Babson’s Summer Venture Program

Personal Add comments

For the last few months I’ve been working hard on a web startup called ShuffleChat. In short, ShuffleChat is taking the proven concept of random/speed video chatting, pioneered by chatroulette, and bringing it to the next level. To start ShuffleChat is eliminating the pornographic stereotype associated with chatroulette and random video chatting by implementing better accountability & moderation. Overall ShuffleChat is building a brand around speed video chatting for higher quality user engagements.

I’m happy to announce that I’ve been accepted into the Babson Summer Venture Program (SVP) to incubate ShuffleChat!

This is very exciting, because throughout this program I will receive free housing, working space, resources, and mentors. Additionally, at the end of the program there is a demo day for every business to present in front of angel investors and venture capitalists. This is an entrepreneur’s dream summer.

My grand vision for ShuffleChat is very ambitious, but with enough help and support from Babson and others I know it is possible.

Now the only thing left to do is not get too distracted and finish the end of my semester with good grades for finals. Wish me luck!
