Week One of StartFast 2012

The first week of Startfast 2012 was a whirlwind of activity as our 9 companies barely had time to move in and get their feet on the ground before the mentor meetings began.

Incredibly valuable meetings took place between our companies and StartFast Mentors Martin Babinec, Peter Rothberg, Kyle Blumin, Elisa Miller-Out, Guha Bala, Brad Treat, John Coccocia, Matylda Czarnecka, Micah Rosenbloom as well as accounting firm Evans & Bennett. We”re grateful to these mentors for their time spent with our founders.

Several notable milestones this week:

  1. HackStar Ben Gelb hit the ground running and began helping each of the teams with technical tasks.

    New York Business Journal as well as in a story on regional public radio station and NPR affiliate WRVO.

  4. Guard My Angel founders Amir Cohen and Hagar Romach received press recognition in a story on WRVO.

After an eventful and productive week of 16 hour days, the teams caught their breaths and networked with companies from the Syracuse Tech Garden at the first StartFast happy hour mixer and a Saturday afternoon barbeque hosted by our Program Coordinator Eric Fuchs and his wife Mikaela on Skaneateles Lake.
