WeWork Labs

WeWork Labs Startup Showcase & Party @ WeWork Labs SF 
Jan 14th 6:00-9:30pm 

This place looks interesting -especially when it's filled with CEO's!

WeWork Labs is home to dozens of start-ups and to celebrate the cool projects that their working on they were throwing a party and showcase -so of course I crashed it! An event filled with CEO's giving demos, WeWork Labs helps early state technology start-ups grow and accelerate their businesses. Whether it's about to launch next week or just went live these platforms will make your life easier, more convenient, and simply better. All these founders found a problem and utilized technology to solve it, so meet some of the newest CEO's.

Boubou Guiro: The happiest man there, he's the CEO and Founder of OnVedeo. Boubou had a smile on his face the entire time I was talking with him and I couldn't help but feel his excitement. OnVedeo is essentially a video platform for real estate and rental properties with a big focus on their mobile app.

Jenna Bilotta: Founder and Chief Product Gal of Avocado. The Avocado software is the best way to stay connected to your favorite person (assuming your favorite person doesn't change constantly). It's an application and platform designed for two people to build and share a life, as Jenna came up with the idea of Avocado with her husband. She set out to build the most advanced couples app in the world, but why name it Avocado? Jenna told me that avocados grow in pairs on the tree... and that it also makes a cute logo.

George Ludwig: Founder of 6Builder, a tool that drives new costumer acquisition via Twitter. 6Builder enables you to execute a highly effective Twitter marketing campaign in apparently less time than it takes to drink your morning latte. I'm a pretty fast drinker but 6Builder promises to grow, engage and optimize my Twitter for me while I can just sit back, enjoy my coffee and send a hug to my avocado.

It was nearly 8pm so I ditched the conversations with the CEO's for a comfy chair. 
Crashed it- For love of new technologies!
