The past half year, an impressive number of student startups took home important awards during tech events and demo days. As a young team it’s nice to get recognition from a panel of judges or an audience, but what happens after you take home the big cardboard check? Time for a new series where we catch up with up-and-coming student startups. This week: HurryQ and U-Violet.
HurryQ: no more lines
HurryQ was last years winner of ACE Venture Lab’s Baby Pitch Award, and also took home the first prize during a Demo Day organized by the University of Amsterdam. The startup wants to make waiting in line a thing of the past. With the HurryQ app, you no longer have to physically wait in line in front of museums or other tourist attractions. Instead, HurryQ will hold your place in the line digitally. The app notifies you when it’s time to go back.
