"Startup Weekend is a movement that I believe in deeply.  Aspiring entrepreneurs can benefit greatly from the advice given by those of us who have built, and continue to build, Internet startups," says Oliver Feakins, CEO of Web Talent Marketing.    

Web Talent will be donating $6,000 in services to the winning startup, Amazi.  "Amazi" meaning 'water' in Rwanda makes it easy find water refill locations.  The company is dedicated to reducing the waste of plastic containers and aiding in the clean water crisis around the world.

Web Talent and Amazi will be working together to determine how best to grow the use of Amazi's GPS based mobile application and the number of water refill stations globally.  Matt Self, Vice President of Client Services for Web Talent Marketing, was initially skeptical regarding the business model and overall need for such an application.  "I was fairly hard on the group, but the more I challenged them, the more answers they had and passion they displayed.  We are excited to help the good people of Amazi grow it big!"

Web Talent and Amazi will be meeting to discuss the project March 18th.  All of Web Talent's Internet Marketing Services (web design, web development, paid search, search engine optimization, social media marketing, etc.) will be available to Amazi and their Founder/Chief Water Officer, Crystal Plew.  "We are extremely excited about working with Web Talent. The advice they provided during Startup Weekend helped us make sense of our data and became a pivotal part of our winning presentation.  We have no doubt that working with them will be extremely beneficial for a successful launch of Amazi."
