Proud to be a BigApps Finalist
We’ve got more big news to share about RentHackr—news we’ve had to keep quiet until today. BigApps — the annual competition for the best ideas that revolutionize how people live, work, learn, and play in NYC and around the world — has named RentHackr as a finalist!
If you don’t know much about BigApps, here’s the quick rundown: “BigApps is a competition that empowers the sharpest minds in tech, design, and business to solve NYC’s toughest challenges. From May to July 2014, over 100 teams built, pitched, and demonstrated strong and innovative projects. 20 BigApps finalists are moving on to compete for over $100,000 in cash prizes!”
We’re thrilled and honored to be a finalist and eager to move on to the final stage! So what happens from here? Well, basically we do what we always do: continue to make RentHackr better with feedback from our users. We do that by building better tools for you to hack the rental marketplace and empower renters all over the world. In mid September the BigApps selection committee will announce the winners. Wanna help? Check out RentHackr, or if you’re already hacking, get the word out and tell your friends.
Meanwhile we’ve got plenty of other shenanigans happening: On Wednesday RentHackr is repping NYC and pitching at Fenway—no, not that kind of pitch; Fenway Fast Pitch is a different kind of fierce competition. Six companies at WeWork throw their best three minute pitch with a follow-up three minute Q&A in order to win $15,000 and strutting rights around the office.
Cross your fingers for us tomorrow and keep on hackin’.
