Story

Adam Mann decided last minute to attend Startup Weekend Phoenix. As he heard people pitch ideas for the next great iPhone app, Adam was reminded of an idea himself: he hated waiting for the Phoenix Light Rail. Even worse, he hated barely missing the Phoenix Light Rail.

While he didn’t intend to pitch an idea that night, Adam did. Of the 51 ideas pitched, Adam’s idea was voted to the top 10. A team formulated around Find My Train. The team worked from Friday night to Sunday evening on a prototype. Of the 12 teams that presented, Find My Train took 2nd place. The team was given awesomely-tacky trophies and was showered with $15,000 worth of prizes. In the course of a weekend, Find My Train was born.

All aboard,
Adam, Al, Brett and Michael

PS – If you know other Light Rail riders who hate waiting for or barely missing the train, we’d greatly appreciate you telling them about Find My Train.
