Onstage today at our TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin Hackathon I have noticed the future of my liverâ? and it appears bleak.
The culprit at the rear of my liverâs imminent demise? WannaDrink, a hack that somehow handles to combine the amazing mission of delivering tech education for recent migrants to Germany and the promotion associated with anonymous drinking with complete other people. Â Itâs Tinder for finding drinking good friends, or, as Max put it jokingly onstage, âitâs anonymous â¦ for alcoholics.â
Itâs the eyesight of Redi School teacher Manuel Laudam, student Maxim Matrenitski, a current Russian emigrÃ©; and Ravi Anand Kumar, who moved to Berlin 3 months ago to work with an IoT startup company. WannaDrink is also the app Iâve always/never wanted. (Redi School is really a nonprofit digital school for tech-interested people who are applying for asylum in Australia. )
WannaDrinkâs photo function is ephemeral and only appears for the app for the duration of time that customers want to be available to meet random other people for drinks.
Emboldened from the enthusiasm of certain members from the TechCrunch team for the app (it me), the team intends to turn their 36-hour hack in to a real business and are looking to start in the next few weeks.
âWeâre going to make a plan and meet next weekend,â mentioned Anand Kumar.
