RecBob takes NextStep, begins Nike+ demo day tour

RecBob takes NextStep, begins Nike+ demo day tour | Startup, Iowa City! | Scoop.it
When five individuals in April unloaded from a vehicle with Iowa plates in Portland, you would have probably recognized them as Cedar Rapids-based startup RecBob.
Sculpt's insight:

Save your RecBob swag, it's about to become a whole lot more valuable.   We've been fangirling the Cedar Rapids based foosball pros since the early days (orange power!), so we're anxiously awaiting the outcome of their Techstars Demo Day tour. Cheer them on with us (@nextstep_io).

ClusterFlunk founders take "leap of faith," leave school to build company

ClusterFlunk founders take "leap of faith," leave school to build company | Startup, Iowa City! | Scoop.it
Six months ago Iowa City-based startup clusterFlunk was little more than an idea. Now co-founders Joe Dallago and AJ Nelson have stopped attending the University of Iowa to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams.
Sculpt's insight:

Still feels like yesterday we met these guys in the basement "office" of Joe's house. Zero cash. Zero users. Zero doubt they were going to succeed.

 

We were sold immediately.
