24-hour Ideation Hackathon to improve Spare's growth strategy

Company Website


As part of the first week of Startup Institute, students were grouped into 7 cross functionals teams to collaborate and ideate. Students were tasked to prioritize with little direction, think creatively, and quickly develop a sound strategy. For this IdeaHack, we were tasked to develop a content/growth strategy to improve user and partner acquisition for Spare while maintaining a $0 budget constraint.

Judging Panel:

Andra Tomsa - Founder & President of Spare Change Inc.
Dan Simon - Board Member of Spare Change Inc. and CEO & Co-Founder of Vested Communications Agency
Shaun Johnson - Co-founder of Startup Institute


My team was chosen as the winner of the IdeaHack based on the final deliverable and presentation.
