scout is the easiest way to plan for a trip and discover things to do

I worked on Scout with 2 other developers as a passion project. We found ourselves traveling frequently for work and wanted a more intuitive experience to plan and coordinate trips with friends.

We entered a hackathon hosted by Y Combinator, pitched a prototype of Scout, and finished 2nd place out of 40 teams. We won office hours with Michael Seibel, YC CEO, where we received good advice on how to scale the business.

I came up with the idea for Scout, led end-to-end product design, and gave a 2 minute pitch to other hackathon participants and a panel of judges including Michael, Sam Altman, and Adora Cheung.

Thanks for reading.
