A Professor of Organic Chemistry came to me with an idea. She had an innovative approach using her own card-style game for teaching ‘epiphany’ moments in her classroom, those moments where her students would be able to absorb complex concepts. Turning this into an app would be a major undertaking.
I tapped the shoulder of a good friend, Joe Engalan, and we worked together to help her realize her vision. Since then, we’ve been helping her get to SXSW, hire staff, and overall grow her fledgling, bootstrapped business.
