ThinkHouse Fellows in the Home Stretch

April 17, 2014 11:10 AM

The inaugural class of ThinkHouse fellows is more than halfway through the program and we have some updates on their progress.  



Keegan Guizard: Collegiate Skate Tour, still the national contest series and governing body for college skateboarding, has engaged in youth programs to better provide opportunity for skateboarding youth! We have pilots programs in planning for summer camps in Florida and North Carolina this year. This is a major step toward rolling out a franchise for Collegiate Skate Tour youth programs. Also on the horizon are annual contest events as well as new events, like a Pro-Am Contest in Florida!

Zach Milburn: CityWix.com launched early in April.  The site currently has around 150 users, 90 services and almost $1000 in sales through the website. CityWix also made it to the semi-finalist round of NC IDEA.

David Shaner: Offline Media has doubled our user base to over 2100 members in Raleigh and served over 20,000 recommendations for amazing things to do here. We closed a funding round of 100k from area investors including the former VP of Angie's List and are preparing to scale into Durham and Charlotte.

More updates are coming!  Check out the ThinkHouse homepage in the meantime: www.thinkhouse.us.
