DargAroundMe took third place at the recent Michigan Collegiate Innovation Prize competition
, setting the stage for the startup to score a run of business plan competition wins.
The 7-month-old startup, which is made up of Wayne State University students, is creating software that enables people to quickly share documents with others in their immediate vicinity. It won the Web/IT prize at the Michigan Collegiate Innovation Prize, giving it a few thousand dollars in seed capital and some valuable experience.
"It was a journey for us," says Kun Wang, co-founder of DragAroundMe
. "We learned a lot from the program."
The team of five people learned how to grow DragAroundMe
through landing customers, validating adoptions and keeping customers. It also gave the team a platform to present the latest additions to its technology.
"We added quite a few features," Wang says. "We're making sure it’s compatible with all of the different platforms."
