Our week at Google LaunchPad - May 12th 2014

The My Plus One team recently attended a 5-day intensive startup bootcamp with Google at Campus in London, called ‘Google LaunchPad’. The initiative, originally launched in Tel Aviv, brings together a variety of tech startups for a week of mentoring, workshops, lectures and pitching! We found it incredibly useful and now have lots of ideas for the business, and our site. We were too busy to take many pictures but here are a few from our week!..

We were really excited to be asked to pitch on the final ‘Demo day’. Here is Founder Clare on stage.

Finally, a much-needed drink in the local pub!

During the week we also explored the idea of packaging together a local experience with a stay in a hotel, for one set price. For this, we mocked up a new site called ‘Plus One Crafted‘. We’d love to hear your thoughts on this so please feel free to tweet us, or email us on info@myplusone.net with your views!

Thanks to Google LaunchPad and the other startups for making it such a fun and inspiring week!
