Wazoo! Q and A. Kansas City Startup Weekend Winner.

November 30, 2012

Startup Weekend is no easy hackathon to win—especially in a place like Kansas City where startup ideas and driven entrepreneurs are flocking in by the hundreds (if not thousands!).  This fall’s Kansas City Startup Weekend brought together some of the coolest startup ideas, the most hungry entrepreneurs and, of course, loads and loads of caffeine and high energy.

This year, Startup Weekend Kansas City crowned startup Wazoo as the winner.  Wazoo is a mobile application aimed at helping zoos provide a better experience for visitors.  The app features geolocation on a live map of zoo parks in order to help users navigate their way through zoos as well as real-time free featuring updates from other zoo-goers to help users stay in the know on what’s happening.

In this episode of Think Big Radio, Derek sits down with Kelly Tomlinson, founder Wazoo (and Kansas City-based UI designer) to learn about Wazoo’s Startup Weekend experience as well as what’s next for her new, “wild” app.
