2. Tell us more about yourself, your academic and professional background.
I hold a Masters of Science degree in Communications Design from Pratt Institute in New York and subsequently worked as a Packaging Designer in Chicago, designing packaging for brands including Axe, Dove, and Just For Me. More recently I have focused on marketing and business development within the context of two startups that I co-founded. Throughout this process I've gained quite a bit of insight into the startup world and am happy to share this with anyone looking to set out on their own.
3. Please provide us some insights on Hostelite.
Hostelite is an app for hostel travelers looking to meet others while traveling and stay updated on activities and events at their hostel. It allows hostel guests to see who else is staying at their hostel at the same time and gives the hostel operator a chance to share tips on things nearby and keep their guests updated on events and activities they're offering. Hostelite was founded late 2015 and launched in Spring 2016.
4. Where do you currently need support with Hostelite?
Currently we are looking for support and inspiration for low-budget PR and marketing strategies. We're in bootstrapping mode and are trying to push the company as far as possible without seeking funding.
