Today Jonny and I are crossing back into the Northern Hemisphere for the first time in 5 months to fly to Seattle! We are heading to the ‘TechStars For A Day’ event and are thrilled to be invited. Being a pretty early-stage startup we sadly couldn’t squirrel enough together quite enough to fly all four of us halfway up the world, but Jonny and I will be proudly flying the Maptia flag in Seattle, on our way to the TBEX (Travel Bloggers Exchange) conference in Colorado a little later in June.
Whether or not we are ultimately successful in becoming a part of TechStars Seattle, we have already learned so much about ourselves and about our company through the application process and met some awesome people along the way. No doubt the event on Wednesday will be a hot-bed of serendipitous encounters. Nerves and excitement are brewing…
Thanks to everyone in Start Up Chile whose combined ingenuity and out-of-the-box advice helped us to find an awesome loophole in the American Airlines flight change system! Whoever said being resourceful was one of the core attributes for a start-up to succeed hit the nail on the head.
