Who are you?

What’s your background? Give us a brief bio.

  • We are currently a two-person team, Kennedy Brown and Zach Simunic. We started working together in different organizations at IU but quickly got tired of having little influence and impact within the organizations. After considering our skill sets and their synergies, we founded our first company, Vecstone, together. Vecstone is a small augmented marketing and advertising agency where we have the opportunity to help our customers tell their stories and better connect with their audience.
  • A year ago, at a festival, after wandering around several blocks trying to find the most appealing truck, Kennedy had the idea for an app that would show all the nearby food trucks, and their menus, to help the user decide. The idea was refined when Zach saw a gap in the way trucks communicated with their customers after some months of managing social for our food truck client.
