A proposed last minute mobile booking app for tours, events and activities called GoStandBy has won Startup Weekend Gold Coast and its founders want to launch the product within two weeks.
Team leader Nathan Challen was bullish after the win, telling Startupsmart.com.au that “the biggest takeaway of the weekend was what kind of commission operators would give away.
“It appears we’ve been pushed into the agent model and there seems to be no issue getting 30%.
He said the team has already been approached by interested investors, customers and operators to deliver the platform and is now evaluating the best way forward. Speed is of the essence, he said, because “Life’s too short to book ahead!”
