As I mentioned in my last blog, I arrived in Denver a few weeks ago, just a few days fresh from ankle surgery in Boston. After a pleasant journey and flight with United Airlines, and gate to taxi wheelchair service from the kind folks at Denver International Airport, and after a pleasant ride with an Ethiopian taxi driver who told me about the best Ethiopian restaurant in Denver (Nile Ethiopian Restaurant, in Aurora), I arrived at the Embassy Suites, Denver Tech Center (DTC) in Centennial, CO.

The sad truth is that, even in this day and age, it’s hard for disabled people to travel.
I recently had ankle surgery to stimulate tissue regrowth in an 8mm “hole” in my ankle (talus chondroplasty), where bone and cartilage should have been. The surgery went fine – the challenge began once the surgery was over, and I began the arduous (and long) path to recovery, starting with 8 weeks on crutches, ensuring that my left ankle remains non-weight-bearing.
Thinking about launching a crowdfunding campaign? Great, because that’s what this blog is all about! Before you dive in to your campaign full-throttle, keep reading for some tips, tricks, and lessons learned, that I’ve collected throughout my tripchi Indiegogo campaign journey, which ended mid-December 2013.
Time to celebrate, we are now more than 50% funded!
I also wanted to take a moment to explain to you WHY I am so passionate about transforming the airport experience.
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.
