On behalf of the StartupWeekend Space Team, I would like to introduce you to one of our mentors, Weston Hankins. He will work intimately with you and your team, disseminating his knowledge and experiences, making sure you and your team will be successful.
Weston is passionate about disrupting the status quo in large industries and using technology to transform the way we interact with each other. With experiences as diverse as programming for DaimlerChrysler and Microsoft, paving the way for the global sharing economy with CouchSurfing, or his recent interest in space, there’s a broad range of topics to approach him on. Weston is currently co-founder of WunderAgent, a solution for property owners, and of Jetty, an iOS app for events, as well as strategic partnership coordinator (Europe) for the Space Generation Advisory Council and long-time mentor at diverse startup accelerators in Berlin.
