun! It was such a great experience! Super hectic weekend of trying to realize an idea in 2 days - we got to putting down the ideas, phase 1 and future roll out plans as well as a prototype for a mobile app for our sunday presentation :) our idea didn't win, but we did get support from Seed Spot for further support, which was really exciting!
    All the other ideas were awesome, so were the coaches :)
