In the summer of 2014, the founders of GameWisp had the opportunity to participate in the Techstars program in Chicago. We knew it would be a grueling experience, but the magnitude of the challenge was nothing we could have realistically anticipated. A snapshot of our time: our team worked 11 hour days, 6 days a week (and sometimes 7). We were all painfully far away from our family and friends. We had never been challenged on so many levels, at such an incredible pace. When they say rocket fuel, they mean rocket fuel.
