Get to know more about 2ULaundry and what excites the team about Techstars Atlanta.
What excites you about Techstars?
We’re most excited about the opportunity to leverage the program to launch Atlanta, which will be our first market outside of our home base of Charlotte, NC.
How did you hear about Techstars?
We heard about Techstars through one of our current investors, Anthony Pompliano, as well as a few other founders.
What do you hope to learn/take away from Techstars Atlanta?
We hope to build a strong network and foundation in the Atlanta market that will help make our second market as successful as it possibly can be. There is a lot riding on our ability to scale our model into additional cities, and we’re confident Techstars Atlanta will help give us the best foundation possible.
How did you come up with the idea for your company?
One of our cofounders ran and sold another laundry startup in college at Wake Forest University. After seeing other startups go after the space outside of college campuses with the wrong operational models, we had to throw our hat in the ring. Our goal is to become the first nationally recognized laundry and dry cleaning brand.
Are there any entrepreneurs or business leaders who inspire you?
Jeff Bezos, he is the greatest entrepreneur and businessman I think the world will ever see.
What did you know about Atlanta before relocating for the program?
Not much, but as we prepare to launch the market we are now very familiar with the more affluent zip codes, as well as the multifamily apartment scene.
What’s the one piece of technology or app that you can’t live without?
My cell phone, google maps, and LinkedIn
Where was your company founded?
Who can use your product?
Anyone that has to do laundry or dry cleaning in our serviceable zip codes.
