Startup Weekend

In March 2012, I attended the second annual Startup Weekend at Google’s European HQ in Dublin. Originally pitching my ideas for evolutionary history explorer Deep Time; I ended up working with the team of Stephen McManus to devise a gamified, team based game to teach entrepreneurship skills; Appace (now called Riptide Academy). Working closely with with Microsoft developer Hrishikesh Ballal, I devised both the game structure and a three minute presentation of the “world” screen; which I drew, designed and animated within 54 hours before presenting to the rest of the attendees on Sunday evening.
