Startup Pirates is a one-week program that enables aspiring entrepreneurs to get inside the startup world and learn how to develop a business idea. Startup Pirates held its first ever program in Tel Aviv, Israel. After one week of rigorous workshops and brainstorming, my team pitched the idea of 'Bouncer- Wait less, party more'. It is an app which allowed partygoers to skip the queue by paying a small amount depending on the club and the queue. The idea was supported by viable business model and was well received by the VC and the judge panel. It was covered by Times of Israel.
