Everything that begins, at one point, has to end. Sadly, my time with InTuneTo was no exception.
Earlier this year, at age 19, I co-founded InTuneTo along with Kevin Cruz. We went through The Iron Yard Academy and later got accepted into their Accelerator that was based in Spartanburg, South Carolina.
The Accelerator was three months and was honestly an incredible experience. We got $20k in seed funding and an unlimited amount of resources, connections and mentorship. Demo Day was possibly the best part of the accelerator. I got to present at BMW Performance Center to investors in the morning, and in the afternoon to a little over 300 people.
Experiencing all this definitely made me come out of my shell more. I related with more people, learned tons more about starting a business than anywhere else and what the startup grind really is.
This definitely is not my last venture, but the beginning of many. I’m excited to see what opportunities will come in 2016.
