Startup Weekend SCV returns to College of the Canyons

Last year, 24-year-old Santa Clarita resident Alex Honadel teamed up with a group of strangers to build a startup in just 54 hours and compete with others for a chance to win big prizes.

Up against an improved potato slicer and an alternative to the fidget spinner, Honadel’s team of college students won after pitching to judges Park Shark, an app that shows drivers where to park in the Los Angeles area to avoid parking tickets.
