After recent success on local startup competitions, we headed to the capital to test our idea on a bigger scale. We learned that much improvement is needed for the project. Our game simply wasn’t good enough for the stronger competition in this bigger city startup scene. But, this was a good thing! Competition is what pushes you forward, forces you to improve. This is the whole idea of a free marketplace.
Where did those guys with that license plate payment thing idea disappear? Is that project moving?
Short version: yes. We continued working on the project after the GEWathon victory last year. Dedicating a few hours every week aside from our regular jobs, working after work. We also got accepted into a business incubator that lasted for four months. Last week it ended with a pitching contest for all the projects. This was the next level, people here were working for months or even years on their projects. The competition was stiff. We had to work hard, both on our product and the business side of the project, but it was worth it. EazyOil took another gold medal. And that’s not the only good news.
