LSA senior Daniel Lee was one
of the students to come up with a
top 10 idea. He pitched Drunkor-
child.com, a website where users
post ambiguous stories and others
have to guess whether the person
posting is drunk or a child. The
team also launched a mobile app
for the website.
Lee said the website, which was
launched over the weekend, has
"We're getting posts right now,
and they're just coming in and it's
hilarious," Lee said.
Though Lee was the team lead-
er of 10 other members, he said the
project was truly a team effort.
"I didn't think of leading them,
I thought of working with them,"
Lee said. "As much as it was my
idea, I couldn't have done it with-
out them, realistically."
LSA sophomore Alex Perlman.
a member of Lee's team, said he'd
never participated in a Startup
Weekend, but was excited by the
results of his team's work.
"To leave here with a tangible
product that's operational that can
be used from now into the future
is pretty cool," Perlman said.
Startup Weekend was created
in June 2007 by Danny Newman
and Stan James, who felt they
needed a creative and collabora-
tive outlet to foster their inno-
vative ideas, according to the
company's website. In June 2009,
Marc Neger and Clint Nelsen took
ownership of the company, chang-
ing it to a non-profit organization.
Since its creation, Startup
Weekend has held events all
across the United States.
Last night's event also included
presentations by University alum
Michael Gaiss, senior vice presi-
dent of Highland Capital Part-
ners- a venture capital company
that guides start up companies-
and Ben Kazez. CEO of Mobiata -
a mobile software company based
in Ann Arbor. Both speakers also
served on the panel of judges.
LSA freshman Nancy Xiao, who
participated in the event, said she
had previously attended a Startup
Weekend in Seattle. As a member
of MPowered, she saidshe encour-
aged the organization to host the
event because she thought Ann
Arbor would greatly benefit from
its creative atmosphere.
"It's addictive ... I looked
around Ann Arbor and I thought,
'I have to bring it here. It is not a
choice,"' Xiao said.
While college campuses around
the country have hosted Startup
Weekend in the past, most of them
are focused on MBA students,
Xiao said. She said the University-
hosted event was unique because
it focused on undergraduates as
well as MBA students and profes-
Looking toward the future,
Xiao said she hopes MPowered
can host another Startup Week-
