Demo Day 2017

This summer, 16 Macalester students took part in Mac Startups, a student-run entrepreneurship incubator. After identifying problems in the Twin Cities community (and beyond) they developed creative products to solve these problems. Their projects range from a Chinese character learning app, to an art incubator. On October 11th at 11:00am, the teams will be showcasing their work at a "Demo Day" event on Macalester's campus. Demo Day will feature short pitches from each of the Mac Startups teams, as well as a light lunch and networking.

Food will be provided! Make sure to register so we can be sure to have enough food for everyone!

2017 Teams

CupBap (Bo Kim, Eun Shin and Hans Han) aims to provide an affordable fast-casual dining chain with a Korean street food called “cupbap”, literally translated as “cup of rice”. Cupbap is designed for the grab-and-go convenience and is easily customizable, catering to the customers’ dietary preferences.

FUNL (Clinton Kunhardt, Garrett Goodstein) is a social media hookup app designed to interact with a users night life while offering and implementing safety features.

JustConnect (Ben Lewis, Rachel Stromsta) is a platform that connects criminal record holders to employment opportunities and provide educational referrals and hiring opportunities for local businesses.

Multimedia Art Collective (Juliette Myers, Zeam Porter) is a platform that connects Twin Cities artists to local communities and organizations through initiating collaborative and public art projects, workshops, and events. The goal is to create more opportunities for art and community involvement with an emphasis on social justice, artivism, and healing.

Schedule Management (Hosea Ogeleka, Anzhe Cui) is an app that facilitates event organization and scheduling, capturing necessary information from a source (texts, image) to put into a calendar and support in-app messaging system.

Tales of Characters (Eric Mok, Matthew Nguyen) is a learning app which breaks down Chinese characters into smaller components and re-unifies the components by both the historical meaning and the mnemonic stories. The character list includes the vocabularies from the HSK exam, the only standardized Chinese language exam in China, in order to provide HSK students a meaningful and interactive way in memorizing the Chinese characters.

QuickCare (Daniel Neff, Isaac Siegel, Jake Hill) is a service that delivers all the necessary amenities and love to ensure a speedy recovery when you’re under the weather.
