3 Day Startup is a three-day, caffeine-fueled event where undergraduate students get together and build companies. The action starts this afternoon at 2 p.m. in Tong Auditorium on the UW-Madison campus and doesn’t stop until Sunday at 11:59 p.m.
If you want to see the final pitches after a long weekend of hard work, participants will be presenting at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday in the UW-Madison Computer Sciences building, room CS1240. Please RSVP here if you plan to attend.
SnowShoers will be dropping in all weekend and encouraging participants to build off the Stamp. Come join us for what’s sure to be a weekend of fantastic ideas!
SnowShoe has experienced great growth over the past year. This fact was highlighted over the weekend, as we surpassed 3000 downloads of our native punchcard loyalty applications.
This is a huge number considering these apps can only be used at seven specific retail locations in Wisconsin and Illinois. We are encouraging an average of 428 customers per store to buy more products more often, and to post to facebook, twitter and foursquare about their experiences.
