Dreams do not have to die. Finding a tech cofounder is hard, most have multiple offers or are working on their own thing. 02MVP teaches you how to build a proof of concept quick so that you can demonstrate your concept to potential cofounders, customers, investors. The idea is not to turn you into a developer, but to handhold you through the process of building a MVP so that you can test out the traction, convince customers, cofounders, investoors and go out and do what you do really want to do… Build your business and conquer the world!

Impuls Network is a mobile app that enables local businesses to blast out deals, exciting bands, or any other sales to anyone in the immediate area.

Impuls harnesses the power of geolocation to fire deals directly from bars and restaurants to your phone – right as you walk by them.

As an example, you’re walking down the street with friends on a Saturday night and your phone dings. The bar around the corner has $3 PBR tall boys all night. Nice! Night made!

Impuls empowers businesses to convert their foot traffic into paying clientele, and helps consumers discover the best of what’s going on right under their noses.
