Tim Kern is the co-founder of Wawadoo — a company name that scrunches together the phrase, “What do you want to do?” The idea is to help people find things to do on a site that allows them to rate events and suggests events based on their interests.
“Houston is so big. You have to drive everywhere and you don’t see all the new venues or find out about events,” Kern said.
Kern and his co-founder Chris Allen, a friend from high school, recently moved to Pittsburgh for the financial and professional support offered by a business incubator called AlphaLab. The state-supported facility will provide space, cash and advice for five months in exchange for a small stake in their company and a promise they will maintain some operations there.
