We had a successful event last Wednesday night at Greentown Labs at 28 Dane Street, Somerville, MA – an awesome and bright co-working and lab space. As usual, Somerville and Cambridge never disappoint as a hub of startup innovation, intellect, and passion – perfectly reflective of the core values that DukeGEN Boston aims to foster. Our discussion on why startups fail similarly didn’t fail to disappoint. More pictures can be seen here.

It was tripchi’s pleasure to have participated, and pitched, in the inaugural Concur PerfectTrip DevCom 2013.
It was not only a great networking opportunity, but also a great learning opportunity. I learned about many of the intricacies of the Concur API, so that when we’re ready to apply for the App Store, there won’t be any “gotchas.” I also met many of the Concur dev support team, so that I now know who to go to for help in case I have questions.
Hello there fellow travelers and technophiles,
Love to travel but hate airports? Us too, and we want to change that!
That’s why my startup, tripchi, has just launched a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo for our airport mobile app, tripchi, which needs your help to launch globally. Our goal is to help travelers worldwide have a better airport experience.
Not only are we entering the age of Airport 2.0, where airports are improving (at least in terms of food and retail concepts), now in-flight safety videos (you know, those ones you HAVE to watch with your undivided attention prior to take-off) are also improving.
Namely, they are getting funny. Airline marketers are finally realizing that the best way to sell boring content is to make it interesting (read: not boring).
